Very nice wildlife shot Mike, with good colour and some fine detail.
Constructive feedback always welcome! I did consider going portrait on this one and cropping in closer - will have another look later. Thanks GeorgeVery nice wildlife shot Mike, with good colour and some fine detail.
"I hope you don't mind me saying matey, I do think the composition of this shot is a little too much one sided and feel a bit of cropping from the right would improve it considerably. Obviously only my personal opinion"
Thanks Mike - today when out all the birds were in hiding due to the weather being a tad breezy to say the least so will try this on the jackdaws that keep visiting our garden. I'm also going to try the P mode which was mentioned in an excellent download on how to photograph birds in flight. Need to check that a bit closer though as it seemed that most things were automatic and I couldnt work out how to increase the speed without changing to shutter mode.Thanks Andrew - for small-ish birds I have been going with Aperture priority, f4, auto iso with minimum shutter 1/1000 - spot metering and centre spot focus
Nothing fancy and I am by no means an expert!
This is a big crop - maybe about 10-15% of the original image. The file file is around 2Mb which is pushing it as far as I normally would go.
