From my walk today - an interesting Heron shot

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Kevin Scott, May 20, 2005.

  1. Had lots of fun with my 2 new friends (D2X & 300 f4 AFS) this morning. I don't think I've ever seen a GBH up in the tree like this. This was taken in HSC mode. I had lots of fun playing with that today, too. Trying to get ready for Merritt Island and all the big guns! :wink:

    I applied sharpening guidelines mentioned recently by Jean-Pierre to this photo. What do you think?

    Comments, feedback always welcome!

    Right, that is SUPER

    Your ready for Merritt...Now stop it.
     
  7. Thanks, Gordon! This means alot to me. I dropped my daughter off at school at 7:30 and came straight to this park. The morning light was wonderful and I found a few good specimens. I have some others of this same bird from from a different angle that I'll post later.

    I'm really happy with the 300. Frank was right in recommending it. Now to get a converter for a little more reach. :wink:
     
  8. Oh dear, Gale. I'm afraid I feel unworthy to shoot in the presence of some of you so the pressure is on me to perform. Just trying to brush up as quickly as I can so I don't get kicked out of the group.

    Really looking forward to meeting everyone and hope to get some Caracara, Eagle and Roseate shots. :wink:

    Excellentg. I love the composition. Great colors too.
     
  12. Are you kidding me? I'm enjoying the heck out of it. Trying to get used to no zoom. :wink: Having some lockup issues but not sure if it's the lens or the cam. Otherwise, no complaints.
     
  13. Thanks, Frank & Don! I was glad that I was up early and got to take advantage of the early morning light. I work hard at trying to compose the images following the rules. But, sometimes I still shoot dead center to quickly get the shot then worry about cropping later. This one wasn't that kind of shot. He sat there a good 30 minutes. :)
