1/250s @ f/6.3 ISO 320 @ FL 280mm
This has long been a favorite image of mine. I photographed this majestic creature about two years when I was doing a feature article for The Yucatan Times newspaper in Merida, Yucatan. I was their staff photographer for about a year. This version of the image has been “Posterized” in Photoshop to give it a more artistic look, and I used it to create a political poster of sorts.

Photographer’s note: Captured as a CameraRAW file with my Canon EOS 5D Mark II full-frame digital camera and Canon EF 70-200mm f/4L USM telephoto zoom lens with 1.4x TC. RAW conversion was completed in Adobe Camera RAW, and post-edits (including posterization) in Photoshop Elements 11 (PSE11). The political poster was created using Big Huge Labs software.
