A55 + 70-400 Heron in my garden
Oct 27, 2011

I've only had the lens a week and not had time to travel to find an interesting subject to try it out with. But this little dude, after my goldfish, regularly visits my small London garden, so he'll do for my first test.

Handheld, manual focus, jpeg and shutter priority (I think), slight unsharp mask applied in PS Elements.

The head shot was slightly cropped to get rid of excess background, the whole-bird shot not cropped at all.

One thing I've found; It's easier to find defects in other's shots than it is to get a good shot yourself.

comments and criticisms welcomed.
