The bird stands out very nicely from the background. Very attractive shot.

Incredible image. Have you cropped it differently? The bright white on the left is distracting to my eye. I love the sharp bird against the softer rocks and sea. This would make a wonderful large canvas print. I envy you. I have never photographed a puffin.

Here's a different crop, but I think it is too tight. I kind of liked the other one ?

Fantastic shot. Makes me wonder what kind of AF setting you were using to nail a BIF on the right side of the frame, unless the shot is a crop.

Thanks ! I honestly can't remember ? I usually use center point, with the four expansion points for BIF.

I agree, too tight. The original is special. Thanks. The sea with the bird is classic.

I had a fun weekend. I took out my new Fuji and my A9 with the MC-11 and Canon big whites. This is the A9 using the MC-11 with the 500mm F4. I was pretty impressed with the speed and tracking of the adapted glass. I only put it away when I got tired of hand holding the beast.
