Do I see a photographer in the reflection in the eye? - I think I do!
That eye is a very wide angle reflection... looks like sky and the outline of the hide

Wow! Can I ask what you're using for noise reduction? The detail seems high and the noise low for ISO 800.

It seems I can not stay away from this club
A few photos from this years Bighorn Rut, unfortunately Derek was not able to make it and there was very little headbanging.
My opinion on the D7100-300/2.8-1.4TC- Camera is backwards with weird menus but the lens combo works for me.
Post processing is also very different!
C&C is always welcome.

You are right about Nikon being backward. I had a D2X for awhile and it screwed my mind over trying to learn to shoot with it. Everything was done backward like attaching a lens, focusing direction, and even inserting the memory cards is backward. Nice in the hand though and sharp images as long as you didn't go past ISO 400. I wound up giving it to my brother who was a big Nikonista.

It's getting better and better. Nice series. What are major difference in PP?

Looks like very high ISO and heavy noise reduction. But the moment is very right!

dsport,

As a lens review it looks like a 10 for the DA 560.

That last image is awesome.

Thanks, indeed I wrote my review here with more pics.

If the pic is heavy cropped, I will do noise reduction. But these three pics have not undergone NR.
Thanks.

Yes. And a very long way off. I've been watching these loons and mergansers for the last week or so, usually in the morning. I had two occasions where mergansers got a decent size fish and swallowed it reasonably close in, but the light was low, I had the shutter speed slow. The fish wave back and forth quickly. I'm surprised I got anything out of this one. I kept the shutter speed high.

Travis: great shots. I saw on of Alistair's and you guys were right in the middle of them.

Yes! Nikon menu is a pain, it's like against common sense. Your results, however, are impressive. My favorite is that of making love with romantic background.

Just an example of domestic wildlife ( i admit it is a terrible misuse for a da*300 )

Very Funny! I got almost the same pic a while ago while trying the HDTC on the 250-600/5.6 !



Grande aigrette / Great Egret [Ardea alba]
by Curculion, on Flickr


dsport: Very Nice pictures ! Love them !
maybe I should trade my "heavy" lens with that one !

Thanks.
I also have the FA*250-600/5.6
Because of the light weight of DA560, I am planning to sell the FA* now.

This was a shot I wish I'd used my 60-250 on. That would've set me back a few minutes, having to run to the truck. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out though.
