Sculptural by Majnouna Sculptural by Majnouna
A Great Cormorant, with striking blue eyes, poses for the camera in Muthurajawela nature reserve, southern Sri Lanka.

No manip whatsoever beyond a slight level adjustment. Shooting from a moving boat has interesting consequences.

I always thought Cormorants were seabirds from somewhere cold hah.

Great photo though, I don't have the steady hands/patience for wildlife photography myself.

You must have had them confused with another bird :)

Crazy eyes, huh? How much of a telephoto did you use here?

Majnouna Featured By Owner Dec 26, 2007  Professional General Artist
It's a 75-300 mm, but I don't remember how much of it I used for this.

I have one of those. I found it's the only way to do nature and astrophotography. Is your's the one Canon makes or another model?

Nikon AF Nikkor for SLR :)

A friend of mine uses the Nikon. I'm quite happy with my Rebel, although the differences seem fairly minimal.

You must have a very quick camara. The image of the bird is so crisp and clear.

It's not really up to the camera, and the light wasn't particularly good, but I have a steady hand :)
