Update: I downloaded BirdNET software on my phone and analyzed it's chirping. It concluded that this fledgling is a California Towhee! My kids have affectionately named it Baby Towhee. :D

My wife was complaining about the birds chirping loudly around our house (she's not much into nature), only to find out this hatchling fell out of it's nest! Now we have all sorts of strange predators lurking around our house from feral cats, to weird possums! My daughter's been standing watch as it's guardian. I was thinking of raising the hatchling to be our family hunting bird, but I think it's a bit too small! Even though we live in Los Angeles, there's still some interesting urban wildlife where we live. ;)

As some diptychs have been seen already, I'll allow myself one also. Still into testing and comparing Fuji APSC and Panasonic MFT, I took these two images today, one with Fuji XE2 + 28mm f2.8 and the other with Panasonic G3 + M42 Vivitar 28mm f2.8... Can you tell which combo is behind which image?

I'm stumped. I can't tell which is which. And I spent some time staring at the side-by-side images.
But.....I will say - I like the right-hand one better.
However I'm not sure why - is it because of the rendering? the processing? the degree of contrast? the details? or maybe a little of 'all of the above'? Or some other random subjective unquantifiable reason? Dude, I don't know. But I'll still vote for the right-hand one as my favorite.
Which of course makes me all the more curious...as to which may be which? ;)

I'm going to guess that the Fuji is the photo on the right. The photo is clearly sharper, with greater contrast, than the photo on the left, which I would attribute to a better quality, more modern lens. The lower contrast, however, works to the advantage of the photo on the left, as the highlights are not burned out. The lower contrast may be a function of a slight change in light, and the difference in sharpness may be due to where the focusing point was placed, so I could be completely wrong (as I often am).

Cheers,

Antonio

Interesting, I like the left one better. Maybe the overall feel is more mysterious? Is that the vivitar?
