I know in-flight shots ca nbe a pain from time to time, especially when nature's conditions are working against you.
Even so, i think you managed a pretty good job, having this very nice albatros portrait here. The colors are very beautiful, the POV great and the light excellent.
Bravo adn TFS

Oh to be able to take a shot like that! Even though it was a slide it doesn't seem to have suffered from the scanning.
TFS, regards, Ivan

What an amazingly close-up view of an albatross in flight, Jacob.
A rare treat.
Great POV with sharp details.
TFS. : )

Nice capture of a remarkable bird. Must have been extremely hard shoot in force 8 conditions with your rig. Exposure and colours are good. I'd probably clean the dust spot in PS using the clone tool to improve the image. The hit rate with these kind of conditions makes me glad I'm now shooting digital. 200 slides is a bunch of money!

Really great, but a bit of dust cleaning, noice reduction and sharpening would improve this photo a lot! Paul

Nice picture of this bird but personnally, I think that I will prefer to have the whole bird (wings and tail) within the image. There are also some spots (dirt???) on the picture which looks to me very noisy... I think that the use of an Noise Remover software like Neat Image could help here. Anyway, good capture for it is not easy to get a picture of a bird flying. TFS,

Hi Jacob, I have never seen or heard of this albatross. And living in Auckland I don't expect to see one up here. I did visit the albatrosses in Dunedin a while back, but they wren't this type.
This is excellent, considering the conditions you were shooting in. What an impressive bird he is.
And reading the other's critiques I would ignore those commenting about the noise and getting the whole bird in - they can't have read your notes. I think you have captured a wonderful bird here, and you show it as it was,
