BIF With DA200mm - quite a bit of cropping




I did not bring in my 300mmF:4. I did that with DA200mm with quite a bit of cropping this morning while it was taking off

Thanks for stopping by.
This shows the cropping done as I was pretty far away

Nice focus. I see the Blue Herons occasionally too.

You know.. your photo just demonstrated that you are a great bird shooter.. Like @sergysergy said "great panning". I believe people who crib about AF capabilities do not want to do this and somehow end up blaming the camera's AF capabilities.

@shardulm, you know what they say about a poor workman! @danielchtong has demonstrated nicely that there is nothing wrong with the kit in the right hands, great shot!

Thanks shardulm & Tekmongoose, for the positive comments. I come from an old background of only relying manual focus even for BIF images

Overall I think I did not push DA*200mm hard enough and majority of my many many BIF shots were done with A*300mm as shown here.

Why? 300mm is just longer and it (200mm) is short for long range shots. Also the newer dslr with reputedly better AF should help too. Maybe because I have been relying on manual focus and there has less need to upgrade AF dslr (the vintage K20D).

That is a great photo, with the heavy cropping! I especially like how you caught the wings, really a nice job!
