    OK, I'm without camera now for a few weeks, so you are all going to have to suffer with me. :cool:

    These are early morning shots from my trip to the dam with Chris last Saturday, when it was still very overcast, and light was hard to come by. I squeezed these out at ISO320 to 400, at shutter speeds of 1/500th, and an aperture of only f5. I kind of like them. :smile:

    Ready for take-off:

    Thanks for looking in. More to come from Card 2. :rolleyes:

    Oh great. Franks bored. Now we get to spend 2 weeks looking at his lousy reject shots that didn't make the first cut :rolleyes:

    Nice shots by the way. :smile:

    Hey Frank

    Excellent work....I can see that you have been getting up early when I see the color of the light :)
  4. Frank, excellent work. I see your bird shooting has improved a lot from post to post. Congratulations, my friend.
  5. The last two are really great. Nice color, focus, detail and composition.
  6. Frank,

    My favorite is #3 out of these series. Well done once again !
  7. Excellent shots, Frank. Very nice lighting at that time of day. I like no's 2 and 4 the best, although I know the flight shot must have been challenging with that low lighting.
  8. Not only great shots but that you managed to get that out of ISO 320-400 is amazing! NR?

    Thanks guys. These aren't rejects. I'm just going through many of them. I shot a total of 6 cards (4 1GB, 2 512MB), so I've still got quite a few to review (I get 275 to 285 shots / 1 GB card :smile:). I just picked the ones of the GBH eating the big fish first. Still plenty of decent ones to go. :rolleyes:
