  6. Very nice. One of the best of the series.
     

  7. Thanks Anthony

    Really nice to hear from you.


    Thanks You Alex I'm flattered, but I like it!!!:redface: :rolleyes: 
     
  8. Great pose. A little bright - the higlights are blown on the whites. I shot a lot of eagles this spring and it is tough - I ended up using spot metering on the whites :) .

    Best,

    Gary,

    #2 is definitely exposed better. Did you shift your camera slightly for the 2nd one? That might account for the different exposure if you were shooting in AV mode. Either way this is a great image.
     
  16. Thanks Andy

    I believe I went from ISO 400 to ISO 200 on the second shot As he was sitting still and I could let my shutter speed drop.
