    I captured this image in Ochopee, FL, Nikon D850 Handheld, Nikkor 500mm PF

    ISO 640

    f5.6
    1/3200
    Manual Mode
    Processed on LR and PS. Neat image for background noise reduction
    Cropped approx. 50%


    Looking forward to your comments and critiques, they will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you

    Another beauty of a RSH shot. Have you got these guys trained ?? Awesome to have catchlights in both eyes, and the calling pose is sweet. Details look great, especially on the wingtips. The whites around the beak look just a bit hot, but its a small area so hard to say definitively on the jpg. Pano crop works perfectly for this pose. TFS

    Yes sir, that is just beautiful . And the 500 pf has given you all the detail you could ask for. Is this evening or early morning. Have you found the 1.4 on the pf reduces the detail much with the 850. I actually like the white around the eyes and on my monitor it doesn't appear too hot. But then I don't know the bird but the great light comes through.

    Thank you for the comment Ian. This was taken early morning. As expected the 1.4 reduces the detail a little. I compared the D850 +1.4 with the D500 without, the D500 file looks more crispy, a little better.

    D850 rocks and so does this screaming hawk image. I am not a huge fan of the too-AQUA sky color ...
