    More Birds!

    Some random shots from my balcony.

    More Birds!

    I like the motion blur in the following one...

    The only change I would make in the crop to #3 is to put a little back in at the bottom so you're not cutting off the toes. But only a little bit is needed.

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Re: More Birds!

    The sharpness that you're showing on your bird shots are really great, Abhi. Your composition is also improving. The cropping seems to be too tight but still OK. I am not so sure as to how the two black borders on the top and bottom helps the shots but if that is how you want your images to have frames then it's just fine. I'm seeing a little color cast (yellowish from the sun's cast) that you can correct if you want. I agree with Bill on the 3rd image, I wish you did not crop the toes and you showed the full extent of the tail of the bird for a stronger composition. Still, these are very good shots for me. Great job!

    Thanks Bill & Jiro.

    & Hey Jiro, Its me.. Sahil
    You are so fond of Abhi, it seems
    I did crop the third image but not from bottom, that means the bird's toes were out of frame
    & Jiro, the yellow cast, I guess, isn't because of the sun, but may be my post processing. I tried giving it a different tone using Curves.
    Thanks for the feedback. I will try improving on these two points upon reaching home.

    My deepest apologies, Sahil. I am looking at my monitor screen using only my left eye right now. Hahaha! I still got the infection on my right eye. Kindly accept my sincere apologies, Sir.

    Sahil,

    I love the third shot: composition, bokeh and capture.

    Oh C'mon, Jiro. You don't need to. It happens. Even I have addressed people with different names.
    And wish you a speedy recovery...

    Thanks, Naseem.

    I second this. I really like the third shot, just need a little less crop to not get the toes clipped.

    Thanks, Jiro. I will post some of my bird shots for you in another thread.

    Nice photos, Sahil. #3 would be my pick too. Or #1 with slight brightening of the eye, maybe.

    Is better a wider frame because it allows you to crop if needed.

    I took this in a hurry coz this bird was kinda restless. We were sitting near the place where the bird was building the nest.
