A nice set Mirek. 5 and 9 are my picks. Generally it's better if the subject is flying towards the camera, but 1 is eye catching for me ~ Ron

Hey Ron, I included #1 for its creamy background, and the wings' patterns that seem to be visible.
To me it's more artistry rather than biologically documenting
Thank you for pointing out things you don't like.

Nice set, with #5, 8, & 9 being my faves. Lots of color in the last one. Duck shot is pretty cool.

Nice bunch of shots. 9 is super and I like the pp on 1, but they're all good.

Glad you liked #1 — almost no PP, straight from camera
cheers

p.1 #9 · 9 birds from Centennial Park


Not sure about the comp in the first two, Mirek, but I like the moment you captured.
#5 has the best impact of the set.
The last one is the most pleasing to the eyes.
Beautiful lighting in #3 and 4
#8 is a cool capture. It could have more impact if the eye was visible.

I'll try to respond with the understanding of all the comments you have made Mirek.
1 I can see the artistry, it is a nice moment and the background rocks. The shot tells a story
2 I don't see the artistry, to my eye the shot is awkward
3 & 4 even though both are going away the strong eye redeems them, I like the bisected background and the techs look good
5 yes a big bird! You did an admirable job with the lighting and its nicely detailed
6 lets just say I don't see what you are seeing
7 my pick of the bunch even though I am subjected to a couple of scrums a day Maybe crop off some on the right and add to the left if you can
8 I like the chaotic action but it lacks a strong focal point
9 I love these guys, this one may have benefited from a higher vantage point so that you would lose some of the foreground stuff

There you have it Mirek, the rambling thoughts of a software engineer taking a break

#9 is fine. How can you not pick a bird with that many colours! Don

Mirek, I'm not going to tell you the ones I don't like.
However, I do like 1,3,5,7,9
#5 is my pick. Love the light and the details look great.

To me, it was the visual effect, the colours and the patters, not as much the subject


#5 has the best impact of the set.

thank you


The last one is the most pleasing to the eyes.

I agree, the rainbow lorikeets are just that ...


Beautiful lighting in #3 and 4

I pays to wake u early


#8 is a cool capture. It could have more impact if the eye was visible.

... but it is ... may be not enough!

Thanks for visiting and comments.

1 I can see the artistry, it is a nice moment and the background rocks. The shot tells a story
2 I don't see the artistry, to my eye the shot is awkward
It's not the best shot in my view. I chose it for the patterns but perhaps not strong enough.



3 & 4 even though both are going away the strong eye redeems them, I like the bisected background and the techs look good
5 yes a big bird! You did an admirable job with the lighting and its nicely detailed

thanks!


6 lets just say I don't see what you are seeing

I see Micheal Kenna style of imagery


7 my pick of the bunch even though I am subjected to a couple of scrums a day Maybe crop off some on the right and add to the left if you can

I prefer the scene the way it is as I wanted to retain the branch at lower right.


8 I like the chaotic action but it lacks a strong focal point

I felt empowered and inspired by Art Wolfe ideals here ... strong patterns, your eyes are led from the wing to the head of the duck buried in the splash


9 I love these guys, this one may have benefited from a higher vantage point so that you would lose some of the foreground stuff

Agree—will ask her to wait next time
