Large D3 Heron photo..........
first off that is probably the most enthusiastic response I have ever recieved for any photo I have ever posted here, for that I thank you.
I never claim my photos are better than anyone else's but I do think a photo is worth a thousand words and sometimes it is the best way to illustrate a point, my point here was I am well pleased with how well the tc14e works with the the d3 and 200-400afs.vr.
The photo is a crop, but the bird was very close and I actually have a series of three photos as it came into land!
Regents park in London is the best place I have found in twenty five years to get close to these normally timid birds.
At this time of year the action is virtually non stop !
I have included a small original image here to indicate the size of crop.
I have printed off an a4 version of the photo you commented on and the detail is quite stunning, I am sure it will easily go to A3 !
here are the settings for that photo.
D3 +200-400afs.vr +tc14E, 1/2500s @f7.1, Dynamic focus (51 points) VR on.
All the best
Hi and thanks for your comment.
I wish my results were always like this, I think being in the right place at the right time and having a reasonable command of your equipment helps !
On the day I took roughly 500 photos, I have about fifteen similar to the one posted here.
Many of the others I took I am well pleased with but on that occasion I wanted a full frame flight shot, so to get 15 with perfect focus and good composition from about forty of that subject is I suppose a pretty good result.
The 200-400 is a great lens and coupled with the zoom feature gives much better chance of getting a suitable composition, even with the bird flying toward you it is quite easy to zoom in or out as necessary.
With a subject of that size even with the Tc attached really fast AF is guaranteed.
