    Exif Sub IFD

    * Exposure Time (1 / Shutter Speed) = 1/320 second = 0.00313 second
    * Lens F-Number/F-Stop = 56/10 = F5.60
    * ISO Speed Ratings = 400
    * Original Date/Time = 2008:01:11 11:50:55
    * Shutter Speed Value (APEX) = 8321928/1000000
    Shutter Speed (Exposure Time) = 1/320.00 second
    * Aperture Value (APEX) = 4970854/1000000
    Aperture = F5.60
    * Flash = Flash did not fire, compulsory flash mode
    * Focal Length = 300/1 mm = 300.00 mm

    Fill flash, I believe, is the only thing that could have saved that photo, and it was a good 25 feet away.

    A lower ISO and a polarizer may help that

    Lower iso and I drop below 1/300 and I get camera shake. I probably should have a polarizer though.

    its in contrasty lighting and the face is properly exposed but isn't lit the way the background is. that a time of day/location problem. wasn't going to be a winner no matter what lens you used.

    polarizer wouldn't help either

    if you have to shoot in those conditions, make sure to have the face lit, or backlit

    Yeah, thanks. Shot is soft because of the lens, though.

    This thread is really just a lament about missed shots and poor shooting conditions, thanks to everyone who took it seriously though.

    Its all about the lighting though. Especially if there is glass or fencing in front. For wildlife I prefer overcast days :hs:
