Incredible number of geese. One thing is the noise, but they have a tendency to S___ all over the place to. I hope they stay out of your garden ... :-X

Has anyone played with digiscoping? The first picture is the view through an iPad.... the second picture is the iPad through a 15x70 binocular...

The pictures are completely unedited, with the exception of shrinking down the size for the CR website....

I went out to the lake again at the weekend, I tried to focus manually this time and I got some good results, I’ll start off with my favourite pic of the day, ISO 400, 640th, f8 shot with my Sigma 500mm then cropped about 50%, I still see that it’s a bit soft, can anyone help my improve my sharpness…..without buying and using LR!!!!
Second pic was shot at the same settings, and so was the third!!
