    Taken with a Canon 5DMKII, with a Canon 300f2.8 lens and a 2X tc.
    Handheld, AV mode, ev -1/3, shutters were around 1/1600 at iso 400.
    These are massive crops.
    They started out at 5600 pixels on the long side, and were cropped down to around 2000-2400 LS.
    Saved at 1200 x 800, and posted here at 800 LS.

    Fantastic, Fantastic Fantastic.

    All are amazing, but No. 2 from the first post is something else entirely - perfect.

    #2 is unreal! You even got the eagle with a fish in its talon! How cool! The detail and clarity of the ice is amazing! Nice stuff! Where were those shot?
