    Antonio, I really like #2 and #3 although #3 could stand a tighter crop I think. Nice detail in that one.

    I have never seen #1 or #4 before, interesting birds and all nicely colorful. In #1 it could use a bit more room on the right side infront of the bird and less behind. In #4 the background is a bit busy, I know sometimes that can be a chore.

    Bobo, Otávio and Jeff,
    Thank you very much for your encouraging words!

    Paul,
    Thank you for your feedback.
    You're right, but unfortunately, there is no more space available on the right side of photo # 1.
    In the case of photo # 4, the large DoF, caused by the small sensor, is responsible for the background to be somewhat busy.
    I will try to fix with PP.

    Beautiful birds, nice images Antonio. In post processing image #4 you could use an adjustment brush to Dodge (lighten) the bird while Burning (darkening) the background. This would make the birds stand out from the background.

    Paul,
    I found the original file and I made a new crop that followed your suggestion. Really, the new composition is better than it was previously.

    Thank you very much for your suggestion.

    Antonio.

    No worries, tis what we all come here for. Yes, it does look better now. He now has a little more room for forward momentum. I like being able to see the water rings a little better as well. Good job.

    Joe,
    I followed your suggestion. Really, with the background darker (and blurred) and the bird with lighter colour, , the bird was highlighted.

    Thank you very much for your suggestion.

    Antonio.
