    This image is from two months ago in Foster city, CA and one of the first images I made with my Nikon D5 and 600 FL in challenging conditions (very windy and low light)


    Nikon D5 Nikon 600 f/4 FL + TC14E III ISO 3200 1/2500sec hand held. processed With C1P


    hope you like it

    Nice wings-up flight pose. I go back and forth with the D5/D850 as to which is best for flight. Right now, I can barely hand hold the 200-500 for long ... The image overall looks a bit dark on my monitor, especially the face.

    with love, artie

    ps: I did get to see and photograph Little Stint in Norway the other day. Nothing great but very exciting for me none-the-less. Learn why in the blog post here; the backstory will be quite interesting for folks who love shorebirds.

    Hi Arash, I like the soft, muted colour palette here and the overall spread of tonal range. Like the position in frame and the vertical wings. The mud on the tip of the bill and splattered face is a nice addition. Is this a crop or FF?

    Well don eArash, I like the soft muted colors throughout, and the wings up is a big thumbs up!

    Thanks Arash, nice to have all those pixels to play with, but as I said to you, lets see what happens this year with Canon, although I think the 7D3 will still be nothing special as a starter, it's the next ones I want to see...

    All the best.

    Well done. Great pose and IQ, and handheld with the 600, nice job. I have the older one that weighs 13 lbs, and I definitely struggle with it sometimes.

    Another perfect shot, Arash, especially considering the tough conditions, handholding at 840 mm, high ISO and poor light. Subtle striated background adds.
