Well, this was a target of opportunity, so the sun was out of my control. I am using a SONY alpha350 with a Sigma DG
70-300 zoom lens. The last photo was done at f/7.1, 1/800 shutter speed, and 210 mm.
I must admit it's getting a little frustrating. They look OK
when I first examine the images, but after getting the comments and looking again, I see the softness, etc. Back into the field, I guess.
Thanks for your help.
