Default To cdewet: Magpie

Hi,

Callie, you are right we are in Barberton and looking forward to Kruger next week.

When we took this shot of the magpie, we had a two times converter on, dont know if that was the problem. Do you think that its a waste using a converter in Kruger because of the reduction of quality that you will get from the lense?

I have a question to ask you if you dont mind me asking. I was taking a photo of sunset this evening and kept getting little sun reflections all over the photo. What can I do to get rid of the glare?

Thanks
Jannie

Hi Jannie
2X rules. I always shoot with the 2 on my 120-300 f2,8. I shoot anyway most things, animasls & birds on F8.
The sunse is lensflare, the light from the sun rebounds inside the lens across lenses, giving you the lensflare you refer to. Hold, or let someone hold, a hat, sheet of carton, above the lens so that the front element of the lens is in shade. Make sure you the screen is not in the picture. Also, take your reading off the sky next to the sun, not off the sun.
Enjoy KRuger, I am going DV, in September to Sanbonanie, next to Hazyview, and cant't wait for kruger,
Enjoy it
Regards
Callie

Firstly thank you for your reply and advice. Where is DV, and we hope you enjoy Sanbonanie.

We find it difficult to focus when the lense is 300mm to 600mm with the converter on, dont know why.

We will enjoy Kruger, we have looked forward to this for a year. I love it when people stop next to me in Kruger and I am looking at a bird and they huff and speed off hoping we had spotted a leopard or some big animal.

Thanks again
Jannie
