I decided to get into bird photography last April... these a few of what I think are my best shots.
Any constructive criticism would be great.
They're all great! You have good, smooth, backgrounds in general. DOF enough for the bird. Punchy colours without overdoing it.
The last one, which looks like an Eurasian Reed Warbler I shot a 2-3 years ago, could possibly be a little tighter.
Hi, Thanks for the suggesttion I've given that a go.. Think it has helped. N
I think so too. *thumbs up*
My experience with those birds that are rather grey (monochromatic) in their appearance, is that photos of them are more interesting if I can see textures on the feathers, or a hint of their eye colour for example. Either that or I back out totally and try to get them with a substantial part of their environment. I have a hard drive with numerous examples of not so interesting shots of these. I keep them to annoy me, and to make me do better the next time.
You're doing great and I look forward to see more from you.
