Photograph Information Photographer's Comments
Challenge: Bokeh II (Basic Editing III)
Camera: Canon EOS-10D
Lens: Canon EF 400mm f/5.6L USM
Location: Estes Park, Colorado
Date: Jun 14, 2006
Aperture: f/6.7
ISO: 400
Shutter: 1/500 sec.
Galleries: Nature, Animals
Date Uploaded: Jun 18, 2006

Bright sunlight, tripod mount, shutter release cable, about 15 feet away. Intentionally set the aperture at less than wide open to make sure the DOF plane encompassed the bird, yet still blurred the background. Also, intentionally chose a shooting angle to minimize the bright sky in the background. Background is a Ponderosa Pine forest.

Lovely background and very cool bird! I only wish that we could see a little more of his face but I realize that they aren't exactly the most poseable subjects. :) Nicely done.
