A few Mergansers in flight.

Horned grebe I think.

    I've got a couple of questions ...

    Can you think of any reason (editing, uploading, etc.) why the EXIF info would show up in your first picture (DSC_5366crop.JPG) and not the last three (DSC_....crop.jpg)?
    File Name                       : DSC_5366crop.JPG
    Camera Model {0x0110}           : NIKON D7000
    Software / Firmware Version     : PaintShop Pro 14.00
    Exposure Time                   : 1/3200 second
    Lens F-Number                   : ƒ/8
    Exposure Program                : Aperture-priority AE
    ISO Speed Ratings               : 320
    Metering Mode                   : center weighted average (2)
    Focal Length                    : 300 mm

    I'm guessing here, but it looks like PSPro left the Exif Image Width/Height intact (4928x3264 verses 1800x1200). Are you using the medium file size setting on your D7000 and if so do you ever use the large file setting?

    I tried setting the D7100 file size at medium several days ago and seemed to get better results with the way I'm use to editing shots.

    File Name                       : D71_0457.jpg
    Camera Model Name               : NIKON D7100
    Software                        : Adobe Photoshop CS4 Windows
    Exposure Time                   : 1/500
    F Number                        : ƒ/5.6
    Exposure Program                : Aperture-priority AE
    ISO                             : 400
    Metering Mode                   : Multi-segment
    Focal Length                    : 280.0 mm

    Thanks for the shots and the info,

    #1 is great catching it on the wing like you did...

    #4 well, i'm always a sucker for a good B&W but being a sailor, the classic lines of that schooner is beautiful...

    Not sure what would cause that to happen Darrell, my workflow is the same on all of them. Maybe a bug in the forum software that impacts multiple uploaded images in a single post? I normally shoot RAW and Large Fine unless I accidentally change that setting when fiddling with the dials.

    I've uploaded #2 again to see if the exif is present.

    Thanks Mac. I took another stab at image 1 due to the jagginess. I think this is better.

    The boat would have looked better if the fog had been thicker to soften it a bit but then I would have lost the background completely. Here's another one that I didn't like as much.

    Re: Here's another one

    I like pictures that tell a story. They modivate me to look more closely and give my imagination new / old ground to roam. The "crusty" live aboard look and the "his and her's" dinghies on the last picture hint at an interesting tale.

    Re: uploaded #2 again

    The exif stayed with your second stab at #1 and is still absent on the second upload of #2. One difference is that #1 has the JPG file extension in upper case and the rest are lower case. It could be that simple. Some of Menzies forum hosted shots have upper case extensions and the exif intact. NBD - it just helps sometimes to see what settings someone was shooting at to get "that shot".

    Sorry for going off on a tangent ~ thanks again,

    Interesting observation regarding the case of the extension. I checked my folder and all files are shown in upper case as far as ext goes.

    All shots were with my 300 f4 in aperture priority but ISO, aperture and exposure would vary.
