    Notes- I keep being impressed with the performance of my Nikkor lens. This image is the result of the largest ever crop I have ever done to an original file. Cropped from original 7424 x 4924 down to 1510 x 1008 then resized for web to 1200 x 801
    Hopefully I haven't gone too far. It looks fine to me but I am sure someone with better eyes will find some technical fault with it.

    Good one Narelle. Yet another in your series.
    I think your crop is fine, with enough detail for my 24" screen.
    You did well to get the eyes of all four birds in focus.

    Wow! You've captured the expressions wonderfully. The kids greeting Dad (I think) and Mum thinking to herself; I'm doing all the work here

    Superb Narelle, my eyes arn't so good but this looks fine to me. I like the plumage detail of the babysitter and the bedraggled look of the diver. Great family shot.

    Another goodie from this family. Great poses and interactions from all in the shot, and those Nikons aren't a bad lens, that's for sure!
