Flying in the snow 2 by phalalcrocorax Flying in the snow 2 by phalalcrocorax
Not the sharpest picture ever (the focus is in the back of the bird), but I am sure it is the best picture I have done during winter period. I really like the pose.

Picture done in Paris

And thanks again for all your replies. I will answer to most of them soon ;-)

Merci beaucoup.
Mais pour tout dire, le matériel aide quand même pas mal (énormément à vrai dire).
Le couple 7D + 300 2.8 fait des merveilles à ce niveau là.
J'ai quand même fait plus de 1800 photos pour obtenir cette image. Et encore, elle n'est pas parfaitement nette.
Si tu connais le festival de photo animalière de montier en der et que tu y passes cette année, tu pourras t'en rendre compte (elle y sera exposée en 50-75).
Après, ce n'est que de l'entrainement, de l'entrainement et encore de l'...

1800 photos, ça reste peu tout de même. En Ecosse, j'ai eu des journées à plus de 200Go de photos. Le numérique permet de tenter sa chance à l'infini. Donc pourquoi se priver. Surtout que ce genre d'images contient une bonne dose d’aléa.
Mais cela se paie par moment, avec des boitiers qui ne résiste pas à une telle activité (mais bon, le 7D par exemple est garantie pour 200 000 déclenchements.

Et les seuls cours à prendre, c'est de la pratique :D

ah ok je n'avais pas capté :stupidme: mon nouveau Sony a 550 a une très grande capacité également mais peut-être pas à ce point ... quoique les Sony ont rattrapé leur retard =D

et oui comme pour tout :)

Clair. Sony, Canon, Pentax, Nikon... peu importe. Ils font tous de merveilleuses photos et tiennent bien la route. En général, ce sont les boitiers avec une rafale modérée qui tiennent le plus la longueur de ce que j'ai pu observer (mon 350D en est à 286 000 déclenchements et fonctionne toujours !!!)

Sinon, le mieux reste aussi d'avoir un très bon spot pour ce genre de PDV, permettant de tenter sa chance en continue. Personnellement, c'est le bois de Vincennes dans Paris. J'y suis passé ce matin sans tenter de vol, mais comme tous les jours, les pies étaient là et se sont préparées à voler dès mon arriver :D )

Toujours pas le temps de poster des images... disons que quand il faut choisir entre sorties (même sans matériel et sous la pluie) et traitement d'image, le choix est très vite fait :D

In fact, I tried to make a 75*50cm print with this shot and it seams to be good ;-) So it is not a good idea to check the focus on a large screen :D
