Sandwich Tern (Nearly all of it!)

    Newer Older

    It must happen to all of us at some time? You take an image that you know you are going to be really pleased with.Then when you get home you find.... not all of the bird is in the frame/it's overexposed/the background is too fussy etc. etc....well folks here is that image!

      This is still a brilliant catch Tony, well done. ..... perfection is to be strived for .... not necessarily attained :)

      I'd say shooting a moving subject like a bird is normally quite difficult to get spot on anyway Tony, far more difficult than a static landscape of course. It looks here if the light is quite bright? A more ambient light would have helped to avoid clipped hilights? Or if the tern was facing the opposite direction, then you would have got the eye too. Anyway far too difficult for me, takes a lot of patience to shoot birds and get them bang on.

      Regardless of all the points you've raised I love this shot, it might not be technically perfect but it is real life, the action of the subject is more important in this case. Nice one!

      We can always find faults with our own images. But sometimes we have to take a step back and look at things with new eyes and say AWESOME...

      Great image, you've really captured the turn of the wing. You can catch the gleam in the eye of its prey. Awesome.
