i got this cooperative but extremely active fellow in full frame. i seem to be getting enough details on the body but am not too happy with the sharpness and details of the face (where it matters). spot metering and non continuous servo. any suggestions? DSC_8091 by gabsbuluran, on Flickr
Camera Nikon D300S Exposure 0.003 sec (1/320) Aperture f/6.3 Focal Length 400 mm ISO Speed 1000
Gabs, the face looks sharp to me at this posted size. If it's soft at 100% view, it's probably a combination of slowish shutter speed and imperfect focus. For walking birds, I'd recommend a shutter speed fast enough to freeze motion (say 1/640 sec or faster), plus AI servo.
For my taste, the WB is a bit on the warm side as posted.
