p.1 #1 · Hummingbirds


Although I have been a landscape photographer all of my life I have always had a soft spot in my heart for birds. I just erected some hummingbird feeders in my backyard so I now have a place to photograph them. These are some of my first attempts and I think luck plays a bigger role than most would admit.

Critiques and comments are always welcome.

Nice job!

Really like the catch light on #1 and #3. Maybe a tad more space on the first one but still a dandy effort and the background really makes the pop!

Beautiful detail in this very fine trio of images Doug, well done.

My two suggestions would be to allow a little more room in front of the birds, especially seems a bit tight in #1.
Secondly, I like the color saturation best in #1. Colors seem a tad too strong for my taste in both 2 and 3.
My processing has evolved dramatically over the past year due in large part to feedback I have received from the very nice and knowledgeable folks here on the forum.
Bird photography is very addicting and has become a passion of mine over the last several years, I think you will really enjoy the adventure.

I enjoyed the set and hope my feedback will be helpful.

You have done a great job Don. Luck alone will not get your 3 like this.

Oh! Very nice...really great for natural light photos.

Good poses and great colors, though I might cut the saturation and vibrance down a bit on the second and third ones.

I agree with Morris.......these are NOT due to luck.
