    Wanna see some detail?

    Whilst visiting "our" kestrel the other day taking photos, I decided to have a look at the detail of some of the shots. Here is one from that day:

    D800E + 300mm f2.8 VRII @ f5, 1/1250sec, ISO140 handheld minimal post processing

    Best viewed at maximum by clicking on the images



    Crop of above. If you look hard into the eye, you can see the clouds and possibly even me with a light coloured shirt on just to the left of the pupil.

    Looking real good Lance, your images never disappoint!

    Out of interest, where abouts are the good birding spots in Sydney? I'm down here for a few weeks and am contemplating heading out to the Royal National Park. I've also seen some Kestrels flying off the cliffs around Bronte but not in any frequent numbers for me to catch them.
    Cheers, Troy

    Incredible. It is however all about the Photographer wielding the tools so the credit is to you.
