    Ok, a few more pics with the Seramas and wagon wheel. Help me pick the best, or I'll keep trying [​IMG]

    I like # 1 even though my boy in the foreground is not profiled.

    1, because the chickens stand out more than the the grass in the background behind the fence. In all the others, the chickens are too dark or in the shade.

    I know [​IMG] Evening time has not been best for that angle. Maybe I'll try again over the weekend, during the day.

    I also kinda like this shot:

    Lighting is tough outside unless it's overcast or when the sun is behind you. Every time I try to get shots in my run, the background is too light unless I try in the late afternoons (when it's too hot and everyone is standing wings out and open mouthed). They also won't sit still if I try to bring in extra lights and reflectors. :gig

    I was trying to get a decent picture of Sue, but he avoids me and goes straight to the opposite side of the run. To get a good shot I'll probably need to try at night like you did WV, good idea.
