I'm constantly finding myself looking for things to photograph and birds give me an easy target most of the time. Going through my libraries of images, I find that I have a ton of great shots, but no use for them. So I figured why not start a topic and keep it going like the sunrise photoblog!


Post up your best images!

Just picked up a new long lens last week and was excited to try it out. I'm pretty happy with the results, but like anything, the more I use it, hopefully the more proficient I'll be.

Comments welcome.

Big difference from the tamron to that bigma. Some people swear by it. Your images are certainly improving, huge difference in quality from last year. I can honestly see the change. Are you using a tripod or mostly handheld stuff?

I just bought Canon's 100-400L and have only used it a handful of times so far. Can't wait to get out and chase some tailers with it! I'll tell you this though, at F7.1 or F8 and 400mm, it's sharp as a tack. My last lens was sharp at around 250\260 but would soften slightly at 300mm. Not the same concerns with the new lens. Those redfish in the grad don't stand a chance!

Ricky, I do mostly handheld. Most of the time my pictures are things that I just happen upon and don't have time to set up a tripod, however, I keep it in the trunk. I am wanting a L series, but haven't had the spare money. The Tamron is a great lens, but any of them tend to get soft or fuzzy at the outer zoom limits. I like the Tamron for sunrise/ sunset pictures because I have a circular polarized filter for it.

Right there is the biggest part of taking good outdoor pictures: being in the right place at the right time! Nice job.
