A Nature Shoot at Five Rivers
As I am becoming more ambulatory with my walking boot, i thought a little outing to our local nature preserve would be worthwhile this morning. I used a Nikon D200 DSLR and a 400m Nikon F4 lens. On a Dx camera that is equal to a 600mm lens, great for wildlife without compromising the animals. To get a fast shutter speed of a minimum 1/600th second, I set the ISO to 800 and shot between F8 and F5.6 depending on the light. The rabbit was at 5.6 for example.
WB was automatic and then adjusted in iPhoto with subtle editing of curves and contrast.
It was great to get out and enjoy this special place. Enjoy, Jeff
