As an example of how long it can take me to process photos, here are a few that I took in April to test out my then-new Sigma 150 – 600mm lens. It was the beginning of spring so the beach was still pretty cold, but the gulls were out and provided ample subject matter for me to shoot.
I caught a variety of shots in the air, on the ground, and in the water. Overall I’m very impressed with the quality of the lens. Most images were captured from ISO 800 – 1600 at f/6.3. The length of that lens combined with the low-noise and high dynamic range of my camera really increases my chances of catching a good image of a bird in flight. I even grabbed a shot of the shoreline.
