Nice ! I realy like this for the way that you've got the birds crossing the frame of the shot, the exposure, the sharpness and the lovely sky colour.

Regards,
Graham.

Thanks Graham, this is shear luck. I have to confess, it's not as if I took the time to compose and shoot, these Geese were all over. I just did a reset on the 300D, since sometimes I have focus issue when swapping lens, I was actually putting all the parameters back in and all of a suddon I saw this.

The only thing I had time for was to set the shutter speed for the proper exposure, I was pointing north, reason why the sky is so nice (didn't fixed the sky in PS). And a lucky last thing ; it was in 7 point AF mode (was putting parameters back in), when normally I shoot in center AF, guess that saved me, the camera AF chose a point and sticked to it.

I always shoot in M mode, so as mentioned above, was set at F/8, chose 1/1000 sec shutter, ISO 200 and took a snap.

So yes, it was a lucky shot for sure, LOL

Cheers !
