No fault finding here. You snipped the tail a little but that is just fine with me. I know the rest of it is still there. Keeping the rear or tail near the frame is usually best. Others may say '' Pity about the tail '', but don't worry. That is just another opinion. TG
Hi Tony thanks for the comments
I was surprised to see the birds so close to be honest and there was also a third one close by and it looked as though the 3 were ready for take off so i took the photos a bit too quick i think,i also have another photo which i will upload tomorrow hopefully you could give some advice on that too.
I would prefer the birds fully shown, or closer and cropped tighter. One or the other. They look to be on fresh water, in which case, pass my gun. I like to see Cormorants, but on the sea where they belong.
Me too Paul
My local river has become home to quite a few over the last few years
I will upload another photo tomorrow of the 2 birds which i have cropped although 1 bird is slightly out of focus but would like your comments on the overall picture
Tow for the price of one...have uploaded a couple of mods..which shows the difference in the focusing
looks like i am join to have to start learning how to use lightroom etc
Thanks for the 2 mods
This post proves that for every photographer there is an opinion and that they are all different. Mine is as follows - its a shame that you have cropped off the wing of one bird and the tail of the other but to my mind the dynamic of the birds looking at each other is what counts here. I am nowhere near my computer at the moment or I would experiment with different crops, but there has to be a way of capturing this dynamic.
I think that the feather texture and detail you have here is wonderful. There, that's my two pen'orth!
Many thanks for your input Lynne
Not the place to discuss it, I know, but half a dozen Cormorants can kill several thousand fish in a fresh water lake in a couple of weeks. Do gooders are no help and there is only one remedy. Which has the most right to live, half a dozen Cormorants or thousands of fish.
The case for culling is strong.
