Re: Buzzard 2

Thanks Jonny, with the auto ISO selection at 6400 I think it was maxed out..? To make it any brighter would have required dropping the shutter speed and risking camera shake as it was a hand held attempt, all be it with VC on.

Buzzard 2

Thought I would post another couple from the last time I managed to capture the local buzzard... Were it not for the full frame and high pixel count capability of the D800 to allow me to crop, and of course some inexpert slider manipulation in PP it would have been just another one for the trash.......

Re: A few flyers and an artsy redition of a blown shot

Definitely an image to be proud of Jonny, it reflects the time and effort you put into your photography. The MOST important thing is that you are enjoying the process and that is reflected in the quality of your images. As for gear, although the D800 is not ideal for wildlife it is far more capable ...

Re: Buzzard

Thanks Rod, I have to admit that this bird lands most days maybe 15 meters from where I sit in the house, though if I make a move it generally spots me. No problem re you mistakenly attributing my pics of a couple of birds to Jonny, however Jonny captures far superior images than the one`s I posted ...

Interesting UK TV programme..?

If you are in the UK and have BBC iPlayer, you might like to beam up BBC channel four and look for Don McCullin: Looking for England. A renown photographer in his 80`s looking back at his photographic career and still out there capturing images.
