Found these guys when I was out practicing with my new 70-300. Critiques and comments for improvement welcomed!
Thanks for the comments. I'll definitely try to get closer. I have a 1.4 tele and also a set of extension tubes. Otherwise, with the70-300 VR on my D200, about 3 1/2 feet seemed to be as close as I could be and still focus.Shooting dragonflies can be addictive. Those are very nice shots. My only personal point of view is that there is too much empty room in #1 and 4 that really doesn't add to the shot. Otherwise they are very good.
Thank you! They are fascinating! It's the NikonCafe "greats" that got me started!Nothing to be ashamed of, there good images like 1 and the last too, and yup there are some incredible DF shooters here, it's most humbling, have fun keep shooting:smile:
Just saw this. I was about to add my first ones that I actually went out looking for kinda.
I like #4 alot.
Thanks! I learn a lot just from seeing what others are able to accomplish!
Between great photos and Lens Lust, this Cafe has rejuvenated my photography!Torben is right, Dragon hunting can be addictive! Nice shots, #2 is my favorite.
I just got the 70-300 VR and am just learning how to use it! I need a lot of light because the lens is slow and seems to hunt for focus without bright light. Thanks for the suggestion regarding extension tubes.Doesn't the 70-300 have a limit to its' maximum reproduction ratio? My old one was 1:3 but I think that the newer ones are less than that. If so then add a compatable extension tube.
