Mellory - nice shot! I can feel the intense cold in this pic. Well done! :dance:

Massimo, lovely shots indeed! I see the talent was out to display. :wink:

Switchback, magnificent photos - some of those close-ups are mind-boggling, and those flying birds soar superbly through your pixels!! I don't have the eye you do for a great pic, so I cannot fathom how you say that you need practice still!! :huh: :huh: They look phenomenal to me.

I know I wasn't at the meet, but I would like to ask a techncal question here please.

I've noticed that intense red can be very difficult to render accurately on a digital camera (seldom had problems with film); is there a secret to setting the camera slightly differently: often my reds come out too saturated and "wash" over inot whites and light clours adjacent to them.

OWN,

I don't know what camera you are using, but on my D90 I can setup custom picture controls where I can determine sharpening, contrast, saturation, RGB colour levels etc. So, if I had an issue like that, I would tweak one of my custom picture controls to suit what I am shooting.

Of course, this can be fixed in post processing, especially if shooting in RAW. Otherwise, just make sure you camera settings aren't over saturating your pics. All camera sensor differ though and "interpret" colours a bit differently, but let's see what the others comment is on this.
