Hi Treklens...
another of my wild shots and using shorter F stop and higher shutter speed...
The ISO-400
these are all from west Bengal in India...
Just having fun 300mm lens and see what it will do with different settings under same light conditions...
Since it is all hand-held, I continue to use faster shutter speed!

Hi David,
this is really SHARP,lots of details visible,would the 200 shutter speed still capture him clearly,if he started to move slowly,or would it be better having an even faster speed?

Hi David,

At 300mm with a shutter of 1/200 this came out nicely for hand-held. Rules are meant to be broken, and with image stabilization it's a little easier. Very sharp, with good use of a wide aperture to blur the background. Usually once I get this look from a deer, it's too late for a photo ;)


Hi David,
This is a very beautiful picture.

Hi David,

What a wonderful closeup capture from a deer, just posing for you! This lovely deer makes a perfect model for a wildlife magazine :)

The picture is razor-sharp and the focus is spot-on. The eyes of the deer are very well shown and says it all. He/she is relaxing, enjoying a good time getting photographed :)
Nice natural colors and the great surroundings.
Your tele-zoom gave nice results. Congrats!

Best regards,

Hi David, this is surely a decisive moment and a wonderful shot of a wonderful animal. Who can do it better than you? T>Y> for your support. Cheers from Canada
