Nice shot Paul. I saw a nice tip the other day where a twig is attached to the feeder. When the bird lands on it you do your bit and the feeder is not in shot and looks more natural. Going to give that a try.

7.15, nothing wrong with being keen, nice overall exposure and good detail. The shrub shot can be difficult because you have a lot of depth and different lighting conditions and a range of colours. The eye can get confused and you end up not sure what you are looking at.
Not sure about your camera but there may be a feature that allows you to take 3 shots automatically with the first shot an overall exposure, the second shot is underexposed and the third is overexposed. You can then decide which one looks better.
A tripod is good news on the longer exposures but can be a bit slow in setting up a shot. A monopod, especially when using a bigger zoom will steady things up and allow you more freedom of movement.

Now this one was taken again this morning & on auto but from 23feet away useing the 20x optical zoom. Im quite happy with the quality of the zoom Im sure putting it on the tripod would have helped more.

Great start mate. On the auto setting most cameras seem to overexpose in bright light and when taking close up shots of say flowers. The end result is that they burn off some detail. If this shot was a bit darker the detail would show up.

I normally correct this in post production with Photoshop or the like. A quick fix is to set the camera to underexpose usually an AV setting button.

I know the camera is new and it has a huge instruction book but make this the first thing you look up and find out how to do as it will effect most shots you take on the auto setting

Nice one, looking forward to seeing the results. A word of caution it has a very large tele lens on it which at the top end needs a lot of support otherwise you will get the dreaded camera shake

Hi Dodge, in many respects the answer to your question is possibly. Sony are fairly new to the camera market in respect of the brand leaders who have been producing high end cameras for over 40 years.

I would recommend both Canon and Nikon without hesitation as both brands have a reputation for producing exceptional cameras, even at the entry level.

As ever try a Sony out, explain what you want to achieve with the camera, both now and in the future and hopefully an informed sales person will give you the answers
