Hola Narayana, excelente encuadre del ave y sobre todo un gran fondo. Creo obligado decirte que como en algunas de tus últimas fotografías, el enfoque al motivo principal no es muy preciso aunque en esta toma es menos evidente que en las anteriores capturas tuyas. No se el motivo.

Un abrazo: Josep Ignasi.

Hi Ganesh, splendid flying bird, perfect focus, good colors, great details and excellent sharpness, very well done, ciao Silvio

Hi Narayanan,
I can only imagine how difficult this must be. That's why I stick with landscape. You did a pretty good job on the pan action but it looks like you just missed it. The legs are sharp but the head and body aren't. I can't give you much advise on how to do it. Other than what I've read so far. I believe setting your AF to all spots at once might help. Also continue your pan move after the shot helps.

Hello Ganesan,
Beautiful inflight photography with excellent sharpness, details & POV. The panning done by you is unique. TFS.

Hi Ganesh nice photography of moving bird in low light situation. Well done Regards - Adil.

Ciao Ganesh,
bella immagine di Cavaliere d'Italia catturato con buona definizione in una bellissima postura di volo, ottimo BG neutro, per una maggiore nitidezza forse ci vuole un tempo più veloce di 1/320 con focale 300 mm., se non c'è molta luce conviene usare ISO400. Se cerchi di ottenere un effetto panning vanno bene i tempi lunghi, anche più lunghi 1/320.
Una bellissima prima cattura in volo.

Hi Ganesh,

I keep trying with my camera but have a hard time getting anything worthy to post. I would be happy to get one like this. Nice colors, great wing positions, good details. Not perfect but certainly an excellent first.

Hi Ganesh,
a great in-flight shot of a Black-winged Stilt.
Very good composition.
Great pose.
For better sharpness, you could put the ISO up a bit higher to get a shorter shutter-speed. ISO 800 usually works well.

Well done,
