Great Tit

by Blaze

He doesn't mind the rain ...
Taken through a window so it will not be as sharp as if it were taken outside. The difference in AF speed is astonishing ... my own reactions could do with this !!!
Not quite as sharp as I would have liked - practice makes perfect !

I like it, shame the head was not a tad lighter to make the eye more visible, but that's me

Thank you, Malc. I agree, it would be better a wee bit lighter. As it was, I had to remove a distracting bit of grain from his beak (not physically !) - it looked like a white blob.

Smashing shot through the window, how are you liking the K3?

Thank you, Maria
It's taking me time to get used to it. I love the weight and feel of it. Unfortunately the weather has been awful since I got it - dull flat light and almost incessant rain ! The only times the sun has come out is when I haven't been in a position to take photographs !! Never mind, it can't stay like this forever and perhaps I should use a bit more imagination

Sharpness looks OK to me Sally, the only thing this needs is a shadows adjustment in post processing to bring up the dark areas a little.

We're having the same awful weather, roll on some decent, even if cold, weather.
