In the shadow
Lens: Super Takumar 300mm Camera: KP Photo Location: Robbins, NC ISO: 1000 Shutter Speed: 1/500s Aperture: F8 
Posted By: mahanpots, 3 Days Ago

I surprised myself getting this creature in focus with my old Takumar 300mm. He was just in the shadow of the extreme afternoon sunlight at the edge of a small lake. I actually overexposed and tweaked the settings in ACR, then Photoshop, to arrive at this picture. In spite of its shortcomings, I still love this lens.
