one of my first shots with a 400mm Canon FD converted to Pentax K-mount. Manual focus and aperture priority!

Really cool looking shot, you captured it very well even though it was flying. I really like that you were able to get this photo this sharp with minimal noise as most of these fast shots require high ISO numbers. Thanks for sharing this great shot!

Looks like you did a great job for the resources that you had, and although he's not entirely sharp and there's a bit of noise in the photo (actually I don't think that it's very bad personally) I think that you captured him in a very nice pose with his wings swept forward over the water, which is in itself very hard to do, so I really like this photo actually.

Great shot

An excellent shot! Nice to see the combination of Pentax with Canon lenses. There are not many 400mm options using Pentax manual focus glass that give this quality of results. Thanks for sharing.
