Slow shutter speed (relatively) of a chaffinch in flight.
I was in the hide with a competitive photographer and we were trying to see who could go slowest and still get a sharp shot. The optimum speed for me was around 1/80 to 1/100th sec.
This one was taken at 1/100th.
Challenges are good
This is an amazing image, i like the exposure,dof for this shot, nice work.
Well deserved prize.
Thanks timjnngs (I am presuming it is Tim, but..) for the UA, most appreciated.
Just a bit of fun really, pushing boundaries of my own photography. Much easier at 1/800th, but the sense of satisfaction with a sharp result at 1/100th is greatly intensified.
I did do some "normal" photography whilst away and will upload a few other the next month or so.
Superb in flight captured.
Sadly (though not for the recipient) I have given out my user award for this week. If I hadn't I would have given it to this.
You got it right Cheryl, it is flying is this Chaffinch !!!
You always impress me with your photography skill Cheryl, this is no exception
Lovely pin sharp eye, very nice presentation.
