Hi Eldar.
It certainly tells the story, 840mm hand held at 1/500th, not bad!

Cheers Graham.

Thanks Graham,
The idea was to have a slow enough shutter speed to get the feeling of motion and splash, but keep his head sharp. Did not succeed completely, but still OK. Handheld is handheld ...

I went to the beach this morning with my 400mm + 1.4xIII, trying to catch some surfers. Came out great ;)

I occasionally see raptors flying high, usually too high for photos. I took the kestrel (middle) and buzzard (bottom) last weekend and the marsh harrier (top) last December. They are all 100% crops, with the birds occupying only 400-500x600-700 pixels, which gives an idea of how far away they were. All are hand-held using the 5DIII + f/2.8 300mm II + 2x TC III at f/5.6. 600mm and iso 640. (I saw them while walking around and could not have used a tripod).

5D III, 70D, Powershot SX50, 300/2.8 II, 1.4xTC III, 2xTC III, 70-200/4 IS, 24-105, 15-85, Sigma 10-20, Tamron 150-600.
