When I took this photo this past weekend on an old farm in the Blue Ridge Mountain region of Virginia, I was using my 50mm “prime” lens, which has no zoom function. Therefore, in order to get closer I had to actually move closer. That was a problem, because this guy was not going to allow that, and I was definitely not going to test his patience. So, I cropped it a bit in Lightroom and was impressed with just how sharp that 50mm lens is. The colors in this rooster were striking, and gave him a much more powerful look. Maybe that’s by choice, given all the hens that were surrounding him. (Nikon D300, ISO 200, 50mm, f.7.1, 1/400sec)
