While at the park Sunday I decided to try and take some photos of birds in flight. Here are some of them. Any comments or advice on how to take better photos would be appreciated.

Hi Wolfsong,

Yes I did process them in Lightroom 4.4. I darkened the highlights a little, raised the shadows, and adjusted the exposure. Lens correction was applied too. The saturation, vibrance and contract were given a slight adjustment too. I also cropped them to make them look better.

I'm at work now so can't give you the exact levels of adjustments or the originals but can do so once home if you want.

Cujo

Sorry it took so long to get back to this but Ive been on the road again. I like the images. The only comment I would have, and its minor, is that if post editing is noticeable its probably been over done. I know in my pp work I make that mistake quite often and then go back to tone things bacm a bit. That's just my opinion however. If you like it that's really all that coumts.
