[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Wanted to post something on TN after a long time and this one was from my last trip to Maidanhalli Black Buck Santuary , which is about 120-150 Kms from Bangalore.

This was running and with my 500mm and panning , this was the max i could get

Hope you ppl like it

Hello Goutham,
Happy to see again one of your shots! Your Black Buck doesn't look very black, but it is a beautiful and elegant animal which you have perfectely taken in its very fast movement. I never have tried panning, you have well succeeded with this shot.
Kind regards

Hello Goutham!
Under the circumstances it's an excellent photo! You can be proud of it! Panning is not an easy thing to do and panning with an as big lense as your Sigma must have been very difficult! Though the results are spectacular!!! Good sharpness, many details, the head and the neck of the subject a little bit moved, due to vertical balance shows dynamics. I like it a lot!
Thank you for sharing this beauty!

Hallo Goutham
It is great to see a post from you after such a long time. Excellent timing here. I like all your pictures, insects, birds and all other are so beautifully captured just as this "flying" Black buck. A great shot indeed. Wonderful detail and clarity. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
