Whilst giving the Tamron Lens an outing I switched over to my Sigma EX 28-70mm f/2.8 and grabbed these two.

Not quite eagles, but I was very happywith how sharp they came out.

Nice shots, that Sigma lens is a great performer and lighter than the Pentax version which makes it easier to hand hold.

When I saw the first one on the PC screen when I got back, it reminded me of your eagle shot for its sharpness. I still have some work to do to get up to your standard though.

I am not sure how you could do much better than the first one, it is extremely sharp.

1. More central to the shot, not with the feet hanging off the bottom of the shot.
2. Something more magestic than a seagull, say a bloody great huge eagle :lol::lol:

Bloody Good shots Crashman!The sharpness and color are fantastic. How much cropping did you apply?

None...that is as it was, just resized for the web, some PP for contrast. They were kind of low....if you know what I mean.

Gulls are the best, since they are so cooperative at hanging around while you fumble with your gear. You can spend a day shooting them and practicing new techniques, while Eagles are not so people friendly and are usually gone after a short period of time.

Composition could be better, but they are still sharp with great color.
