you know Dave ; years ago photography was very complicated..light meters and other equipment needed..special flash gear..F-stops..shutter speeds....it took special skills plus a good eye....
today in the digital age all them special skills aren't really needed any more to take good pics....but it still takes a really good eye to take great pics like that.....
unfortunately i can't even get a decent pic of a fish...lol
i sure am glad the wife can...

breathtaking photos bud....you did good.

Amazing photos!

lohachata: you are not alone with not being able to get a really good pic of fish, I cannot get a good pic of my fish either.

Thanks,
I use a Canon 7D with various lenses. It is digital but it is a fully functional SLR. So I do get to tinker with all the settings. F-stop, Aperture, ISO, and all the others. My wife just approved the purchase of a new lens which I ordered today.

I have rented this lens twice now and love it. It has helped me get shots like these.









I guess I am also a airshow freak. I love the airshows.

looks like you have a fine camera there, good shutter speed the way youve captured the aircraft with no blurring and im presuming you didnt get too close to the hawk as it stayed where it was and not looking at you so the zoom keeps its quality, ive looked at some slr's and bridge cameras and the image blurs as you zoom.
overall loverly pics, well done

Thanks all, I would like to make it a full time job but as mentioned with easy access to PHD (Push Here Dummy) cameras there is a surplus of stock photos on the market.
Here is a shot from outside the Drake Hotel in Chicago. A hotel for the stars.

years ago when i was in the navy i found a little 35mm Emi-K camera.....actually took some pretty decent pictures of some of the Gemini space recovery with it and my kodak wind up 8mm movie camera...years later i got my first good camera ; a pentax 35mm..i think it was a 1000.....after it got stolen i bought a canon AE-1 Progran....it was a great camera and i have had canon ever since...
my first digital was a canon S2-IS.....my daughter dropped it so it quit working..then i bought a canon A590....many of the canons have an aquarium mode....i still can't take a decent pic ; but am very lucky the the wife can....hopefully in the future i'll buy a DSLR...it will be a canon most likely..either that or a nikon..then maybe a couple of extra lenses...but none as expensive as yours dave.....lol
without a doubt , you are an excellent photographer with a very good eye....
awesome pics..
