like it, i cant manage to capture these at all. There does seem to be some loss of detail on the underneath of the wing and tail, have you tried to lighten them? lesley

Nice shot Alan, although in lightening the underside you have introduced some noise. But hey you can't please all the people all the time Smile

Beautiful inflight capture. The only time I have managed to get to Gigrin was on an overcast and a very dull wet day. Unfortunately all my shot were silhouettes. I'd love to have got a shot like this.

To be honest with you I was mostly disappointed with my shots from Gigrin - although they looked fairly sharp on the back of the camera whenI got home and transferred them on the pc they were full of noise...so much so that I took the 50D into the camera shop and asked they send it back to Canon for inspection. Thing was though we did some shooting from the shop with different lens and it showed no apparent noise and a couple of the shots I showed them from my card were printed with processing and no noise showed up?? Did think of moving up to the 7D but reports of softness have put me off that idea and I can't think the noise issue with the same sensor and MORE pixels is really going to be better?

This really is a very excellent capture. Timing is spot on and wonderful detail on the face. A small amount of noise on the wing but for me it does not detract from the shot at all.
