Lens: DA-300 Camera: K200D Photo Location: C&O Canal ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/125s Aperture: F8

I'd be interested in you comments. these are a new series of heron images (this afternoon). While I was close, the low light level ready pushed the camera to its limit. I was also trying some new PE tricks to compensate for the slow shutter speed. Watch do ya think?

I think those look really good, especially for 800 iso.

Look detailed and colorful, especially #2 where the body feathers are most interesting. I question however using f8 on the da300 if low light was an issue and a little blur on the background would only help. Knowing that f5.6 is as sharp (with my copy) as f8, why not pick up the stop for speed or lower iso? Maybe I just plain misunderstood the meaning of your PE experiment. Thanks for humoring me with an answer.

Good results - I too would have opened the aperture up at least a stop to isolate the subject, but these are sharp and well framed - #3 is a good one.

I tend to agree. Given the time afforded by the subject I probly should have used f5.6. Next time for sure. I do believe that there is a noticable difference betwx f8 and f5,6 on my copy. Bottonline need to go back and try again

On Heron shots I do I shoot in the 4.0 to 4.5 range at about 400-500 iso to get as much shutter speed as I can. Good luck. JIM
