Dan's 1st of 52 for 2011

Week 1


Red-shouldered Hawk
Olympus E-520 with ZD ED 50-200mm Mk I Lens
ISO 400, 200mm, 0 ev, f3.5, 1/60, hand held with I.S. 1 on
Raw file processed using Aperture 3 with a slight crop (5.8/10 MP)

The red-shouldered hawk is the most common raptor in my neighborhood and one of my favorite subjects. This one was perched on a thick vine branch about six feet off the ground. It was late afternoon, and the sun provided a nice backlighting. The image is not quite as sharp as I would have liked, and the hawk flew before I could increase the ISO. Nonetheless, it is my best shot for the week of January 2nd.

Comments, suggestions and critiques are welcomed.

Dan
