Hello Nelson,
Why is your photo so small? Is it because you will lose too much sharpness at a larger format? 1/16 second at 400mm is just too much of a challenge. With the use of a good tripod, you would achieve very good sharpness and a great image. With that lens a tripod or other suitable camera support is a must for the longer focal lengths. Mind you, you could have opened the aperture to around f11, rather than the f32 that you used, for a higher shutter speed. And by pushing the ISO up to 800, say, you probably would have ended up with a very manageable 1/500th shutter speed. Your camera would handle ISO800 with ease.

Hi Nelson,
Well Neels has said it all and I quite agree with him especially pushing for a faster shutter and the use of a tripod. Do you have the 100 - 400 f2.8 as well?

Although far away and you managed to get this close, for me the bird is not in full focus with a lack of detail. Just my opinion. Do not feel offended please.

The position of the bird in the frame well placed also a very natural colours by an excellent POV and daylights we are waiting for some more pictures of another birds-portrait
