Eastern Water Dragon - A Missed Opportunity
Posted By: dosdan, 10-17-2008, 09:50 PM

Here are a couple of Australian Eastern Water Dragon shots I took at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens at 6:32am. I'm not that happy with either. The scene was not very colourful.

K20D Pentax-A 70-200/F4 @ 200mm FL & F8 1/180s ISO 400

I switched to portrait orientation for the 2nd shot. When processing I realised that the reflection could have added more interest to the shot (I had not noticed it while shooting) but I hadn't included the reflection of the head in the shot which spoils it.

As previous except 1/125s

Damn Brit

Looks like it was really bright as well Dan. You did pretty good nonetheless.

Gary, I realised the 2nd shot was a 1/2-stop faster than the 1st. Thanks for the encouragement.
