Hi everybody!
This is my cotribution to the near misses, almost had it and would have been great gallery.
This would have been a great pic if: the bird was facing me and the white was not OE.
But I posted it anyway because this is my first in-flight picture.
I only did some croppind to improve composition, removed some noise and framed.
This is a pic of Larus Ridibundus.
I hope I will be back with some (great) improvements.

Thanks for stopping by!

Pare ca vrea sa iasa din poza. Poate daca mai decupai din partea de jos. Picaturile de apa parca nu reusesc sa compenseze incarcatura de sus a fotografiei. E reusita oricum. La viteza de fotografiere pe cai ai aplicat-o e super. Bravo. Numai bine, Cezar.

Gulls are a good bird to practice on flight shots for panning You will take a lot of shots what are no good but when you get one it is all worth it

Hi Cataline.
My first shots of white objects were more worse. As an in-flight picture this shot is done very well. Excellent exposure parameters. Only metering mode is selected incorrectly. Partial or spot modes are more suitable. Sharpness and details, richness of colours are very nice. My best wishes and TFS.

Excellent snapshot Catalin. Excellent coloured presentation. Picture is good arrected. Well done. Tfs. Stev
