Found these guys (Brants?) along the shore yesterday:


Midday lighting was rough - lots of shadows.



This outing has really made me appreciate the wonderful bird shots posted here. Not easy subjects at all - I'm in need of more practice!

So to the bird-masters of this forum we salute you!

Good captures there with the FZ1v2 but it has one thing that is noticeable in shots like these with it comes to water and fowl. Hot Spots. I first thought it was a problem with my camera but I have seen them in others just like yours. If it weren't for those darn Hot Spots.

I still love that FZ1v2 though. Looking forward to more of what you got to share.

Nice shots. I noticed the you shot at -2/3 EV and still had a few hot spots. Maybe a polarizer would help for this kind of situation.

That or an ND filter... or a combo of -2/3 + ND? I've only used the ND a couple times, and like the results.

I don't think a hood would knock down reflections. It's more for shielding the lens from the sun.

Had the stock hood on but no filters.........I'll have to try some filters next time I'm shooting on the water. Thanks for your comments and ideas!
