    Flamingo - Camargue

    A small Series of flamingos. Pictures taken in the Camargue, a nature reserve in southern France.

    Your feedback is welcome.

    I like the color and DoF usage but I think they could be cropped much tighter. I find that dark band at the top of each print somewhat annoying because I can't make out what it is, might be or should be...it's just a random dark line that doesn't fit the rest of the scene.
    I like #1 and #2 better than three but as I said earlier, there is way too much dead space to suit my tastes. (I am suspecting you were quite a ways from these guys, given the image compression.)

    I suspect that, with care, you could manage a little more in the way of brightness here.

    Like you, Chris, I would have cropped a bit tighter; although having a plain 'border' of background does seem to be something of the modern style.

    I think I understand your critics (except for some terms. Example: DoF. I'm sorry I'm French). Thank you for your critics.

    I have three pictures modified framing tighter, another composition of the image.

    DoF is an acronym for Depth-of-Field.
