Lots of contrast to manage... the dynamic range comes into play. I finally figured out shooting various species of white egrets/herons but loons are more difficult, I would think.

Your post processing must be brilliant or you are able to finesse your 7D2 because your photos have good color and are sharp.

I agree with both. I get pretty decent results with Lightroom and the Nik suite... but I really do need to learn Photoshop. I have the books.... and know where the tutorials are. I can't seem to get motivated, I guess.

So... how are your plans on a different camera coming? 1D X mark 1 in your future? The used prices are coming down. I picked up another 1D IV for a song the other day. It looks like it's never been used. I think the guy mostly shot in a studio... plus some indoor events. Anyway, I couldn't resist it.

I'm going to be shooting a wedding (not hired for the job.... just getting some photographs for my best friend who is getting married)... I'll have both cameras set up for distance stuff... 70-200 f/2.8 on one... the 100-400ii on the other. I hope I capture some interesting stuff. There will be lots of grandchildren running around and a couple of great grandchildren.

I say distance because I have to make sure I'm out of the wedding photographer's way... I don't want to be "that" guy.

super.. if you can get your hands on a 70-300L do so. Its a way better wedding shooter than the 100-400L.

Sitting near the back yard feeders, waiting for HBIF, instead I took a few portraits.

This young male was watching me and his favorite feeder, taking on all challengers.

Later, my feeders were mobbed by a small flock of Carolina Chickadees, perhaps attracted to the bright red colors, not sure.

These are both from about 7 meters distance, handheld, center focus point, spot meter, considerably cropped.

I still have my 70-300L. I'll have to bring it along...though I'm out of camera bag space at the moment. I don't know exactly how far away I'll be... that's why I think the 400ii might be a better choice.
