Ek is bly ek is die 1ste om te comment. Beautiful work in capturing these hadidas. The detail and sharpness is good. It almost looks like you were flying next to them - I know this is not possible becaus I know you are not an angel. Very well captured and thanks for posting.
I eat lots of high-energy food too!

I know how differcult it is to capture one flying bird. You took 2 flying birds, Oke the composition is not great, but the capture is okee, good freesing good colours, Een moeilijke klus, erg goed gedaan Gerhard.

Nice capture of a difficult subject Gerhard. I think if I had have been planing to shoot that sort of shot with my 300D I would have overexposed alittle so as to get the correct exposure on the birds. I usually underexpose most landscape shots BTW to stop blown out skies. Great note and post.

A great action shot.
Efficient shutting speed, wich freezes the move.

Lovely shot Gerhard, you did very well to get two in. I'm very impressed with the quality. Great work and excellent note as per usual.
This new camera is settling in well! (I'm still jealous and am considering talking to my bank manager for a loan!)

very nice Gerhard 2 nicely seen bird, you manage to do some thing I cannt manage to do so hats off to you.
Good shot! I really like the way you've managed to capture these two Ibis, the blue sky provides a lovely neutral background for them. Your composition is excellent too. The only thing I'd play with (if it were my shot) is the sharpening - it looks like you applied a bit too much high radius USM, and not enough low radius USM to me - there are haloes starting to form around the birds, but the feather detail isn't coming out. From the original try something like (10%, 20px, 0)(40%, 1.2px, 0)(20%, 0.8px, 0) and see if that looks better to you. Anyway, good note and well captured :-D

Like your pair just fine Gerhard. Perhaps a different time of day would've illuminated the foremost Ibis underside a little better..I found this note really good reading this time. Knew the basics of the aerodynamics of the wing but not the "birds" adaptation of it.. Very interesting! Thanx much.

This is a real good photo, although I do see some halos around the edges.
