Awesome images, thank you for sharing. Was wondering though what is up with the fur on the top of the tigers head?

Thank you very much for your nice comment, Pete!

Yes, number 2 was a lucky shot. Just saw the goat getting upset with the bird and the bird did a little hop and skip as I took the photo.

I think it is just the light filtering in from above.

Re: Some more D800 goodness x 12 images

Thanks alot you just cost me $6000, been thinking about the 300mm f2.8 to go along with my 70-200 f2.8 VRII . You have convinced me with your stunning shots. It'll take more then the lens to get me to your talent .
WOW isn't enough

Re: Some more D800 goodness x 12 images

WOW, great images.!!! VERY IMPRESIVE!!

a question for you if you dont mind: in some pics you used teleconverter. If you need more reach, why didn't you use the dx crop instead?

Re: Some more D800 goodness x 12 images

No words to describe how great your photos are.

Well Done!

Just wondering for your photos number 3,4,5,6, you indicated ISO6400, is really happening? where is the noise?

thanks!

You are so very kind!

The 300 f2.8 VRII was excellent on the D700 and D7000, but it SHINES on the D800 like nothing! Match it with the 1.4x TCII and you have a 420mm f4 which is still superb, look at some of the results I have obtained on these shots that I presented. In fact, I was taking shots of those little Blue Wrens in my photo set with my 500 f4 VR but they ventured so close that I ran into the minimum focus distance of the 500 which is 4mts, so I swapped out and put the 300 + 1.4x TC on which has a minimum focus distance of 2.2mts! To be quite honest, I can't really tell the IQ difference at close focus distances!

It's still best to use a TC over cropping in most instances. In some of these I still cropped even when I had the TC on!
