ALL,

I would like your honest opinions. Would you consider this a "good shot"?

I took the first below shot at f/16, 1/160sec., ISO400 at 918mm tripod mounted...and about 60 feet away. This was not a 'well planned' shot as I am still testing out the V1 with the 70-200VR and the TC-17EII, tripod mounted with normal shutter release....no timer or remote. Post processed in PS/CS3.

In my opinion this would be an ok shot... but not a great shot. Or at that distance with this size bird is this about what we should expect? Has anyone done a 900mm shot of a 4" bird at 60 feet and got better results you can show me(us)?

I am trying to see what I should expect with this combo at these distances and subject sizes.

Also, I have included a second shot of a Cardinal at 300 feet with about the same settings from a monopod at 918mm.

All opinions on both shots are very welcome.
