Told you I had one or two more.

Thanks for all the UAs, GEA, HCs and EC on recent uploads. All appreciated. Though funnily enough my favourite shot with the backlit tail did not do as well. Probably because the thumbnail is less prominent.

Settings: ISO 1600, 1/800th @ f/5.6

Thanks all. Hard to fail with such a photogenic subject. The only issue was that generally when the light was perfect, subtle yet plenty of it generally the birds did not dive. They tended to dive early in the sessions when a high ISO was required.

Thanks Karl for the GEA, it must have gone on whilst I was posting the last comment, so initially I missed it. Most appreciated.

These are superb images and show something few of us ever see. I'm curious about the backgrounds though as they look too good to be true. Just wondered if they are manipulated?

This background is simply created by the colour of the early morning light. Only manipulation was to clone out the reflection of a post, which was extremely distracting, but I knew that when I took it.

Thanks all
