I have enjoyed looking through your gallery. I am curious about how you pan with a 600 mm lens. Are you on a tripod or is the effective length 600mm. #8719712

A photograph of a wave taken around sunrise. A slow shutter speed and pan creates the lines in the water and the fluctuations of the water level picks up the color of the reflecting light with varying colors.
