These were shot at 840mm manual focus using 300 2.8 with stacked 1.4x and 2x. The last image is of Bethany Hamilton of Hawaii. For those that do not know, she lost her left arm in a shark attack, I think at the age of 13.

Very nice, Widowmaker. Does that make your lens F5.6 or F8? Very good exposures here and nice stop action!

Thanks...

The stack makes the lens an f8 although with them stacked the body only shows 5.6 @ 600mm, as if the 1.4x is not there. The image is still exposed correctly though. I handhold this but not something I would want to do all day. I can do either all day but together it does get a little heavy.

Amazing! These shots are great. I can't believe you handhold and manual focus these shots. They came out really sharp.
