OUTSTANDING IQ!

How close were you for this shot? How much has it been cropped?

I don’t remember seeing any geese on Kauai, it was over run with chickens though!

These certainly were plentiful out at the lighthouse, and in another place we visited.
Chooks, roosters, chickens. No shortage of them.

OUTSTANDING IQ!

How close were you for this shot? How much has it been cropped?

Thanks Wayne… For me IQ has almost nothing to do with the camera but how I use that camera and the lack of motion blur…

The power of the R is in the exposure as you can tweak to get exactly what your wanting in the highlights and the darks as your taking the images.. and the AF is astonishingly accurate.
The motion blur or the lack of is harder with the EOS R than say the 7DII in that the R can be so much more accurate giving more detail. I liked my 7DII's but the R is so much more.

The image has so little done to it I'm sure I screw most of my images up trying to make great even better..
