May day

Uploaded: November 09, 2012


ISO 100, 1/30th, f13...I liked the shot because I got the skimmers vertically centered (I scaled it a little), the sense of speed with the pan and the detail of the birds (you can see the eye on one bird and the definition of all the birds' wing feathers and bills.) I also liked the comp with the vegetation above and reflections of the birds on the water. Hopefully there is enough definition to get an EFP.

Exif: F Number: 14, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/30 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 100, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 300.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS 5D
