Love the first one. How do you get such nice flight shots?

That first one is beautiful. That white bird against the deep blue sky.* Man, that's nice.* Steve

Houston, great pics of a bird thats hard to expose properly. A little noisy though, I think running them through a noise filter would make them even better.

Hi Houston, nice to see your stuff again, and top of the class shots again. I like the second shot better, the exposure on the head is just that much more balanced, and also the shape of the bird reminds me of a paper plane. the space in front of it gives the perspective of it going somewhere [Hows all that for nitpicking critique :?:G]



Best regards from SA, I trust you guys are looking forward to the oncoming spring

Thanks Jim and one time I asked the very same question on this board. The answer I got was practice, practice, practice. And so I started going out to a local lake where the people threw bread crumbs for the Gulls. Thats about the best scenario I could find and practice, practice, practice I did. And I still trash more than I keep.:-DPlay with exposure and bracketing. Shooting a white bird against the sky will take a different exposure that shooting one with trees in the background.

Regards

Houston

Steve, Julie and 101, Thanks for looking in and glad you liked them. I haven't posted much lately. My work has kept me very busy since the holidays and I just haven't had the time to get out and shoot. I finally got out some Sunday and managed to get these two.

Hi Jake. You really know how to make a mans head swell up don't you. But it has been tough lately (working 12 hr days). The $ income is nice though and I'm thinking about maybe one day planning a trip to some faraway place where the birds plentiful and just having myself a blast.

And yes, I for one, am really looking forward to spring. Never did like the cold.
