gordzam: I personally think the WB is incorrect and the picture needs more yellow and red shift.

Probably so. I relied on auto WB.

TheManWhoWas: I really like this photo and think the composition is bang on. But now people have pointed out the WB being off I can see that could be tweaked warmer.

Probably so. I relied on the auto WB.

JerryShots: I love bird shots, I love owls, I love showing/seeing things in a photo we'd never see or notice in person - All that said - The cropping/composition of the shot absolutely murders any potential this may have had, imo.
The WB is off.

The background was rather distracting. Furthermore, I wanted to concentrate on the eyes and bill.

ackebous: For me, I think seeing at least the entire head would make it a better shot.

Background would be distracting.

Nice and sharp, perhaps crop to make the bird less centered.

Nice shot of a star cluster, although given the high ISO, the image may not be so clear nor clean.

Nice tourist-type souvenir shot although the people moving about sorts of distract from the beauty of the structure. But again, it is something you cannot avoid in a public place. A wider shot can however make the people smaller and less distracting.

Nice shot but perhaps moving back to give more space on either side of the two windows will improve it.

Tracking a moving subject is difficult especially at night so I guess your ISO is quite high and the picture somewhat noisy and not that sharply focused.

Capturing a flying bird is not the easiest task, I have tried it myself. Understandably, getting a good perspective or composition is not that easy due to the split timing required.

On photo Enraptured in the Passion challenge (2 comments in total)

Thanks Dusty. The shot is handheld, JPEG, without flash. I don't like bringing tripods to events like this, it hampers my movement. Furthermore, I was sitting in the middle of the second or third row so there is no space for a tripod. I have taken acceptably sharp handheld shots with my 18-300 mm at slow shutter speeds up to or sometimes even exceeding its four stops VR capability. My slowest acceptably sharp handheld shutter speed so far is 1/4 second at a focal length around of 18 or 20 mm with this DX lens; my arms were pressed firmly to my torso to steady the camera. I guess being a hobby airgun target shooter (especially with an Olympic style pistol shot one-handed) helps steady my grip.

An iPad is US-branded but manufacturing is subcontracted in China, does it qualify?

In reply to:

dcdigitalphoto: I don't really understand why a power house camera like this doesn't have a basic setting that appears on other cameras. I'm talking about TvAv where you set the shutter speed and aperture and the camera works out the ISO required. I have found it extremely useful shooting sports.

Even my lowly D7000 has auto ISO in manual mode.

Nice photo but "No BW, color only" rule.
