I did get the message and am still deciding if I want to invest the money in the K-Mount for the 500, even though I would really like to have it.

Thanks
Tom

Interesting even at f/8 how narrow the DOF is... with the right wing just slightly out of focus... gives a nice 3D effect, actually. How far away were you?

What processing to it did you do with CS2

And the one thing EXIF doesn't reveal.... what lens?

It was a PEF file that I only applied a slight bit of sharpening to in ACR, then a bit more USM in PS2, but very little. I tried Ben's method first, but it made the goose too contrasty and I liked this much better.

The lens was a FA* 300 and I was about 30 yards from the bird when it took off and I had SR on, hand held. It shows up in the metadata in my CS2 just fine.



I noticed the DOF also, and thought it made the flying bird less static without the actual blurr of the wings a slower shutter speed would show.

I am trying to catch back up on my forum reading. Tom, this is a really excellent shot. You did not specify which * 300mm lens you used. If this was manual focus, it is a really really excellent shot.
