[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We were taking a boat ride in the Sarasota Bay and these Osprey's happened to be together nesting. I find it really hard to stay still in a boat attempting to shoot with my new camera and the 300mm lens. Though I wanted to do better, this shot with the rough seas came out o.k. for the most part. Any workshops, pointers greatly appreciated.

Hi Lidia,
You did well under very unfavourable conditions and a long lens. A slightly higher POV might improve the composition, but obviously it was not possible. You should try a lower f/ value (f/11 would be enough for the necessary DOF) and a higher shutter speed (around 1/500-800 sec.) to freeze the wing -and boat- movements.
