Panning attempt

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Chad Gladstone, Jun 21, 2005.

  1. Took this last year. Though I'd see what you serious birders think. The wing motion blur was deliberate, the blown highlights were not (didn't have time to switch to shutter priority or dial down the -EV - I just guessed in aperture priority that f/11 would land me in the ball park). Still, I think the effect looks pretty cool.

    Chad...this image may not be one that you may cherish, but I overlook the blown highlights to appreciate the composition and background. I still like it...now go shoot some more!!! :)

    Nice shot. like the effect a lot.

    You Chad some times blown highlights work. The Back ground really makes this a great shot.

    Nice job.
  6. Thanks, I really like the background motion as well, it really gives the viewer a sense that this is a really swift bird capable of falcon like speeds.
  7. What speed and camera did you use.

    I have been trying to get that effect with my D2x.

    I can do it with film every time, but having some trouble doing it with my D2x.

    This is a great image. I have achieved great results using f11 and f16. Wish I had time for more experimentation. I love movement.

    Job well done.
