Nice shots.

You neglected to mention your shutter speed on the duck shots.

I would've interested to hear.

Thanks.

All nicely captured Mark, sharp and rich in detail. Just a personal preference, Mark, I would have brightened tha last 2 images a bit (+EV), unless of course you were going for a more subdued lighting effect.

Thanks, Richard! I purposely underexposed the swan by 1/3 for effect. The deer was exposed for the whites-I'm always afraid of blowing out the ears, throat and nose hair!

Thanks, Jim! The Sigma is a nice little lens that I always grab if I don't need the big, heavy glass. It's only slightly less sharp that the 200-400.

Awesome shots Mark I love the first one. Is the first one a crop? I would like of seen a little more room to the right on the first.

The others are very nice as well.

It's been awhile since I been on here and out with the camera. I do have a trip planed for Canvasbacks for the end of the Month.

Thanks, Mark! Yes, the first is a vertical crop of a horizontal image.

Good luck with those ducks! I'm hoping for snowfall this weekend so I can attempt BIF through the flakes.
