The La Chua Trail part of Paynes Prairie. It's on the Southeast side of Gainesville. It's a nice place to walk around.

Will have to check it out sometime. Looks very similar to our Circle B Bar Reserve here in Lakeland.

I've only been the the Circle B Bar Reserve once. It was nice but wasn't too active that day.

Good point, I just edited my signature to include the statement "Image Editing Ok" seems to work okay.

Good Idea, I think this will catch on.

I use the Dot Tune method when doing MFA, in my experience this generally gets you very close, then when using the lens in every day shooting, especially with shots like yours with a narrow DOF, you can get a feel for if it needs bumped an extra little bit either way, but Dot Tune will get you get close enough to start with.
Good luck and enjoy the process.

Cheers

I agree. I did the same with one lens. I needed +9, but bumped it to +11 and the images look much sharper with better feather detail. I will continue to use this setting for a few days to make sure it's consistent.

Nice, if I may ask, which lens was that with?

My first shot with the 7D2 pretty much straight out of the camera.
Slight crop and reduced highlights to take the shine off the back of his head.

Can someone provide guidance on setting up back button focusing?

Thank you.

Open the Menus....

Go to the "orange" colored menus under the little camera icon and go to page 3. ("C.Fn3 Disp. / Operation") and scroll to the bottom and open "Custom Controls".

Scroll to AF-ON button (the back button) and click on AF and turn off AF under the Shutter Button.

You can alternatively make a couple different buttons do this function (and / or others) depending on what is most comfortable to you.

If this doesn't make sense you can open your CD PDF manual. Look up "Custom Controls" under "Customizing your Camera"

Worth while switch in my opinion.

I used Dot Tune and came up with +1 as the correct setting, then real world test shots of birds in my garden suggested that +2 or even +3 would suit my normal focus on the wing for best contrast on small subjects. I made a quick trip down the road to our local harbour and took this image of a Redshank with MFA +2. The focus was on the head of this bird.

I was quite happy with this - but then again I was happy with the previous Woodpigeon with the forward focus! I first saw this bird flying towards me and did not have time to switch from single point focus but somehow the focusing picked it up although the focus spot had drifted off the bird as it passed by at speed (it was about a foot behind the bird) and using AF Case 1. Still the result was encouraging for a grab shot.
