Though I confess I do like the Blueberry's....a remarkable shot, especially with 5,000 iso....which I would not have thought would be possible.

If you are up North...high dynamic range always....shoot RAW....but if necessary, crank up the iso....i prefer lower, but play around...spin that exposure compensation dial without fear or favor.


Thanks, Traveller. Are you up very early or very late? We're home from Alaska. I just didn't see a summer connection to either shot (I also suspect there are even better calving shots not yet reviewed/processed). As it is, the hungry eagle image is a bit forced. Maybe I'm too focused on the challenge's theme? I've happily gotten away with high ISO since buying my 80D. Maybe Topaz will help those shots look even better?
