    Well I have hardly had a moment to really try out my 70-200mm (been packing) but here is one shot I did get that I am very please with:

    f2.8, ISO 200, 1/1600sec

    Taken from outside the cage (so wire already lost through f2.8:)) and against a dark cage background - outside but well in the shade. Thus I was able to boost the blacks to get the lowkey effect :)


    comments and crits welcome - thanks

    Very nice detail. Looks like he's watching you out of the corner of his pidgeon eye :)
