Looking for advice/suggestions from the experts. Zeroed in on this Kingfisher at a distance of about 30 to 35 feet waiting for him to fly. When he does fly I press the button and hope for the best. With the speed that it all happens and being that close, he's hard to track.

Shooting JPEG, Ai Servo, Zone AF, from my vehicle with the lens resting on a piece of foam pipe insulation attached to the window.

Anyway, just wondering if anyone would have suggestions as how to improve on my technique.

Thanks,

Doc G

Thanks everyone!

Gschlact I was trying to get any depth of field I could. Distance to the owl was at most 30 feet . You saw the shutter was 0.4 sec so I could keep the ISO down as much as possible.
Remember I'm really a point and shoot type when it comes to the depth of knowledge most all of you have here which is to say I'm just ecstatic I got that owl. Never even thought of the Crested before the trip. So was ultimately hoping for one, got five, but the last two nights have thwarted me trying to find a Mottled.....I can't complain though.

I'm not sure you can do much better, the eyes are in focus, I see good detail. I'm a beginner, so take my comments with a lot of salt.

One might do better if it is a bird whose habits become known so you can do better setting the shot up, I'm assuming a typical wild kingfisher that you may not see again.

Hello. I am new to the forum and a bit of a shutterbug. I recently bought a 7D2 but I noticed I am having trouble discerning between variations in colors on some of my outdoor shoots. I wasn't sure if it was the viewfinder or just me. My friend gave me a few websites where you can take color tests. He gave me this one particular Color Test (external link) and I seem to be deficient in the color vision department. Has anyone ever had this problem and do you have any tests to try or tips to help? Thanks

Here's a shot from last nights game, using a few of the tips I have received on my RAW photos. Let me know how I did... where to improve. This really was just a test image!
