Love the fully expanded wings. Very nice Somlu.

Not as good as your, but kinda similar shot  :)


Very well done. Like an airplane. Love it.

Young Forster's Tern taking a bath at low tide. - From kayak on Martha's Vineyard.

60D - 100-400mm @390mm, ISO 100, f/6.3, 1,000th


This is so great if you can take a shot on the same level as the bird or animal. It makes it special like coming real close. Reminds me of this tv nature program where they put a camera on the bird....it is amazing like you're flying with them.

To the Dynamic Range hunters just a small hint... the advantage of Nikon is only on the lower ISOs. If you need high ISO for sportsphotography or birds, the Canon is equal around ISO 800 with even better results on the higher ones.



Most people forget this, blame Canon but shoot with ISO1600 on a wedding.


Interesting. But a 6D for sports and BIF photography is really challenging.
A comparison with the 5D MKII or 1DX would be more logical....would it not?

Thanks Guys for your comments, one more for the road, taken in the garden. Blue Tit for those who want to know.


I like it. Did you use the 300 or the 70-200 with ext or without?

The northern bald ibis, hermit ibis, or waldrapp (Geronticus eremita)

very nice - I had to look this bird up. Apparently not many left in the world.


Thanks. You are correct. This one can be found in a Zoo

I have started to explore a bit with street photography this summer. Like the shorty forty a lot for that and because of its size its no effort to carry your camera along. On some occasions it's slightly narrow for street, so will be looking at a 35mm soon (likely the f2 IS).


5D3 with shorty forty @f/2.8, ISO800, 1/5000, natural light, desaturated and vignette added in post. My wife was the model here :)


Very nice! I Like the framing and composition. Also the lighting. Well done
