File formats
I've been shooting for a while but I'm a relative newbie when it comes to post. I always shoot raw on images that are important but jpeg for snapshots. Over the years I would process raw in Photoshop CS2 and save in raw and the snaps would be processed in Irfanview, saved as jpeg. Recently I've been saving and posting on Facebookin png from Irfanview because it seems smoother. Does this sound ok? I've been hearing a lot of other formats on the Hog and wondering if I'm missing out on something better? Are there any benefits of other formats that I'm missing? Storage space is not an issue.

My big game hunting souvenir.
Dear Donald Junior:

I bet I had just as much fun hunting elephants in Africa as you did. I brought home wonderful souvenirs. I did not have to kill anything to do so....

Cats.....doing what they do best
The big cats of Africa share many behaviors with their distant domesticated cousins.
Siblings like to rub on each other.

Come running for dinner. This big boy caught scent of an Impala that a leopard had killed over a mile away.

Stalking. It doesn't take much grass to hide a leopard.

Lewin's Honeyeater (Australian Bird)
Been a while since I posted, so here goes....

The Lewin's Honeyeater inhabits the eastern coastal region of Australia. It is more common towards the south east where it feeds on flowering native blossoms by sipping nectar from the flowers when the vegetation is in bloom.

Several other honeyeaters look very similar, however the Lewin's can be distinguished from others by the unique crescent shape of the yellow feathers of it's ear patch.

This one was inspecting some Kangaroo Paw flowers.... so named as they somewhat resemble the front paws of the Kangaroo. The nectar of the Kangaroo Paws is a particular favourite of the Lewin's Honeyeater.

Oslo, Viking ship museum
Taken in Oslo this past September .Was struggling to take an image of the ship and a cool shadow . Unfortunately balcony outline is showing and when cropped depth is loss. Also delicate carving could be more in focus. Still decided to post, loved the lines of the viking ship...Nikon 7100, 10.5mm Nikkor fisheye; Nikkor 18-200...
