Goose in Flight

This is an example of monochrome treatment processed in Tonality Pro. Taking birds in flight, (BIF to the professionals) is a skill, and while certainly easier with large birds, still requires some practice and the right settings. It helps to use fast shutter speeds (1/1600th of a second here in this shot) and a good aperture (F6.3 in this case) with your zoom not quite at maximum. I do not use the dynamic tracking focus system in my cameras but I do use image stabilization on the lens. You are still going to have to move and track the bird and only if you are lucky get a fast steady shot with some panning. This shot stood out for me because of the reflections in the water and on the bird itself.
