Practice, practice, practice. :-)

It took a while but now I'm pretty happy with the number of keepers I get.

There are some BIF shots over on my Instagram. Scroll down a bit for the eagles. Some of them don't look very good on a PC but I blame that on the IG cropping tool instead of doing the cropping in PS/LR. :lol: I figured that out the hard way.

Same here. But if I put the bead on the bird, it works fine.

If you click at the link, you can see quite a few BIF.

Some of the photos I took from the Commemorative Air Force (Houston Chapter) Air Show last weekend. There were many guest planes from other CAF chapters and some later than WWII.

But I always get a thrill listening to them revving up for take-off.

Some recent shots from the Fort Wayne Museum of Art. Somehow they were fortunate enough to attract "lowbrow" artist Robert Williams for a three day appearance and a big display of some of his most recent work. And the museum itself was the perfect place to shoot with the EFs 10-18.

I'm getting more comfortable using the free download of DxO Pro9. And I'm still stunned by how easily and how well it works for bringing out shadow details.

A few months ago I went to shoot some eagles and was very happy with the number of keepers I got.

Fast forward to yesterday......... I went behind my house to a nearby Osprey nest. It was windy out so their flying was quite erratic. The AI Servo failed miserably. At times I was hitting BBF and it wasn't​ even able to get focus. Other times it did a bit better but checking over my photos the images were still pretty soft even with 1/2000 - 1/2500 shutter speed.

I'm thinking a 7D2 might be closer​ in my future than I originally thought.
