Another One

By albi  
Sorry its another Barn Owl, I've had a look through my archives and found nothing else that's worth uploading... :-(


This was another shot that I got with the new settings I put on the camera to help keep the focus lock when tracking these birds in flight.
I was quite pleased with this one, not for the quality but for the angle of the bird and the wing spread.

TECH: 1/640 F 5.6 EV -1 ISO 320

Cloned out a couple of weed heads in the bottom of the image and gave it a run through neat image, little bit of noise in the dark b/g

Thanks for looking

Excellent capture, good exposure and detail.
I could just sit there and watch these flying in the wild for hours.

Tony,

Stunning capture. Sharpness is outstanding and the exposure is spot on. That lens is a cracker.

the tips of the winge are a bit soft but it adds to the feeling of motion, good capture
