Beautiful colour and textures in this composition Gerhard.
Tack sharp as usual.
Excellent capture.Golden colors of heron and BG are great.I liked POV,lighting,clear details,sharpness,framing and composition also a lot.I have the same lens but no canon camera yet:).Is it not suitable for flying birds with TC or also alone?

Wow! This is a really stunning picture! I like those warm colors and details you caught. I think I have never seen a Purple Heron so far. This is a funny name because I think he looks more orange than purple here. Maybe, this might comes from the way you process it or this lightning? This POV, DOF, colors, contrast and composition and very pleasant. I liked your notes about him and about this lens you have. As I usually take my pictures hand held, I think this one should be too heavy from me but it seems to work very well :) Thanks,

Fabulous shot of the Purple Heron which is such a beautiful bird. Excellent focus and great composition. I presume this was shot in the evening sun light or how come the golden colour? (The title reminds me of the film with the same name!)
Many thanks, Ulla

a lovely picture wiht this Golden tones and colours.
The shallow is very good, the bird standout well from the nice BG.
The sharpness and details are slightly better than your first camera, Minolta Z1. ;-))))
Great work, my friend.

What an amazing picture of a Purple Heron! You got a great pov, and like especially the warm colors!!! DOF and composition cannot be better (I like the green vegetation on the right framing the bird...). Great job and TFS,

This shot has all the merits of a top shot with the added bonus that the play of colours has the effect of it looking like a fine piece of marquetry.
This shot does inspire one to get a new lens but even after considering the economics I had better stick to my 300 when you describe the weight training one would have to endure!
Thanks for the photo and the info.
Best wishes, Ivan

Wow, what a nice picture Gerhard. The colors and the warm light are phenomenal. Composition and POV are good. DOF is amazing. What a sweet lens this must be. I wish I could get my dirty little hands on them. :)
Gerhard, great warm shades here.
I like exposure and saturation too. Excellent sharpness.
Let me ask you: does autofocus work with the converter?

Awesome lighting and sharpness indeed. The BG is far enough removed from the pic. The subject is very clear.
