  1. Knowing how we like to photograph birds, here are a couple of heavily cropped images of a Grey Heron taken in Tanzania during our trip to Africa. It looks a lot like the Great Blue Heron we normally see in the US. Im not sure if I like the cropped images:



    Somehow I think the originals are more interesting :wink: :
    D-100 70-200 AFS-VR +1.7TC @340mm

    D-70 80-400 VR @ 370mm

    Check out the little Hippo in this shot:
    D-100 70-200 AFS-VR +1.7TC @340mm

    Does anyone else think it looks like the Heron is surfing on the Hippo? :cool:

  2. Bob,
    the perspective and relationship of them uncropped is far better in my opinion.

  4. I like the uncropped. Cropped it looks like a good bird shot of a heron on an old oil drum add the Hippo and the pictures take on life :smile:

  5. Playing follow the leader, uncropped versions look much better :smile:
