Boy are those pictures sharp. Just beautiful.

What equipment did you use along with f-stop/shutter speed?

Thanks, these were all taken with a canon 30D 70-200 F 4 L lens (non IS) , some with and some without the EF 1X4 TC attached. All are hand held shots. For some reason the resizing cause's loss of the exif data but I keep the originals for that info.



#1 ISO 200 F8 1/2000 at 260m



#2 ISO 500 F8 1/3200 at 280m



#3 ISO 200 F 6.3 1/800 at 76m



#4 ISO 400 F 7.1 1/800 at 280m

#5 ISO 400 F8 1/2000 at 280m



#6 ISO 100 F 5.6 1/1000 at 200m

#3 ISO 200 F 6.3 1/800 at 76m
Third pic (eye's profile) :

I am a beginner, and I fail to understand how you can obtain so much light at such a speed with such low iso at 6.3..

How do you do that Alady40 ? Where does the light magically come from ? Is the sun right behind you ? Or is the lens just THAT good ? :|

I thought my Raptor pics were sharp - but yours are as sharp as the bird!



Congrats on beautiful pics.

LOL, lens is very sharp, sun behind but to my left. A lot of this is in the editing. I shoot raw and do a fair bit of tweaking and worked on the eye of the bird alone to bring up the brightness.
