There will be days when you get the shot(s) you missed days, months or years before.

Eye under the wingtip and a deer fly on the lens I believe.

Nice Shots! The barn swallow is very impressive especially given how fast they move.

Very nice shot, Ted! I love the background.

And just when I think you've posted the best possible swallow in flight shot, you come back with one even better. Phenomenal Shalu!!

avondale87 wrote in post #18878372 (external link)
Agree. Can't add to that.

TedEllis wrote in post #18878707 (external link)
"POP" Great!

Thank you very much, Mike, Richard and Ted!

TedEllis wrote in post #18878710 (external link)
The crop a tad tight for my taste but a great shot still!

Thank you, Ted! I agree, but I didn't have a choice as the swallow almost flew out of the frame  :p This frame has more margin but a bit less detail

Guillemot (aka Common Murre). This is and example of the form known as 'Bridled' Guillemot in which the indented line behind the eye is white rather than uniform chocolate. It's still the same species though, not even a subspecies.

This is a marvelous swallow shot, Shalu.

Shalu, you mentioned that your other swallow shot almost flew out the frame. It is easy in photoshop to re-crop, and then use the content aware feature, to fill in the extra space you create by re-cropping. It comes out absolutely perfect. I use it frequently when my birds are right at the edge of the margin. It has saved many a shot that I would have had to toss in the old days.

Thank you so much, Mike! Also thank you for the tip of PS recrop. I always felt PS is too complicated and have so far stayed away from learning/using it. Maybe it is time for me to learn PS (I am paying for PS anyway with a package deal together with Lightroom).

Shalu...I'm certainly no expert in photoshop, but the "content aware" feature is absolutely amazing!! If for example you need additional landscape to continue beyond your margins, it's takes only a brief period of time to do. Give it a go...you'll be quite pleased. If you want, I'd be glad to talk you through it.

Canvas in the drop down. Add to whichever side you like and then use the content aware. Great tools.

I love the right angle wing position you have captured! And those eyes, looking at something!
