    Thanks John. Nothing much else to do while waiting for my birds to show up so have been practising on the dragons.

    Thanks Tommy.

    Thanks Joe.

    It is very good practise for MF. I used to be so afraid of using it but now I will whenever it is needed especially with the macro lens. This was however taken with the zoom at 300mm and the dragon about 5 feet away.

    Thanks Paul. Your wish is my command sir.

    100% crop does not work as the dragon was touching each side of the crop. Here at 75% crop it still has some space.

    Yep it is a nice shot Bobo. I like both. However I was thinking a crop about half way between your two. As I do like the detail of the super close I really like the colors in the background as they play of the dragon well. so to keep some color and get a little more detail, I was thinking something more like this.

    Thanks Paul, your crop looks good. A 50% should do it. Will post that in the morning.
