Not the most exciting - but hey, no one else had posted anything...

Taken this morning in Knole Park, Sevenoaks, UK, whilst walking the dog.

300mm at f4, 1/640 sec, ISO 160.

Daylight WB, Camera Landscape picture profile, "Punch", a vignette and "Strong contrast" in post.

Feel free to critique - e.g. maybe processing is a bit overdone...?

Cheers,

Pete

Re: Winter Loon........

Very nice.  I particularly like the eye.  Loons in the UK tend to be called Nigel and have eyes that swivel.

Thanks, Gytramr.  If you have any, would love to see some of your shots (and Redring’s), even if they’re just grab shots like mine.

Ask, and you shall receive I've put a few swan and moose photos in my gallery. Those are from Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge, relatively near where I live in Spokane Valley, WA. Mine are "semi-deliberate" but still opportunistic, and I'm still learning the nuances of my first DSLR and the (relatively) big Tamron 150-600 G2 lens. I hope to add to the collection over time - love taking critter pics!

Great photo. I love leopards. I would have expected less noise at ISO1600 though (especially evident when I viewed original size) - was it heavily sharpened ?

Steve, these were taken in lower Michigan outside of Ceresco. The surrounding area is noted for the migration route of the Sandhill Cranes. We have had a warm and extended fall, there still is a lot in the area.

A bird sanctuary called the Bernard W. Baker Sanctuary is a local favorite. They host a annual Crane Fest.

I also have a blog that is mostly dedicated to wildlife photography. I have a post about the morning shoot if your interested.

Apologies for the late reply - have been away on business and couldn't work out out to view your gallery from my phone.  Love the first one especially.  Cheers!
