    Wow! These really pop out at you! Very nice. I like the top one the best. Sorry, no idea of what type of bird it is. Very well exposed and nice depth of field.

    Re: Springwood

    I like #1, too. The 2nd one could use a little extra sharpening to be in the same level at the 1st one. Nice work, Beehole. Now, you have to tell us your first name! Let me guess... would you be by any chance "BRYN"?

    Jiro, I am fairly new to this photography lark and to be honest I posted them on NEM and received some good advice on how to improve the original shots .I followed the advice and that is what I came up with .I tried a bit more sharpening on the Tit but I did not like it.I have viewed a fair bit of your work on NEM ,very impressive .

    For some reason, Blue Tits are very difficult to get sharp; I reject most of my photos of them. Possibly, they are simply so small and soft, and quick so the camera doesn't autofocus well on them. Most of my few successes have been with manual focus.

    In this case, I suspect that a little bit of extra selective sharpening applied mostly to the head area may be an improvement.
