One more aquatic bird (Neotropic Cormorant) from a reservoir near the savannah.


Neotropic Cormorant with Nikkor 800mm f/5.6 EDIF by labecoaves, on Flickr

D7000 + 800mm f/5.6 ais EDIF + Circular Polarizer filter + tripod.
ISO 320, f/8 at 1/200s.
Here these cormorants are aware of humans, so it was necessary to crop the image around 50%, since the bird was at more than 30m.

Jose, I'm not sure how you do it, but I've shot black and white birds in those situations, and to get the exposures you do is awfully hard. And to top it off you are manually focusing a very long lens. I've shot with the Sigma AF lens that goes to 800MM and that is no easy feat.

Thanks Matt.
I use mostly center weigh or spot metering on the subject. As for the focusing, I have relied almost always in the focus confirmation green dot of the camera (when the tele is naked) or in my old eyeswhen a TC is added (with TCs normally the dot is inacurate).

Yep - that's it. Say - that guy has two fingers instead of just one as seems to be the norm around there . . . .

Yes Jose your images are just consistently excellent.

Well, you all are probably tired of the high altitude mountain shots (though I have more) so now how about some elevation zero shots along the North shore of the Olympic Peninsula courtesy of the 105/2.5 and 16/3.5.

Exif may not be correct on some.

Gotta get all these out of my system before bed . . now for some around the campground images.

EXIF wrong on the last one - Should be 105/2.5 at f/2.5 and like 1/100 sec.

Great shots Philippe but #3 is great+
Great shots John

We went to a Reds game today and I caught a ball(but not a real one) for my daughter I should have brought the 200mm f4. The 135mm f2 isn't long enough.

135mm f2.0. Last pitch of the game.












24mm f2.8. We won.

Wow, several pages since my last visit.

Roberto, lovely flower with the black background. Did you use point metering?


Thank you, it's not a very sophisticated method but I just bracket manually (the flash power) and check the result (histogram and burned highlights) on the camera display.

Excellent set John, I really like "My Girls Off To Low Tide" and "Stairway Up From The Beach".

Some awesome images lately guys. Not much from me as I injured my neck a few weeks back. Decided to edit some old snaps ... Some of these may have been posted before. Really enjoying the B&W conversions so I thought I'd try a few myself.

Great set Dean. I especially like #5 and # 7. It seems that a narrative is going on.

Sorry to hear you hurt your neck. Best wishes for a speedy recovery.

Dean, now that's an awesome set! Street-photography the classical, honorable way. Your B&W-conversions are top notch - really film-like. Hope your neck will heal soon.

Philippe, #3 is really outstanding.

John, very nice series - I like "hazy sunset" the most.

Monty, great snaps (snapshots in the best sense)!

Jose, fantastic work! The water at the Egret-shot seems to flow if I look long enough at this picture - pure magic!
The growing cormorant-population is discussed highly controversial over here - small fisheries have massive losses caused by cormorants.


Scott, Jose, Monty, Leighton, Philippe, Ray, John, Curtis - thanks a bunch for your kind comments!
