Ducks trying to land on ice! Not as sharp as I liked but it looked pretty funny.

I pulled #2...would have been a super nice image if it was focus....:headslap:

Nice shots. The second image is a big too out of focus, however, my eyes cant find any point of focus in it. I like the composition in these though. The first image is nice, could be a bit sharper I think. Overall, well done on capturing sliding ducks!

Yeah, the majority of these I took today were just complete junk....too under/overexposed, out of focus soft...you name it the list goes on. Haven't had a day with so many such poor shots for a while... :wall-an: :wall-an: :headslap: :headslap:

Don't feel too bad, it happens to everyone once in a while I think. :(

The one you captured here is kinda cool though so it all works out :D

It looks great to me. And sharp enough for moderately sized prints. Or just print on canvas and it'll look great. And focussing on scene's like this is really hard, so you've quite a good job in my opinion. :)

She actually bumped into another duck on landing TT. There were many of them doing it but most of them didn't turn out as I had the shutter speed too low. They looked like float planes trying to land. :)
Will go and give it another go tomorrow perhaps. :)

Here's another shot...it's not very good but you get the jist of what is about to happen....lol! :eek:
Again too slow a shutter speed to get a perfect shot. :headslap:

These are way cool, and very interesting, though I agree, it's disappointing when you want it tack sharp and it isn't..
