|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|This is a long distance shot of a Coot at Martin Mere taken early in the year as it was feeding on weed fronds.|
Camera settings:- ISO 200, 1200mm focal length, 2x converter, remote shutter cord.
Very difficult one to capture...due to black and white issues...
You got detail in the dark partswhich is good.
On the other hand the beak highlights are tending to be less detailed...however...
But like I said almost a mission impossible...
Tried a few times myself to capture this bird with a 350D and the 70-30. Conclusion: if I had more pixels and a longer focal length then I'll give it another try ):

Clarity, focus, sharpness, exposure and the pose is very good. TFS
Very good capture. I know it is not easy to shoot it, I've tried it myself, but these creatures never come close and they can detect you from far away, so I only got distant photos. Very good exposure, details and composition. I also like the natural look (not too processed).
very good shot
