Oh well. Some other time maybe.

Just a little color to brighten up the long,cold winter...
Yes. Using Photomatix with very mild settings. It gave me more detail in the foreground than I could otherwise get.
Argh, my teenage son has just used up my broadband bandwith so viewing and posting images is "fun".
Here are a couple of "skippy" in a field.

The lighting was extrememly harsh with the background in full sun and the kangaroo mostly in the shade. Took a lot of tweaking in PS5 to get passable images. Taken with a Nikon D90 and Sigma 150-500mm lens.
My bit of learning for the day: "Skippy the Bush Kangaroo" -Eastern Gray Kangaroo. Nicely done with that big lens and the pp. I esp. like the first one.
I can't help it. More from the usual place. Cheers, Matt
