Nothing to apologize. They are nice shots. From your Sigma 500mm? How far you were away?

Why would you apologize for their quality? They look really fine to me.



Great series.

Thank you Daniel. These were between 10 and 20 feet with the Bigma at between 300 and 500mm focal length.

No need to apologize for greatness, dawg...

The bokeh on that lens is quite remarkable! Good job focusing on the eyes at such a distant focal range!

A real great series Dawg,

shows how great a lens the Bigma is, in the hands of someone who knows how to use it.
