Splish splash

Uploaded: December 03, 2010


f4.5, 1/800th sec., ISO 400. This guy was really making the water splash. I liked how the water droplets look, his head and beak are nicely focused and the rest of him in fullshaking mode.

Exif: F Number: 4.8, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/800 seconds, Flash: did not fire., ISO: 200, White balance: Manual white balance, FocalLength: 210.00 mm, Model: NIKON D300

Hi Gary;
The action in this image is awesome. I also enjoy the way the dark water surrounds this light colored bird. Those droplets are pretty wonderful, too.
