Wow! Great detail, love the catchlight.

I notice you shot this at ISO 800...could you have done this with ISO 400? If my math is correct, you would have a 1/625s shutter speed (1250/2), though your effective focal length would be 630mm (300mm x 1.5 x 1.4) which would be a little too close to the 1/focal length for hand holding without camera shake.

I guess I answered my own question. (I would have shot at ISO 800 too with similar equipment.

Was this handheld or on a tripod?

Anthony,
I'm learning. The shot was handheld.

Do not settle for mediocrity. Rather strive for excellence for even in that attempt lies a measure of success.
