    I attended a historical reenactment today. Unfortunately it slipped my mind, and I didn't have a flash which would have helped with both images, plus I didn't have my 16-35mm with me.

    When taking portraits, I've heard how green grass can be reflected up onto people so it's a good idea to use modifiers to help prevent it. Unfortunately I didn't have a flash with me, and quite honestly I wouldn't have even thought about it. Imagine my surprise when I chose this image as my favorite and saw the color cast. The first is a straight out of camera jpeg only resized for the forum.

    I spent time with the adjustment brush in Camera RAW to tone down the green.

    In the following image, there wasn't any type of light used other than what came in through the window and the open door. The green and mauve tints really surprised me as the room didn't look this way in person. The 16-35mm would have been helpful here since the room was really small; however, I didn't realize this log cabin would be open. Usually it's only available with guided tours (which they were doing but I didn't know ahead of time).

    Once again I made use of the adjustment brush in Camera RAW. I want to go back and darken the face/body of the woman in the middle. Unfortunately my hard drive is full. There was less than 1GB RAM while I was working in Photoshop - and it got to the point where I couldn't edit any additional images. So this edit is it for now.

    One thing I had to do was to uncheck the lens profile. When it was checked, the image was stretched on both sides making the two women appear noticeably too wide.

    I am still testing out my 300mm f/4 PF. However, this time I chose to use the shutter button for focusing and also set the body for AF-S instead of AF-C. This way the camera shouldn't take any out of focus images. Sure enough, everything was reasonably sharp. But I still notice the focus point that is illuminated on my rear screen isn't always on top of my subject. That's because the image shifts just when the shutter is actuated causing the focus point to be partially or completely off the subject. But since I was in AF-S, the focus didn't move.

    Goldfinch that landed on the tree to the left of the first bench after I took some pics of the bench. Cropped somewhat.

    Not sure what the following insect is although I've photographed these before. It landed there while I was taking pics. In its usual fashion, after a short period of time, it flew up and circled back around then landed on the branch again. Cropped quite a bit.

    Dragonfly - also cropped quite a bit.
