Had a recent trip to a Seabird colony in East Yorkshire.
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.
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 ,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.
Excellent Photos Glen, I know how hard it is to get a decent photo of a Gannet flying post.
I am guessing you went to Bempton ?
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.
