p.1 #1 · Wren ,Cardinal And DragonFly


Just a couple from a break in the rain today. 300mm with 1.4 TC really low light due to rain clouds.

I think the first is a Carolina Wren, please let me know if my ID is wrong .

Since you guys have taught me to pay attention to the background, and my lack of skills, keepers are few and far between

I wish the cardinal had not been deep in the tree.

As always your comments , suggestions, corrections and instructions are much appreciated.

Birdie



















First Dragon Fly This Spring !

Nice shooting, Birdie. The shape of the wren is a set of such graceful curves - you captured them perfectly. Love that dragonfly - maybe my fav of the set.

There are 'keepers' and there are the ones to 'present'. Just remember that some that are borderline may come in to play nicely as your PP work continues to improve.

It's just my opinion but I think tighter crop on #1 would work even better, nice look to this one.
#2 looks a bit underexposed to me and showing a bit of noise maybe, those reds are often flat without good light on them.
#3 precision focus with a very narrow DOF, love it!!

Really good stuff, Birdie.
Great perspectives and framing.
I'd prefer a bit more sharpening of the eyes and beak on the wren- but as you know, I'm a fussbudget on that .
