CommentThis is an old image that I reworked following a request for a hi-res version. Things have changed a bit since 2013 when I noticed I was still using Aperture Priority shooting mode and f/10!!! for the aperture setting. Today I would get much better results with full Manual exposure control and f/5.6 would be a more sensible choice of aperture. For AF point selection today I would use single point or 4-pt expansion.
EquipmentCanon 5DIII + 300 mm f/2.8 II + 1.4x III extender, hand-held.
Aperture priority, spot metering, AI Servo AF with 8-pt expansion, f/10, 1/2000 sec, ISO 1600.
Processed using DPP4 and PSE14 with Neat Image plug-in.
LocationOff Port Fairy (Victoria)
