Hi all

Well have finally got round to reviewing some shots I took at the weekend using the sigma 70-300 APO DG.

This is a series of three shots taken whilst sheltering from the rain in a large hide, all shots were taken using the camera in continuous focus mode and in continuous drive mode. Photos wereshot as JPEG and have some cropping and PP done.



Comments welcome

Regards

Goth

Ive no idea how fast these birds were travelling, and Ive never really attempted birds in filght before, (my old P&S fuji just wasnt up to it) I know I still have some way to go before capturing that winning shot but as a first attempt I was pleased with the results.

Any hints and tips on this type of photography together with maybe lens suggestions would be apprecaited.

Kind regards

Goth

Fantastic birds-in-flight shots, you certainly have the hang of that camera and lens combination.
