Very nice! Are these small crops or did these birds fill the frame?

Stan,

Photo no. 3 was shot full frame. All of the other photos were shot using the 1.3 crop mode and then received additional minor cropping. The birds would circle low around our cottage before heading out to sea each morning.

Hi Chuck,

Your #4 is my favourite! Not because it is in anyway better
than the others, but just because of the dead front view!

EDIT: My son tells me that my choice of words may be
misunderstood! So I will try this way:
Your #4 is my favourite! Because of the dead front view!

Excellent, yet another demonstration of just how good the D7100 is and proof that non-pro or exotic lenses work very well. Great shots

Wow. I am new to this and those look great. I am looking hard at a D7100. How do you like yours.

I have the D7100 and a 70-300 VR that is almost stuck to my camera.

Could I just act dumb, and ask you to explain the details of how you setup to use "focus tracking"???

Understand, I am just acting dumb.

BTW, I like #3 the best because the sky is bluer, and the gamma is 2.2. Actually because it shows more of the features of the bird. I'm all about birds.

Charlie,

All the shots were taken using:

AF-C
AF Area Mode: Dynamic 51 point or Auto

I did not see much difference between Auto and the Dynamic 51 setting. Used the Dynamic setting most of the time.

Good Luck.
