The Blogging Marathon: Options

It's easier when you only have a handful of choices...

I have spent most of my time on the foothill of Mt. Kinabalu photographing and observing the Eyebrowed Jungle-Flycatcher.

As I was going to update my blog, I realized the flycatcher didn't only demanded more time and space for them in Kinabalu National Park. They are now dictating time and space on my computer!

They consumes plenty of space in my disks and even more time editing them. Shot in RAW, when I said editing, I meant converting them to Jpegs. Except cropping and adjusting lights, I rarely move the other sliders...

Eventually, I have a hard time choosing a photograph and having something to blog about of course!

It's not that I don't appreciate them ( I love every single shots!), they are not just another flycatchers... mind you they're endemics and uncommon.

However, maybe it's a little bit easier when choices are scarce...as reflected by a photo of another uncommon Bornean Subspecies below- the White-browed Shortwing. Undesirable image quality, but yet...you'll get the idea...

Beautiful pictures of endemic Flycatchers species.

I am facing the same problem with big RAW files, each files produced by 50D can be 17-25 MB in size.

Love the way the Yellow-Breaster Warbler is looking into the camera! Great photo!

LOL Jordan, I guess they can live every where even on your computer. The first photo is just surreal, job well done. Anna :)
