a few shots of eagles in flight taken at the park near my house...
wow. amazing shots. #2 and #4 just blow me away. i'm jealous i don't have any wild bald eagles in this area.
i'm guessing you took these with your 100-400L?
Great shot(s)! I have to choose number 2... Crisp, sharp and powerful...
WOW! Nice shots. I would love to photograph one someday!!
yep... that lens is very good out to about 50-75 yards. beyond that, the need to crop starts to hurt IQ, and the AF doesn't seem to work as well. unfortunately, i can't afford the 600 f/4, so i'll have to make do with the 100-400 for a while longer...
Okay, I have a question for you, because I've run into this problem and haven't been able to fix it. How did you get an even exposure of the sky and the birds? I've always had to either blow-out the sky or end-up underexposing the bird. :-/
CPL? *suppresses his lens envy*
answer... judicious post-processing. most of these had little or no underside detail, but with careful editing, i can bring out some shadow detail without blowing the sky.
Nicely done, I love #1, my only problem with it is the obvious (presumably) exposure correction you had to do to it, showing major niose in the wings and body.
Blast. If I do the same on my 450D it brings in an incredible amount of noise. Maybe some better glass would help matters...oh well.
oh WOW, WOW, WOW 2 is great but 4 just takes my breath away!!:thumbup::thumbup:
These are great. #2 is a standout for me and just incredible. I've only seen a bald eagle twice in my lifetime, so being able to photograph one would be something special....good job.
#1 is really flat and has allot of noise, compared to the other images, looks asif this was taken with a different lens (but obviously wasn't)
