Drats! I came here expecting a murder scene!
However, nice expression and composition.
Well, you don't know what he's looking at :lmao::lmao::lmao:
Thanks for the comments.
That narrow DOF is one reason why I like my longer lenses.
This was done handheld with Canon 7D/Sigma 100-300mm f/4 @ 378mm (2X Sigma TC)
1/3200 Sec @ f/10 ISO 500
I was shooting a green heron on the other side of the pond when this guy swooped in pretty close and started scolding me.
Any CA correction with software? It's a nice shot with no problems using a t/c it seems otherwise.
No, I usually don't have CA problems with this combination. The only PP here is a bit of noise reduction in Noiseware Pro, a little crop and sharpening in CS4.
Thanks. Although i just realised this at 189mm of the zoom range (giving 378mm). I've got 600 or 900 (using t/c on a 300mm) on the brain! sorry!! lol
Even at 600, I don't usually have CA issues. On the other hand, I don't really like the 2X because things get a bit soft as I go towards the far end. I dream of some day owning a real long lens (my dream is the Canon 500 f/4 L IS).
Here's one shot today at 600mm.
On my 5.6/300 tamron its ok but on my 5/300 hannimar with a 3xt/c its like a 3D movie (glasses not included) well maybe slight exaggeration! The heron shot is nicely taken but its soft yes.
A group of crows is a "murder".
But an actual murder scene would have been cool, too.
Now that's one I didn't know
