    Hi folks .... just a simple shot .
    Nothing to win a prize in a competition .
    Shot taken during my tests with the R3 .... but the image taken with the 1Dx III .
    Whenever it rained " heavy" I swapped the body's ... did not want to flood the new toy in the first days . I know what the 1Dx series can stand in terms of weather conditions .

    Canon EOS 1Dx III
    EF 200 - 400 IS L with TC engaged at 560 mm
    HH

    F 5,6 ; Iso 10.000 ; 1/800sec

    Processed with C1 and PSCC 2022 ; cropped to 75 % of FF

    Thanks for looking and commenting to my previous posting

    Cheers Andreas

    Hi Andreas, perhaps not the best of times to test, but I guess you need to start somewhere to find your feet, albeit the same perch as the squirrel, but a better BKG.

    Being slightly above rather than at eye level can't say which is best, so happy to leave that for the more experience Avian bods, but I do like the HA, did you work on the eye? Saying that, going lower I think may have lost the clump of snow at the back which I find a little ugly, but also I would just cleaned up a few of the spots on the log. Personally being so close I'm not a lover of the very short DoF, but techs were not so in your favour. For me, being so close I would have liked a bot more in focus, but that's just my taste.

    Andreas, colours and details very good, the angle of the bird is not ideal for me and whilst I often say I am not bothered about a perfect DOF I do feel it is a little limited. I quite like the perch and snow with the exception of the lump of OOF ice at the back.
