A particularly handsome chap! I like the border too. It adds a sense of definition but because it's the same colour, it is completely unobtrusive. Click. Ali Smile

Fabulous shot... you must be pleased with it. I have mixed reservations on borders but this is probably the best I've seen I think. Very unobtrusive and adds a great deal to the overall composition and feel of the shot. Kept the yellow head feathers exposed very well. I should imagine it was quite easy to blow the yellows out.Certainly EC material.

Pete_g, it's a 300f2.8 nikkor, tamron 2X & nikon 2X. Apart from the handling difficulty it doesn't do well with whites and/or highlights. I am not sure how to explain it and I have posted a sample photo in the 'mods'. Edges of higlights seems to have a 'halo' effect. Thanks for your comment.

Thanks to everyone for your comments as well, very much appreciated.

Lovely image, well deserved EC with the glassware involved.

Neil: if the nikon is anything like my Canon it will record the aperture the lens it is set at not the effective aperture of the combination so in this case the effective aperture would be f16 (f4 +4 stops)

Kev

Canon digital cameras record the both the 'set' and effective aperture if you look in to the EXIF. My comment was because it was stated that the image was shot at f/4 when clearly it wasn't and for the sake of non-experienced people, it needs to be explained in case they wonder why they can't do the same thing Wink

In any event, regardless of the EXIF info, the person shooting would surely know it wasn't being shot at f/4 - I would hope so anyway Smile

Neil, some things are silently understood by many including yourself. Didn't think I needed to go in-depth with the aperture mathematics, or the the 1.5X focal length multiplication for digital SLR. It will become repetitive, if you follow.

Example:-
Techies' Bits
300mm (effectively 450mm)+ 2X + 2X (total 1200mm, effectively 1800mm) @ 1/320 f4 (effectively f16, f4X2X2) ISO-400 full frame (cropped to fit 6:4.5 format).
