    from 2014, a Razorbill at The Farne Islands, the pic was reprocessed using Dx0 and LR on a D4 ISO 1250 file. Lens was 80-400

    NIKON D4    ---    400mm    f/5.6    1/640s    ISO 1250

    Great shot, looks similar to a Cormorant.
  3. Wow - so sharp. I think I can see your reflection in the pupil of its eye!

    Fine detail and capture! To me the composition seems a bit awkward. Perhaps a bit more neck would balance the image.

    I agree on the crop. I can't go down unless I want to do a lot of cloning so I tried going up

    thanks Peter
    thanks buddy....this reminds me of how good the 80-400 is
  7. Nice closeup. The bird is a European (or Common) Shag, Phalacrocorax aristotelis, a species of Cormorant.
  8. My thoughts exactly. Killer detail too.
  9. Now that is one piece of work Randy, superb job and tack sharp.
  10. That one is a killer
  11. I agree with others - nice sharp details.

    Excellent details, Randy. Interesting why we all move on to the newest gear when you look at shots like this. Making me feel better that I'm still shooting my D4.
