    I like the first one best. The dove is kind of an odd perspective, making it's head look unnatural to me. I'm not sure what's going on with the last two. On my monitor it looks like the bird was pasted onto that background. It seems separated somehow.

    Compared to the earlier threads, this one is slightly off-putting. Like 1 only. Sorry.

    I tell you Otavio,

    Your lapwings are better than mine

    To improve these, there are some odd blades of grass peeking out from behind the subject in shots #1 and #4 I'd clone out if mine.

    Very nice though,

    Hi, Terri. Thanks for commenting. The "paste aspect" is due to the shallow depth of field and the high contrast level. If you look to the grass you will notice that only the bird "depth range" is in focus. Regards,

    Hi, David. Thank you very much. I will have in mind the suggestion of cloning the grass blades out. I appreciate it.
