Skimmer Evening

Discussion in 'Birds' started by Jose Suro, Jul 18, 2007.

  1. Hi All,

    Had a super time last night with some friends at Ft. De Soto. We shot skimmers in sunset light. A really tough shoot!! Had to shoot at ISO 800 and the light varied from 1/4000 to 1/320 second, depending on where the birds were.

    Thanks for looking.



    D200 - 200~400VR - F4 ISO 800

    These are fabulous, Jose. IMO the first should be published or entered in a contest. I was just looking at the winners of the annual contest sponsored by Wildlife Refuge magazine and your image could well be in that group. (BTW, Jim Fenton won an Honorable Mention. Congratulations, Jim!)
  14. Thanks again everyone!! Much appreciated :) .
