  #134 Wet
Entry 20 of 31
   
 
Grebe       ©2013 mbbin2
Panasonic DMC-FZ70       20th place, 20 points
1/125s, f5.9, ISO 100, 1200mm, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: converted from raw, cropped and resized in CS6.       Extra Info: I went on a photo safari to a nearby wildlife refuge. Found this little diving guy and saw that he fit the challenge. The water does not roll off his back like it does from a duck.

    LOL - Been there done that :-) I'm sure you have had enough experience to come up with your own system but what I do is hang my camera (or any other sensitive gear) over a lamp with a low (40W) bulb in it overnight. I learned this trick before lenses were sealed properly and used to get moisture in the inside.

    Softness also due to rainy and overcast. The bird was not the only thing wet.

    I find the weeds are a distraction and the shot is a bit unsharp no doubt a result of the long lens. One could not ask for a 'wetter' bird for sure, I have to wonder why nature lets the water wet the feathers so much (as compared to a duck).
