Nice variety you got there. Feather or metal, birds look more beautiful in flight. The 3-plane shot is very well taken.

These are wonderful, colorful shots! I also like the shot of 3 planes in flight.

Thanks Raghu and Saly, it was a very sunny day but managed to capture some decent shots by playing around with EV.

The following settings I found in a website. Hope this will help others too...

Suggested exposure value settings
  • Bright sunlight coming over the back of you when taking a photo: -0.3 or -0.7 EV compensation
  • For shots with strong light coming behind the subject (back lit): +0.7 or +1.0 EV
  • Scene with bright sun: 0 to -2 EV
  • Snow, beach or highly reflected water: -2/3 to -2 EV
  • Close-up of white or yellow flower: -1/3 to -1 EV
  • Dimly lit night sky: 0 to +2 EV
  • Land or seascape taken just prior to dusk: 0 EV to +2/3
  • Very dark or black objects: + 2/3 to +1 1/3

Cheers,
Chirantha
