    Nice sheen across the water...

    Yeah, shame the sky wasn't as interesting. Some colour in it, but no clouds.

    "Silver Gull - Somerset Ground - climb and maintain 10 feet - turn left heading 270 - and report over Dam Wall - good day to you Sir - oh and if you get the chance - please empty the septic tank over the old 4 wheel drive in the car park - owner is annoying the other birds in the pattern with his constant picture taking" :-)

    Ah, so that's why they kept flying over the truck...

    Very nice Dave!

    Nice. This is where the 600mm focal length comes in very handy.

    Thanks :)
    Best of an average lot really - still need lots more practice panning with birds in flight.

    Excellent focus, those raised wings are really good.
  • David de Groot said:
    Thanks :) I had a few passes to practice with and was firing off burst of three shots at a time. A lot the focus was out (need to hold lens steadier and on target), but this one came out nicely and as a bonus had some interesting colour in it too.

    that's cool - lovely pastel tones here and I like the composition too.
