    I was down on my mother-in-laws pier yesterday in the 10 degree coldness shooting water foul. I shot this using my Sigma 50-500mm lens. I wish I had a polarizer for this lens though the filter size is 86mm and very costly.

    P.S. Does anyone know how to upuload images directly to TPF if you are a paid member?

    EXIF: NIKON D200 1/20 sec f 6.3 500 mm

    when you are creating the thread, scroll down and you'll see a tab that says 'manage attachments'. click that and it should all fall into place. :)

    It's a nice composition, and a lovely colour to the water. It bothers me though that it is not sharp, and when the bird is full frame I prefer them detailed and sharp. I guess at that zoom the shutter speed wasn't quite fast enough for that.

    That being said, the effect the blur has in this shot is a sort of radial movement - looks like the goose was shaking himself :D

    Agreed. I would have liked a sharper foscus and as you said, my shutter speed was just not enough. The condition were less then ideal with 15 mph wind and 13 degrees outside. I used a timer but I guess wind and a telephoto length of 500mm do not make for a good combination.
