QUOTED IMAGE

Really nice shot! I'd love to see the EXIF info for this image. I know you said "poor" light, but it looks like the quality of the light may have been ok - and that perhaps just the quantity of light was low. At least all of the snow gave you enough diffused reflected light to make a decent exposure.


"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

ISO 10,000.....WOW!!!!
Just curious if you would share your reasons for going with such a high ISO, even though there was plenty of light for, say, 1600 ISO. I always find it interesting when people share about the compromises made with regard to the exposure triangle.

I was shooting birds when I spotted him, It was just after 8 am and very dark and dull yesterday.
I like my shutter speed above 1/1000 for birds, was shooting in Av yesterday and needed the iso that high to keep my shutter speed up.
I got 2 shots off, the other one he dropped behind the log and was gone.

Oh, if I shot that at iso 1600 my shutter speed would probably have been 1/30.
Also dont have a wimberly head on my tripod to keep it rock solid.:cry:
