Motif No.1 and BIF
Posted By: Keltech, 02-26-2009, 01:23 PM

All the photos were taken with a K100D and a newly acquired Tokina AT-X 8
80-400mm 4.5/5.6 lens.

Motif No.1
This Lobster Shack in Rockport, Massachusetts is famous, as artists have come here to paint this scene since it was built in 1840. The American artist John Buckley used it as his studio in the 1930's.
The shack was destroyed during the blizzard of 1978 and this exact replica was built to replace it.
80mm, f16, 1/750”, ISO400, AP mode


400mm, f6.7, 1/4000”, ISO 400, AP mode


400mm, f6.7, 1/4000”, ISO 400, AP mode


400mm, f6.7, 1/4000”, ISO 400, AP mode



400mm, f6.7, 1/3000”, ISO 400, AP mode

BIF photos were all 67% crops. I am pleased with the color rendition and sharpness of the lens.

C&C welcome

Great shots. You have to do yourself a favour and make them little larger.

Heinrich,
None of them are the same bird. Shots were not taken in burst mode but one at a time with spot metering.
Thanks for looking and commenting.

JMR,
I tried using full size in Flicker and the pictures were too large. Perhaps I need to downsize the shots in PS and then post to Flicker as Large. I'm new at this, what do you recommend?
Thank you for your suggestion and comments.

Would like to help, but I myself never post from other sites. Perhaps someone will chime in here.

These are some stunning shots but it needs to be larger. To do that in Flickr, you go to 'all sizes' and post the 'large' size image. Original will be too large and it looks like you have posted the 'medium'imgae, which IMO is too small. Hope this helps.

Lou,

I post all of my photos from flickr. I resize the image I want to post with the largest side dimension being 800 pixels and let the software determine the smaller side. Then I "save as a copy" in PS or PSP X2 with a new name and do not save the changes to the original image. The copy is uploaded to flickr and that is what I put in my thread.

Hope this helps. If you need further expanation, send me a PM.

pcarfan,

Thanks for your comments. I tried the large size image and it was to large.

Great boat yard shot mate, I dislike seagulls But the reflection in that last shot takes my mind away from the type of bird it is

Taff,

At this time of year when it's 18f outside I shoot at whatever is flying. I was actually looking for eagles but the one I saw was out of range.

Thanks for looking and commenting
