    You must have a good camera

    When people see my shots, I often get the comment, "You must have a good camera".

    Well this shot is from my camera, what do you think?

    My husband took it. I was going for a break and I always ask him to hold my gear. I always find shots like this when I go to process my photos later after birding. Oh, by the way, that is my lucky shirt when birding.

    Just needs a levels adjustment and a bit of sharpening and it will be a cracker of a shot

    Wasn't there a video doing the rounds where Adobe had some future program that would make that shot tack sharp? Then you wouldn't need such a good camera Shelley haha

    What annoys me more is, when some people see my camera and lenses, is, "Gees, that must take good photos!"

    Is this the first time you've posted one of these shots? I'm curious as to why you chose this particular shot to post?



    Cheers.

    I left my camera with a bunch of other enthusiasts while I went to the loo and came back to find photos of the butt of another one of the people from the trip, and several other images that had to be deleted pretty quickly.
    Not sure I'll be following your lead and putting them up here though.

    As for the camera taking the photos, I was showing some photos from that same trip (admittedly only the good ones) to a work colleague, and she said, "Wow, your camera takes great photos" - yeah, it's not like I had much to do with it (actually probably too much truth in that, but Shhhh... don't tell her that) but I had to forgive her, she's a Nikon user, so probably isn't used to good photos

    shelley - OMG that's an overprocessed shot lol
    You should find out what the person's profession is who made the comment and make a similar comment in return

    Nice bokeh! But a tad soft
    It might do well an an abstract comp if you PP it to death.

    Also it might be the camera, so buy a next time !!

    People see me with my 300/2.8.

    "How much zoom has that got?"

    "None."

    Even more annoying is "If I had a camera as good as yours I reckon I could take good shots too".

    Here! Go for it!
