Randy: Have you got one of them better beamers for your SB-800?. Dispite the noise I still think this is a great capture. And are you using the flash off camera(cord)?
i got your joke about noise...from the yellow jacket, hence the c/o (care of)
It's a great pic - it's nice to know that an ISO of 6400 is completely usable
Nice job - on the pic and the joke
awesome shot, randy
the noise at 6400
it still doesn't seem possible.... does it?
love this one
What lens and distance? Brilliant shot. We have a Red Tailed Hawk at our offices too, been giving him and our Osprey Clan a lot of snaps the past few weeks and none of mine are nearly as good.
The 18-200 is just too short (but the colors are awesome) and the 1982 era Vivitar 400 is just long enough (could be longer) but manual focus and horrid colors. I need a solid 400+mm option for under a grand =)
That is one heck of a great sports shot! You ought to try shooting some wildlife for a change.
Randy, I hope you are having a great summer and all is going your way. I love your grain!
pls explain how you did it....thx !
