    Couple of shorebirds: C&C

    Here are some the shorebird images from my archive I have processed during last week. Would like to hear on composition/exposure/post-processing. Any suggestion for improvement are most welcome.

    1. Pied Avocet (Handheld shot in Av mode @ f/8, 1/500, ISO 100; spot metering, PP in ACR/CS5)

    2. Black-winged Stilt (Handheld shot in Tv mode @ f/6.3, 1/500, ISO 100; spot metering, PP in ACR/CS5)

    3. Marsh Sandpiper (Handheld shot in Av mode @ f/8, 1/400, ISO 160; spot metering, PP in ACR/CS5)

    4. Red Shank with Black-tailed Godwit (Handheld shot in Av mode @ f/8, 1/400, ISO 160; spot metering, PP in ACR/CS5)

    Clean, sharp and simply beautiful.

    Minor issues - the white in the wing and tail in #1 is close to blowing. Perhaps bring that down a bit and check if there are shadows in that section that can be recoverd?

    # 4 - a very nice shot but somewhat spoiled by the bird in the background.

    Thanks Bobo.

    #1: Shooting B&H bird in broad daylight!!! Still learning and a long way to go. Will try reprocessing as you suggested.

    #4: The Godwit is not the real culprit as I was actually shooting him when the Red Shank came in between! And this is the only image of a Red Shank I have in my collection (till next winter).
