This scene was FAR away from me and I could barely see it with my naked eye. Photographed at Raha Beach in Abu Dhabi, UAE.

Taken: Sunday, 24th April, 2011
Focal length: 1600 mm
Shutter speed: 1/250 sec
Aperture:
ISO: 100
Notes: I took this shot with a Sigma 150-500mm f5-6.3 APO DG OS HSM lens with a 2x Canon Extender. On a 1.6x crop sensor, that gave me a focal length of 1600mm. I was very pleasantly surprised with the image quality in this high-contrast scenario. There was very little chroma aberrations and sharpness was great.
