This might worry Necip if he had your kit for the day!! (No offence Necip if your looking!!)
In my opinion this is pretty much spot on..The sharpness from wing to wing and all points in between is awesome...You had very little light and still got a super sharp picture at a slow shutter...
I see hidden talents blooming here!!
All the best mate

Great one with your new Sigma: well panned with good sharpness and caught at a great moment that makes this Canada Goose look really distaught.
Great lighting and POV too.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,

A fine in-flight shot indeed Paul, the motion is perfectly frozen, lighting is fair, so the amount of detail offered by the sharply focused bird is quite high. TFS and cheers, my friend!

Great action shot - very good detail - every feather is clear. These are one of my least favourite birds - in the UK - if you have tried walking on the grass in Poole Park you will know why!

Well well well
What can I say Mr Haynes, I take you out looking for Deer and then moan that all we see is a Canada Goose and then you throw this into the mix. A superb spread of wings that shows off a bird that is too often put downs true beauty.
We will reutrn to the same spot at dusk and the Deer will be aplenty.

Great action/flight shot Paul. This is really a majestic shot, lots of detail, colour and definition to it. It's rare to see such a full wingspan of a large bird in such detail, excellent work. tfs regards h

Hye Paul Haynes...You're getting real creative with your birds in flight there old chap...do they still say that in Jolly Olde' England...Old Chap? I think it might be from some ancient move I watched...ah well never-the-less... it is a swooping scape....very much looks as though it needs another 800 pixels to the right before it crashes into the side of my monitor!

So what if this is not a seascape? :) It's still a beautiful shot!
Funny thing is, now that i broken my Sigma 70-300, you started posting photos taken with yours :))
But seriously now, this is really a great, crispy clear in-flight and it deserved to "see the light". The pose of this goose is superbly captured here and the exposure - although very difficult - is well controlled.
Spot-on DOF to keep the entire wingspan in full focus and good composition with plenty of room in front of the bird.
Good luck for more, mate!
Bravo and TFS

Very nice in-flight of this Canada Goose, Paul!
What a superb pose with the wings outstretched and the mouth open.
A dynamic composition and decent POV.
Great use of the light.

Good capture in the flight with lots of details.

Wow, Paul! What a great action shot of this flying goose! Excellent details of the wings and how interesting to see it calling!
Was it shouting for other geese to wait for it, or just a here I come call?

Hello again Paul, this is a great shot once more! Even though I am a fan of your beautiful seascape, this picture clearly demonstrates your ability and skills photographing. I wish I could capture such a lively movement from those great birds. Thank you!

Great to see an inflight from you, a nice change of pace..
Although I see you did squeeze some water in there ;}
Well composed frame, the birds pose and open-beak R great.
Nice details/DOF, and a well managed exposure. It looks like it was a bit overcast?

Well, as I see this time something really different :) But very interesting too. Bravo for timing - the goose looks like calling you ;) Very nice sharpness, natural light and colours.
All the best from Lodz,

Although i would always love to see a landscape shot from you, this one is a true photographer's attempt...believe me, in-flight shots are a dream for so many of us and congratulations on making it to the good grades with this one:).
I think you had some trouble with the lighting as the light fell on the other isde of your subject.The span of wings you have cpatured is impressive and who knows you would soon be getting a great one with an eye contact.But hey, dont stop giving us your mastercrafted landscape shots.:)
Good Luck and TFS
P.S:How 've you been?

Great inflight of this Canada Goose. From your notes I would say the goose minding his own business is a male and his mate is sitting on a nest near by. This is the cause of the territorial defence he put on the other goose. Great camera work Paul, You are a man of many talents.

A lovely in flight capture of a Canada goose. I am not sure if it is a Canadian,Canada goose,they have naturalized so many places now lol.
The plumage detail is very good especially the spread out wings.
Well composed in the frame,I can hear the loud honking !
