Took this a little while ago and have entered this shot into a couple of competitions but the judges dont realise this is just one red kite over 1/2 second. I have had comments like nice photoshop cut and paste or that I was lucky to have all the red kites pose for me. I judge even said the position of the birds wings looked wrong!
I am trying to show the movement of 1 red kite diving down on to its prey & shot this at 12 frames a second whilst tracking the red kite and then arranged them in photoshop in such a way that the birds head was always looking at the same spot. The only valid comment I have had is its a pitty about the cloudy sky!
I would appreciate comments and if any one can suggest a title which makes it easy to tell judges that this is 1 red kite diving I would appreciate it.
The shot was full manual and from memory the settings were f5.6, 1/5000 iso 2000 1dx & 100-400 lens
