Sorry Martin, but I need to straighten out a few things with this picture.
The Max Aperture of your lens is: f/4.5 not f/5.7?
Seeing as you took the pic at 500sec, why is it lacking detail?
I would presume it is caused by you using 1600 ASA?
As it was a fine day, you would have had a much better result using 100 ASA and dropping your speed to 60 sec - 125 sec.
Hope you are not offended by my putting my thoughts forward. Blush
They are, without knowing the amount of light when you took the picture?

Regards,
Keith.

I like your photo and I guess you do too, so don't worry too much about the tech crits especially when it's clearly not your doing!!

You were fortunate to get the otter posing - as I understand it,
otters are shy creatures.

Oooooh! Sorry, to all of you. Just trying to help to produce a better picture?
Sad you see my remarks as criticism, I was giving my limited advice?
Is the steering wheel and gear shift in your cars, techy stuff? Hope not!
It's cool, I won't make anymore comments. Enjoy your photography. Wink
