Greats shots Normcar. Someday I will upgrade to 1DMkII or whatever's its equivalent at the time but that will be after I get the 500mm f4.

I just noticed in the3rd shot, there are water droplets on the belly of the bird at the bottom. Seems he/she just came out of shower.

The 2nd one seems cropped too much.

shots Normcar.

That first one looks like you took if from a spot in formation right next to them.

Thanks all, I appreciate the comments.

Are you sure you don't mean the "third" one bobby? :-)That one's a wing buster. Oh, now I understand, I thought you meant the second "picture" not the second bird in the same picture...hehe, it's getting to be a long day. Actually, I didn't need to crop that at all since I missed that part of the wing entirely with my camera :-)

One thing about the Sigma 50-500 is that it puts pro distances in the hands of us amatuers with some degree of quality to boot and without breaking the bank. If my 50-500 broke tomorrow I'd order another one that same day. Wouldn't be without one now.

Now don't y'all get mad, but I cheated a bit on this photo. I used layers to copy and paste the lower right goose closer to the other two so that I could lessen the empty blue space and make more of the crop. That one was actually slightly lower. I wouldn't have taken the time had the background not been so single-toned as to make it an easy move.

Normcar no worries.

It is just a picture after all and these days anything goes with trying to make them look how you want them.

Nice work you can't tell you even fooled with it.
