Sandpipers (V1 + 70-300VR)
Sep 20, 2012

Hey gang!

In the spirit of keeping the forum alive, here's some pics lol!

These were taken last month at Sydney Spit BC. I had taken my V1 and 70-300VR for a walk on the beautiful beach there, and was confronted with many-a-sandpipers. I almost didn't bother trying to shoot them though because they move so fast. But hey, what else was I there for? So I got down in the sand and tried to catch a few of the beggers. Although I finally got the hint and cranked up the shutter speed, in hindsight, I probably should have gone even higher to get sharper images. The two images of the flock flying by was done using 5fps burst mode, and I was happy that the V1 managed to get more than a few images in focus. All shot handheld and NEF files processed in LR4. As usual, I didn't look to closely for sharpening halos etc - I'll do that after I click "post"

Any critiques or suggestions are more than welcome. Thanks.
