7th May 2015 - Goldfinch by pamknowler

7th May 2015 - Goldfinch

I have bought a book to explain the camera manual and it's gradually becoming clearer (I think!! LOL!!) I am really liking the silent shutter - better than the loud clunk!! The Goldfinches were posing for me this morning.

This shot was taken with RAW and uploaded to my laptop which has LR5 - finally!! Not sure what I am going to do about my PC though!!

Uploaded for my extras album.

Wow so thrilled to see this on PP this morning! All three shots from yesterday on PP! Many thanks for all your great comments and Favs which got them there!

WOW just been told this shot is on the TT and it is No5!! Whoopeee!! Highest place in 3 years!! So wonderful to see this amongst shots from lots of people I follow and admire!!
Gorgeous colours Pam. The book sounds interesting I think I could do with reading something like that as I know I'm not making the most of my camera!

Beautiful photo of a lovely bird. I think I am going to have to do a lot more reading to get the most of my camera.

@paulaw I have downloaded two books onto my kindle Paula. 5D Mark 111 Digital field Guide and 5D Mark 111 for Dummies (that's me!!) I really want to learn how to use this camera. I had the Mark2 and didn't use half of the things on the camera!!
