You may or may not be crazy, but chances are they look underexposed to everyone but me. I do my post processing on an old non-HD laptop that's on it's last legs; Ian pointed out the underexposures from the last batch so I'm now double checking my work with my phone. How's this one from today?View attachment 623223
Much better exposure ;). To my taste they could probably go up a stop or half stop still, but not dark like before!

Cross posted in the birds and reptiles/amphibians threads respectively: 120fps / 180 degree shutter.

This was taken from a clip showing it taking off. Instances like this are where 120fps really offers an advantage over 60fps. Unfortunately, even this frame rate isn't remotely good if you want to get frames of birds (or at least small birds) in flight.

This was extracted from a clip showing it submerging. I was looking for a decent frame of it fully submerged, but the ripples distorted the gator's shape beyond recognition.

Both of these are uncropped and essentially SOOC (except for some compression by ffmpeg).


This lens is perfect for my tele-macro needs.

Two gators (I'm assuming a bull and one of his cows) basking at the San Bernard NWR.

you assume wrong..................gators don't interact in that way, they mate and move on.......leaving the female to tend to her nest and raise/protect the young. It's just two gators hanging out in the same area for some sun.
I know that gators don't stay together after mating, I just figured that, with the absence of any gator of comparable size in the vicinity, it was a male who was basking with a female (likely his).

Assorted birds and a goat all taken with the Olympus OM-D E-M1 Mark II and Little Tuna. A few were taken with with the bundled compact flash (FL-LM3).

I’m glad that you clarified photo #4. I was about to get out the bird book.

Running east from Newport, Oregon, Hwy 20 is the longest contiguous road in the US. It goes through Yellowstone, which apparently also marks the end of any reason to drive it. No offense to those in NE, IA, IL, etc., but holy flatness, Batman- that sh!t's boring :biggrin:

My niece is normally as sweet as can be, but hand her a regulation softball and she turns into a stone cold assassin. I've got many shots of her pitching, and her expression is always the same: nothing personal, just business. Shot through the chain-link backstop- check out the bokeh balls...
