I like seeing what the camera captured that I didn't see. Call it Freeze Frame or whatever it's what hooked me when I started as a sports shooter 10 years ago and has led me to 'freezing' other things that the human eye could never see.

 

 

Here's an example from a few weeks ago. A common seagull fishing. I saw the fish in her mouth but never saw this shot.

  Thanks SS was 1/2000, ISO was on auto Exif is attached  

Fantastic timing, framing, focus, and exposure.

Thanks Brian....exposure took some practice at this place....all white birds are a challenge....I found that manual 1/2000 f/8 AUTO ISO On and ev=-.3 worked best

Thanks

Thanks for sharing your info, much appreciated

I'm also finding manual to be a better option for me, only have a "MiniD3" and 300 f4 but getting more keepers on manual, haven't tried the auto ISO yet

IMO Manual is useless in situations like this (fast action and changing light) unless you also use Auto ISO because you don't have the time to change your aperture,shutter speed and/or ISO to correctly meter the scene. I know alot of shooters don't like Auto ISO because they think it is letting the camera make decisions for them, and it is, but it's the same metering system either way Auto ISO or not.
