Whimbrel's in Flight

I was fortunate in that I was able to anticipate these Whimbrel’s would likely be flying my way.

Allen: Nice frame. I like that there’s no overlap with the 4 birds. Nice environment to help convey the story.

Very nice job, Allen. It’s nice to see them in flight and I like the depth of field with the surf showing so clearly to provide environment.

Hi Allen,
Nice catch of the four birds in flight and sharp. I like the surf as a setting for them. I might try backing off the contrast/sharpness some - image looks slightly crunchy to me.

Excellent job in getting all for these birds and focus. You pick the right depth of field to show their current environment. I like that the wing positions are not all identical and the flight pattern has a slight diagonal approach.
