Nice camera ... and borrowed a very nice lens ... and I still suck at this.
Anyway, just messing with the lens ... and I can see where this shot could have been way nicer.
The bokeh was deliberate and I like how it came out. Gonna play with that a bit more. That's one of the slats to that awful plastic "Dallas" looking fence in my front pasture. I guess it's good for something after all.
Tonight, I was talking to Mitch on the phone, but dropped him like a hot potato when I saw not one but both hawks hanging out in the trees across the street. Ran in for my camera, and wished I could have found some actual talent along the way, but alas, I didn't.
Here's one of the hawks. Not sure if this is the male or the female.
That tree is quite a distance from me, and I would never have gotten that shot with my own lens. Thanks Kirk!
And this is the other ... much larger ... hawk.
As if you couldn't tell, I messed with the lighting a bit, so that messed with the color a bit.
And here is where my glaring lack of talent comes in. I have no idea how to set the camera for when the sun is setting, but the sky is still pretty bright, yet still get detail. So here's a couple of very cool looking silhouette shots.
As you can see, this one is screaming, and it did quite a bit of that. I'm not sure why. I haven't seen the fledglings yet, but I am wondering if that had something to do with it.
Off to bed.
