Looks pretty good Jon, with focus being reasonably sharp on the eye.

Jon, the picture isn't showing. Something wrong with your hosting website?
-edit- and there it is again.

@jon7chow: I like the picture. The "rules" say that you should have an animal or person always look into the frame, rather than out of it, but in this case not following these rules created a very nice shot. well done and shows that these rules are there to be broken. Technically you shot wide open at 70 mm according to the exif. You can get a bit more sharpnes from the kitlens if you stop to 7.1 or 8 and the feather detail might have come out even sharper.

welcome to dyxum mastercastr, a very nice bif which must have been hard to take given the harsh contrasts, but you did well!
When you want to post a picture you need to put the following before/after your pic links to make the image show: (img)........ . jpg(/img), only use the square brackets [ and ] where I have used ( and ). If you want to see how it looks just hit the "quote post" thingy at the top and the post shows up how it is actually typed.

Hey Pavel. Very nice colors on that bird and I like how it is framed in its surroundings.
See you in about 3 hours from now

Thanks for the tips Pegelli! I'm really just getting started with taking photos. I was surprised at how the kit lens performed. Plus I didn't see many pictures of chickens/roosters on the forum.... :D

D7D, Sigma 500/4.5 +1.4 again... Yellowish color cast is caused by setting sun if somebody wonders...



Cheers,

Not well framed as it was a quick shot but I'd never seen a pelican scoop up a fish from the front before and was supprised how wide the lower beak opened.
