lets make 800mm night...backlit fisherman
Posted By: imtheguy, 06-27-2009, 10:43 PM

lots of setting sun behind him as I sipped coffee in my den with the sliding patio door cracked just enough for the tripod mounted Rokinon 800mm reflex lens to get a clear view of the critter 80m away. I used burst mode at times so I have some WMV files of selected pics with slo-mo grabbing of fish and tossing them around before the big gulp. Here are 3 pics not from burst mode.

That is a very nice series Lee, I'm impressed with that mirror lens. Thanks for posting.

Nice shooting imtheguy, as much as the mirror lens can get half decent results i hope we don't make too many people consider it as they may not know what to expect after seeing our photos. it takes a lot of practice and post processing to get the best results
