D200 + 80-400 VR + 1.4x TC @ 560mm, 800, 1/320, f5.6, fill flash (SB910 + Better Beamer)







D200 + 80-400 VR + 1.4x TC @ 560mm, 800, 1/250, f5.6, fill flash (SB910 + Better Beamer)

I found this duck sleeping in the shade with a bright sunny background. Getting low enough required me to work in an uncomfortable position so I had to open the aperture wide to get a fast enough shutter speed to be steady. Add some balanced flash and carful processing and we get to see the pretty feathers.

Comments and suggestions welcome,

Morris

Good looking shots Morris. Didn't know these guys had baleen! I guess their lifestyle benefits from a little straining.

Both are very nice Morris, but 2 has a slight edge for me ~ Ron

Certainly some more iridescence showing in the 2nd shot.. eye focus is a touch soft to me, but otherwise some decent shoveler shots! -Mike
