I think this is my 1st posting in "Nature & Wildlife" category. We have sizable number of birders (photogs) here with mostly lovely shots. Thot of sharing some birdie pictures that I took recently.
1. Floating thru the air
ISO400, 1/200s @ f/4.5 on Partial metering. 200mm focal length
ISO400, 1/320s @ f/2.8 on Partial metering. EV -0.3, 180mm focal length
3. Zoom... Zoom... Zoom...
ISO400, 1/200s @ f/2.8 on Partial metering. 165mm focal length
4. Looking for food
ISO400, 1/200s @ f/2.8 on Partial metering, 170mm focal length
All the above were taken @ Ras al Hamra, Oman. I was standing near the edge of a cliff, thus i cant get any closer to the subject. I had to remind myself not to step forward... Earlier in the year some one died (at another location) when he accidentally fell over the cliff trying to take group picture.
Major cropping done during post process to enhance the composition. Appreciate your thoughts on how to improve when taking pictures of birds in flight.
