First few shots posted from a lurker :)
Posted By: trinarn, 05-13-2008, 09:57 PM

I lurk around here a lot and in fact purchased a very nice M 50/1.7 a few months ago from here. I absolutely love coming to a photog board that is talking nothing about Pentax! I belong to a few other photog boards and I must say I am a bit tired of hearing Canon this and Nikon that

Anyway, here are a few shots I have taken over the last few weeks with a Tamron 70-200. I am a newbie to the world of SLR, so any critique is welcomed! Thanks for looking! The second one is a juvenile Bald Eagle shot at Stanley park in Vancouver, BC.

Both very good shots, nice and sharp. The colours in the turtle shot are excellent. I'm impressed you could get that close to the eagle with a 200mm lens. Very well done.

Actually, now that I think about it, the lens was at 300mm, but I was pretty darn close to it! At the end of the day I wondered if it was a smart thing to do, do eagles attack people? He could have so easily come after me, I was so close!

Glad to hear their are a lot of vancouverites around here!

Nice! I specially like the turtle, it's head right in front of the reflection of the white sign in the water is perfect.
