Interesting link! For RP I always use(d) Gimp to scale down to 500 width, remove the exif, then upload to a forum photo site (with 500 pixels I do not care if it is grabbed or not), then hacked the link in html here.

I have no Flickr account, or any other sharing site, although have been thinking of it in the past. Are you, by the way, involved in the RP slideshow?

PS: I will stick to the EF 100-400 (and the 1.4x) for the foreseeable future. Do like my RF glass though.

Thanks :-) Looked at the Exif... This and the other picture were both taken with an EF 100-400/4.5-5.6L IS II. This one at 400 mm, the other at 200 mm (a couple of minutes apart). Both de facto not cropped. The camera was a R5.

Great photo, I like the horizontal bands of light and the monochromaticity of the image.  And the people kind of squeezed into a thin region at the bottom helps suggest something is coming to an end.

See that big dark mass on the horizon?

Thanks for the tips. I've used manual in lower light conditions (like a concert), I'll have to try that out on a hike.

He was definitely roaring, showing dominance over the rookery as the senior male. It's quite the sight if you haven't seen it, and it's just a few hours drive south of you (If I remember correctly).

I set my camera in "manual" mode to give me decent depth-of-field (f/11), and a fast shutter speed (1/1500).  Then let the camera adjust the ISO to get the proper exposure.  Since it was a bright sunny day the resulting ISO was pretty reasonable.  I also adjusted the exposure down half a stop to prevent bright areas from getting blown out. I had the best success when framing the scene where there was less movement, like a tight corner.  Otherwise, just take lots and lots of photos!  Most of the shots I was cropping a fair amount, which gives flexibility to correct framing after the fact. For focus I tried a few things: pre-focusing on an area I knew they would be, versus using some of the fancy focus mode like predictive-3D.  I can't say either was perfect.  This is an area where having a better camera will increase your odds: faster focusing and less shutter lag.
less depth of field and faster shutter speed would fix that but on a long lens, well you'd have to have one hell of a lens$$$ Great try, though!
 
Given the subject, both shutter and aperture settings were merely adequate.  The good-old "Sunny 16" rule says that on a sunny day the correct exposure is f/16 with shutter speed = the inverse of the ISO.  Since I'm opened up one stop (2X more light) at f/11 versus f/16, the ISO should be 1500/2 = 750, actually closer to 500 since I'm deliberately underexposing a bit.  All told this gives a fairly decent image quality on my camera, but I wouldn't want to go much higher, especially since I'm cropping the images.  I'm using a 6 year old non-pro, non full frame image sensor camera and medium grade lens - I'd say the minimum setup to get decent photos, but still not matching what the Pro's have (not to mention much closer vantage points!)

Catching moving objects without blur (or being out of focus) are hard for me. Great job!
