I got a number of shots of this beautiful bird today with the 135/2L withand without 1.4x extenderand so I decided to put together a portrait of the bird, with variations in exposure and other. No flash was used and I tried to keep the filesizes down to 700 pixels as opposed to my normal 800 postings. Hope that helps some. No flash was used and the body was the 300D

A touch of backlight

Takeoff underway



Darker exposure, richer color. I really liked the effect of this darker exposure on the red and white parts of the bird

I really love that last shot Norm. Just how did you achieve that effect. All of them are super shots though.

He looks like a missle on the take-off shot. Great series, Norm.

Nice captures. All a bit on the soft side though. Wouldn't think the 1.4 would effect the quality that much, at least it does not on my 300L. Did you just have some slow shutters?
