    ... captured with my D2X @800 ISO and a 2000 mm lens. So be it.

  2. I love the diffused qualities of this shot, is this the 2000mm Reflex lens?

    Reflex Nikkor 1000 + TC-301 = 2000 mm.

  5. OK I'm curious, have you ever tried the 2000mm relfex? And if ýes what did you think of it?
     
  6. Bjorn, that is a pretty interesting shot you have there. 2000mm is longer than most of us will ever shoot.

    Bjorn,

    Welcome back :>)))

    Well looks like a swanny trying to get away from that bazooka staring at him..

    Very interesting.

    Are you sure that is the hubble telescope. I had claims on that you know.

    Thanks for sharing.

    They don't show donuts at infinity, and I suspect your targets are pretty close to that far away Paul. Hypered film is nice stuff. I've always wanted to shoot b&w through an old Schmitt. Maybe like the 48". Those make the most lovely images of star fields that I have ever seen.

    Bjorn I have the utmost respect for you & your work, but

    that pic is just plain wierd. I don't get it. Where's the bird? As "Shultz" from Hogan's Heros would say: "I SEE NO--THING!"
     
  12. As I strive to capture sharp pics of birdies, I find this example rather refreshing! Very clever Bjørn!

    A straight-forward approach may or may not work for a given application. In this case, with this Mute Swan, I secured a few shots of the nestlings and their watchful mother cruising close by, then went off to do more entertaining stuff. I'm in the process of collecting material for a joint photo/rock presentation later this Autumn and there I need more "fleeting" images.

    So many clever people can do all these amazing tack-sharp shots of birds and I won't interfere with their endeavours. I have my way and let them have theirs.
