    Hello,

    Was out early morning and got only one single such shot today. Here it is:

    original.gif

    The subject (pheasant hen) was backlit which gave me a nice effect.
    focal length: 500mm (300 + 1.7x TC)
    ISO 400
    f7.1
    1/160sec
    -1.0ev
    A slight crop was applied for the purpose of composition.

    I would be happy to see what you have to say about this shot.
    Thank you.

    Hi Richard,
    Thank you for taking the time to comment.
    The slow shutter speed 1/160sec combined with the wind made for the painted look. The grass and flowers around the subject have quite a bit of motion blur. I was shooting with the 300mm 2.8 + 1.7x TC

    Thank you Jeff.
    Glad you like it.
