Thanks all bro for kind comments and helping to ID. I did some google dig, best guess 7 & 8 should be Little tern. ;)

Btw, anyone do think the blue sky background of #1, 3, 6 looks weird, probably due to overly Post Processing from RAW? :think:

Nice shots. Great contrast. A bit of purple fringing though.

Thanks bro. purple fringing? hmm.. probably this is what my friend complaints on above pics. Is it due to the nature of the lens itself or anyway to prevent it? :think:
