Not much light and a heavy crop, but the low angle helps make an interesting composition.

I've lately been working on subject isolation. This attempt was shot @ 1/250 sec, but what really highlights the awesome sync-IBIS of the 300 Pro is that it was shot balancing off my foot with the screen turned up, rather than my usual evf method. I haven't shot with other formats, but getting a shot like this with a 600mm FF equivalent lens perched awkwardly seems difficult w/o the Oly IBIS. I have considered switching to the Nikon Z6, mostly because I always seem to be fighting a loosing battle with light vs shutter speed for my action shots with the smaller format, but I would really miss the stabilization with the Mk ii and 300 Pro.

Ok, I need to get off my ass and get out shooting.
Ronnie,
This one should ease the pain...
I notice your herons all have heads.

Went off to the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park earlier this year (Northern South Africa / Botswana border) - very dry up there indeed, not too much in the way of birdlife but there was plenty of other stuff to see.

Came across a very uncooperative Cheetah, this was the best angle I could get and backlit in the middle of the day to boot.
So I thought that I would try some B&W High Key processing seeing as the background was a tiny bit overexposed anyway.

I processed this in Camera RAW initially, then into Photoshop and Nik Silver Efex - used a preset but it did not quite have the look I wanted so I made a few adjustments.
