Great pics!

I especially love the eagle in flight.

The course really motivated us to take more pics. We even went to the zoo and tried to shoot 'normal' animals in a better framed and interesting way. That is sooo difficult!

Hi Ellen,

Thanks  :)

Good to hear you got inspired and went to try things at the zoo. As you found out, a zoo is not the easiest place to get interesting shots of animals. For one there's a lot of unnatural things in the background. But then their behaviour too is “dulled” due to the captivity. I rather photograph animals in their natural habitat and behaviour. That's not always easy either though…

Hello Hayo,


Very nice action shots!!
 For me, the eagle and the eagle-owl are the best shots. I think the post-processing of the eagle-owl was difficult because of the back-lighting of the owl.
Very nice work.

Hi Rob,

Thanks  :)

Actually the post processing on the eagle owl was minimal, I think I only adjusted the exposure slightly to finish it off.
