armtuk: Cheetah (photography bird)
Today is Saturday, which means I get to go out during the day and take pictures anywhere I want, well, within reason (Phipps conservatory in Pittsburgh is on my list, but that's a weekend, not a lunch-time jaunt). Based on reading I did, I decided to mount the 100-400mm directly on my camera without the extender, which is supposed to improve picture quality, and also means I get auto-focus back.

It was a good call. Today's pictures I think turned out better than almost anything else I've taken. I noticed right away looking through the lens that colours seemed brighter and the picture seemed very sharp. On these pictures, I hardly did any colour modification at all in Aperture. All I really did was crop, and occasionally sharpen.
