"D7000 - working it out"


US
          

So far the camera is behaving itself. And I am trying to test in different situations. So far so good, except for some stupid operator errors related to how the autofocus works.

What are your thoughts of picture below - it is 90% cropped. 300 f/4, tc14e, ISO 800, f9.1, 1/2500, some PP in LR4.

The plane was probably at maybe 2000 feet altitude - i was panning tripod - but not doing a very good job as the ball-head was moving a little more than i had liked....focus point was on tail...

At any rate, would anyone expect anything better or different?

Exposure and focus seem good. You seem to have done OK with the panning since there is no motion blur. However, a much slower shutter speed would be nice so that you get some blur in the prop. Of course, the slower shutter speed will greatly test your panning technique.

A little bit of sharpening after the resize for the web might help.

Prop blur is easy to forget. I spend much of my summers on the beach with Coast Guard choppers frequently going by. My first shot almost always has a frozen rotor. I then say a few colorful words and drop the shutter speed to 1/125 or so, which is not quite slow enough sometimes.

Nice shot, Rick. I have no suggestions on shooting technique, you're way beyond my meager skills.

Post: you have LR 5, I think I remember you posting?

I might try some more sharpening, balanced with noise reduction. I'd also play with clarity, contrast, etc - those sliders up near the top - and see if I could get the plane to "pop" out a little more aggressively from the background. Might not be possible, I've never tried to PP anything like this.

Again, nicely done.

Thanks - I have LR4 actually (it was cheap..;>)

As this was near 100% crop and the plane was prob 2K feet in air, i tried to sharpen/noise reduce best i can...will play some more...
