Magnificent shots. One, the third, looks a little soft, but the others look great.

3and 4 both the sun was on the right side and caused the soft effect. The sun wasnt my friend in either one of those. At least they cooperated and not all butt shots which normally happens.
Thanks for the 2 comments. jim

Great Eagle shots Jim We haven't had many clear days back east lately and alot of the Eagles seem to be going back to their homes. I might try in the am though, can't waste a day off!

Excellent in-flight shot. This is very hard to do.

Thanks for positive compliments, takes a lot of practice and that sigma 50 500 gets pretty heavy after whike hand holding it. Thank goodness for SR. One of the tricks to BIF is to set your focal point to mid range rather than center point. jim

Jim,


Nice captures. The finsihed product always looks easier to produce than the effort put in to capturing them. First to appear spot on. Congrats.

Stephen
