    Went out for a walk yesterday, came across this goose in canal showing me its beautiful bottom. Can't resist to take a shot.

    Picture taken with Canon 70-200 f4 is lens at ISO 800, f4, 1/200sec, 200mm. Subject is about 4 meter away. Picture is heavily crop.

    I used to shot picture with 2 stop exposure compensation for brightest highlights at spot metering and get good details in the highlights. But was always curious about why my camera provide exposure compensation from -3 to +3. This is bugging me for a while now and finally I'm brave enough to take a picture with my exposure compensation crank up to +3. Histogram in camera showed that not highlights are lost but in reality details on the wings are a little bit lost.

    Any C&C are welcome.

    That shot has a huge dynamic range. I think you did very well under the circumstance.

    Nicely done, this is a tricky shot to not blow the highlights out of, and you did a very good job.

    Hmm.. looks like majority liked it. May be I'm overacted on my exposure on this one.
