So I guess one really should use a tripod with TS for optimal results. How would one work as a walkabout lens?
It works fine if you don't mind manual focus -- they're also a bit bulkier/heavier than non TS lenses. Shifts can also be done handheld and tilts for miniature effects too. It's when you need to precisely aline the focal plane with live view precisely that tripods are necessary.
Tilt-shifts can work fine without a tripod. I use the setting on my 5D3 that allows me to see leveling info in the viewfinder by pressing one of the AF buttons. Before I do that I verify focus using Live View. The following shots were taken with a TS hand held.OK, great to hear. They're nice shots.

Edward, duuh I guess I could have though of that. Fabulous shots on your web site.Click on image for full sizeFabulously sharp and great colours, I assume you had plenty of light. Would you mind sharing the EXIF data and which equipment you used please?

Willets, Western variety, at Cherry Creek State Park:Great shots, I think the first two really do it for me. I think its the colours that I like, and thats spoilt a bit by the sand at the bottom of the third one. But please don't take that as criticism.

Make sure you take a macro Ken, then you can get some real close up shots...........Apparently you just need to stare them down. I've heard.jrista.....by the power not vested in me, you are hearby awarded the photographers Purple Star for injuries sustained in the line of dutyI would like to wade and make my way through all that stuff to get the shot but I'm always worried about these...
I think this would make a cool thread..."What I had to go through to get the shot"
I saw one grab a huge Great Blue Heron a few weeks back and in one fell swoop, it was gone!

The common grackle with an uncommon attitude.Probably tired of being called "Common"! He looks ready to pounce. Nice shot.
Krob78, Mr. Otter, Barrfly, digital paradise and all you other photogs....very beautiful and inspiring shots. Looking at your work keeps me interested in pursuing this hobby and trying to make photographs like you canI'm jealous that you can get so close, our local Herons will fly off when I'm about 50 meters away. I think the last three are overexposed, how díd you meter? I just got a better beamer and have yet to use it outside, so I'm not sure how to advise yet, if at all. I would have thought spot metering on the white of the bird and the automatic should take care of the rest, I assume its just normal fill-in flash techniques.
Some I took at dusk today in my yard. This young heron has been coming around for about a month when I feed the fish in the canal, but he was never able to catch a fish in several dozen tries....until now. This tilapia was large and it took him several minutes to finally swallow.
Taken with a 7D and 100-400mm L @ 400mm. Almost dusk and was very overcast (started to rain as I took the last shot), so I used a 580 on camera flash with a better beamer. I am a total noob when it comes to flash since I never use it and haven't yet learned. I think these were overexposed and so I had to try and fix it with DPP. Constructive advice welcome. Thanks.
It doesn't look to be "from time to time". Keep them coming.Indeed! My girlfriend doesn't appreciate the smell of my hair particularly but I come home with some decent images from time to time!Osprey~ f/9 - 1/800 sec - ISO 200Ken, I assume you've been using the old trick?
#2: f/11 1/1600 sec - ISO 1250
You know, the old fish on your head and then keep very still....
