Hi everyone,

Here is yet another Osprey with a fish flying past.
This one was taken really early on when the light was awful. It's at ISO 1600 - so I'm quite impressed that the camera didn't show too much noise.

This was one of the first shots I got of the whole holiday, I think Smile

Thanks for all the comments and votes on yesterday's osprey. I'll be away this weekend (again) but I'll give you my edits of the first day's image on Sunday - hopefully.

Thanks for looking
Jonah

You have timed this shot so well and captured the bird with its catch so crisply. Very nice work, Jonah.

Great timing a really well taken action shot, you've managed to get the focus spot on which is not easy on a fast moving subject - poor fish

Excellent shot.

Loaded a mod with some things you might want to try; sharpened; toned down highlights; increased contrast; increased canvas size adding space right and top for a landscape crop.


Well done,


Regards


Willie

Definitely lacking a little contrast, but easily fixed as shown by banehawi.

Half way home! Decided it was not safe to drive all the way after another 4am start. So will be setting off to complete the journey early tomorrow. Shame I'm not still in Aviemore as I see they are doing some street boxcar type racing down the mountain road. Doh - that would have potentially been something different to photograph.
