I am not clear on what the problem is with the TC.

From where I am looking, that is a nice shot.

Thanks Dan. Without the tc,I could have pushed the shutter speed up a notch and gotten off of the 1/200 I ended up with. I don't care for the results I get with this camera above ISO 400.

Rick,

If the D300 is comparable with the D90, I think this kind of a subject can be shot with a higher ISO, as long as you don’t blow the snow. You’ve got good separation between highlights and shadows in the fur, and in the snow, any noise (luminance variety, not color) looks like ice crystals, bringing detail that might otherwise be lacking. If you let the deepest shadows go black, this kind of subject tolerates ISO up to about 1600, at least with the D90.

Did I say good capture? I didn't but I say so now.

Regards, Antero

Thanks for all that info,Antero. I have played around with higher ISOs and have seen many images that looked good at around 800 ISO but somewhere in my settings or in pp or a combination of both I lose what I call acceptable. In fact,I have very few images that I have kept that were shot at 500 ISO so I am sure it is me and not the camera.

Rick

The only problem I can see is that the face is a little oof. Nice detail in the fur. That's a pretty good shot Rick. He may have not given you time to take off the TC. Sometimes it's best to 'take 'em when you can get 'em'.....Scotty.

Thanks Scotty. He did give me a little time. This was the least cluttered but wish he would have shown his tail as well.

Thanks,Pakku. First one I've seen in some time that let me snap off a few frames before heading back to the water.

Nice capture. He probably would not have stayed put while you removed the tc. You still have a fine shot.
