    I was hoping for the flip but no such luck.

    Well done. Nice handling of the whites. A tighter crop on the last one would make it even better.

    Thanky Gale and Hunter. I was shooting with the 300 2.8 + 1.7 TC and cropped a fair amount to get to the shots you see. I was lucky the pond was small and the birds not too shy.

    I think that first one would look great on my wall. (the photo, not the bird). great shots.
  6. Nice series Chris. Do I detect a blue cast on the first one? Or maybe it's time to calibrate my monitor!

    Thanks for the nice comments. David I think you are right about the blue cast. I warmed up the original and it looks better. I need to start remembering to use a preset WB with my gray card to fix this.
