    Hi Y'all,

    The first day of the shoot saw some pretty lousy weather. It was overcast most of the day then the rain came. The poor light meant high ISOs and not a lot of contrast. I managed to get in a few captures.

    I'd say that you managed the conditions very well Harry. Very nice set.

    Nice shooting, Harry!
    I loved that shot with the snowy egret hitting the water. The reflection and overall action are great.
     
  6. Conditions or not you did very well on these shots Harry, only wish I were there.

    Thanks Luis. I just wish I hadn't clipped part of the reflection.

    A nice selection of subjects well exposed Harry. The weather was more than a little "iffy" that day and you did well. I passed on the REddish as he was pretty far out when I passed through.

    Thanks Dave, that weather on the first day was a real bummer.
