I decided to go down to our local wildlife sanctuary and take some bird shots. It was an overcast day but the birds were active so I had a blast. After returning home I was disappointed by how the photos turned out. They looked very muddy and lacked brightness and crisp color. I was shooting with my D40 and a 70-300mm VR lens w/UV filter. I was shooting in aperture priority f/5.6. Attached are a couple of shots to give an example.

First Photo Settings:
Shutter - 1/320 sec
Aperture - f/5.6
ISO - 200
EB - +1.0ev
Focal length - 300mm
White Bal - Auto
Metering - Pattern

Shutter - 1/2500 sec
Aperture - f/5.6
ISO - 400
EB - 0.0ev
Focal length - 300mm
White Bal - Auto
Metering - Pattern
