I like the last 2 the most. 3rd in the list is my favourite. As I was instructed only days ago on this very board, cropping your image can bring a considerably better composed image.

Try to bring greater emphasis onto the subjects, in this case the winged creatures :lol:

The exposure is well done (with the sky behind the bird, it can trick most cameras.) And they are reasonably sharp. Good job.

I agree with photodude about which he likes. I'd also throw in that it's almost always better to get the entire head in the shot.

I need to go to the beach and practice my paning shots on gulls. I want to get better at it, and it seems the easiest way to do it.

it was kinda tricky situation...the boat was moving...the birds were flying...and bright sunny light...i was lucky that my lense focus very fast and that i didn't blow out much highlights...

i agree i will go to my local beach to practice panning on birds...
