Re: Piet's 2020 52 Birds

LOL - thank you Steve and Frank - yeah, will have to try single point focus - my main loser category is when they go close to ground or water - I will have to research best setting for bird in flight involving single point.

week 21 - common Tern I think it is a common tern anyway.. the fish got punished, I saw the dive and splash (no worthy shots - not in focus) and the wind was raging. But these little fighters were out there. Even in the wind, while flying I saw this bird flip the fish in the air and swallow it whole...

Re: Dandelions X2

my vote would be in between - I prefer the color in that for some reason, the dandelion seems softer and more delicate.

had to try and by itself my advise seemed kind of blah. I ended up giving it a bluish cast and increased the contrast in the center. Not much different than your versions, but I gave it a shot.
