The sun poked out just before sunset and backlit these grasses beautifully. I took advantage of the 400mm focal length to isolate these few.

    Lovely golden glow David. Took a similar shot myself the other day, but not as nice as this.

    Lovely isolation would your 85 offer a similar result or is the compression of the 400 what is making this shot so good.

    [] The 85 would have given a different result. Still good, but not the same.
