Default Drive by shooting-BIF images

I was using a drive by shooting method. And this is the latest one on flying bird tracking exercise with A*300mmF4
You can see the exif re the time taken for each frame. I was using burst mode which was only around 2 frames per second. If I used straight manual metering, I did get around 3 FPS

very nice, daniel. My only concern is the haloing that is noticeably apparent on my monitor on trailing duck. Should be an easy fix. Did you use topaz or another HDR program to make this pop?

Nice captures of the birds in flight. Images looks a little dull on my monitor and WB seems a bit off as well....hope you don't mind the feedback!

I think you did an excellent job on these, Daniel.
As Jehan mentioned, a little bit dull on the color but easy to fif. I don't see but a very slight bit of halo if I study real hard but, no more in the trailing Mallard than the other. And its not in all the shots. Over all, you did good!

Thanks. Anytime when I fooled around with those pp I got into trouble. Got to go back to the original image to touch up

A little work could really clean these up and make them look great.

1. Looks like dust & a hair on your sensor.

2. Cables in all the shots ? If so then for some at least if you convert them to panoramas then you are going to lose the cables and create some great images.

Great captures of the action, and fine composition as always. Despite the cables, I really like the one that shows the more distant flock passing...

Hey Daniel,
I agree, PP can be tricky and it does take a little practice but, It can turn a good photo into a great photo.
I took the liberty to try my hand on this one. Of course, I could do better with the original, Hope you don't mind.
The before...



And the after.

GW ,

My pp skill if any sucks
Thanks for the tweaking. The halo was caused by pp definitely.
