    Very nice Glen. That first shot is stunning. What a great angle.

    Great shots mate!
    Are these with the 400mm then? Are they cropped at all?
    I'm always impressed with shots of birds in flight!

    #1 and #4 for me - excellent set all round

    How hard is it to get accurate exposures with the white bird against the dark backgrounds?

    Yes taken with the Canon 400mm 5.6 L, a cracking good lens:D.
    No. 1 & 3 are full frame, No. 4 is almost full frame and number 2 the bird was middle of the frame so I cropped a bit off the top right for composition.

    Well for me it's very hard, quite a few of the shots when I started were way over exposed :eek: ,especially the ones were the bird was small in the frame. So I used a bit of exposure compensation until I got them pretty close, then pulled then back a bit more in processing from RAW.

    That's right Mark, we decided to have a ride out for the day and ended up at Bempton Cliffs a great place for practicing birds in flight.
