Alvin the Chipmunk

Photo Information
Here it is. My first close up with my "new" K100D Super. I used a cheap B&H 80-205 with diffused on-camera flash. Added more blue in LR as background was too similar in tone. Will get outside and shoot on Saturday.

Nothing wrong with the K100D Super, is there? You don't always need the latest, greatest K7 spec camera to take a decent picture. This is nice and sharp, good colour. Have fun with your K100d super.

I 'upgraded' from my K100D Super to a K20D, and I'm not always convinced I did the right thing! The K20D is noticeably heavier, and the 15MP files are much slower to PP. Nice shot, by the way, I like these kind of incongruous close-ups. This one might have benefited from a slightly looser crop, and having Alvin not quite so far over to the left.

Glad to see I'm in good company! Thanks for the comments.

Thanks for the comments. I wanted Mr A as large as possible hence the duper tight framing (no cropping applied). He should be further right, thanks for the critique. I look forward to more.
