These are really good shots for early attempts, Kevin. They seem plenty sharp. I still suck at it. lol
One thing you might try in your post processing is lifting the shadows on the birds. That way their eye might be more visible in the shots where the birds are back lit. Great job though Dude!
Thanks Paul and thanks for the advice, I don't know if it's me, being new to birds and trying to hold the big lens steady but I've been very hit and miss with eye focus, even on the static bird shots. It may be the focus problem that some folk seem to be having with this camera but I was that keen to try the camera and lens that I didn't test either before I actually went in the field. I'll have to run a test and see if it's the combo or just my inexperience with birds and/or me finding it hard to hold steady. A lot of my bird shots had the breast in focus so I think I'm dropping from the eye when I hit the button..........I'll have to dig out the monopod and see if that helps.
