Default Birds in fly (kit lens)

Hi everyone,

I want to show some pictures I shoot last month in a park in front of my home.
I used the 40-150mm kit lens (old one) with the E5 + FL-50
I don't have to much experience doing this kind of photography but I'm learning from you guys.














Have a great day everybody.

These are VERY good for your first attempts and a kit lens! I still have to teach myself to do birds in flight.

I really like the contract between the colors in the duck and the monochrome of the background, especially in the first one.

You know I've had the E3 for what nearly 3 years and I have yet to take anything like those even with the 35-100F2, so as a first attempt and with the kit lens those are pretty good indeed.

The day was very dark and product of the snow the background looks very pale. Adjusting a little the contrast in PS CS5 the colors pop up.
