Grey Hron Fishing


Great shot, good colours and sharpness.
For me a little more water with the birds reflection would make it an even better photograph if possible, the colour of the water is stunning.
Have you cropped the original?

Thanks Peter,

I just cropped it a little to get a good size for posting....
When shooting with a 300mmm lens at close range you are not able to get the bird reflection also...
These birds are so darn big they fill up the whole

Cheers and thanks..

My favourite bird. You've got the focus and aperture settings spot on, amazing detail and crystal clear!

Great picture, Fons. A little bit to near for the ED 300.
What a problem! Don't forget your ED 50-200 ;-)
