Taken yesterday afternoon. I also had a 1.4 extender on this but it doesn't record this if you are already are using a 2x. Taken from about 90 Metres. Just giving it a go with these settings...all advice/critique gratefully received. A skimmer and gimbal head were used and shot from an rspb hide. Its a cropped image with only about a third of it left so I've added a touch of vignette.

A little soft, but with a x1.4 PLUS a x2 extender on a 600mm (even at 1/640) I'm not surprised! Great shot!

Thanks all

No advice, no critique Brian, a wonderful shot taking everything into consideration, I know my Olympus would be hopeless at ISO 3200, if it had it, which it doesn't Smile
Rgds., Jim
