Its quite nice Samantha.

A little overexposed, and it looks very nice with the exposure reduced, and the white balance a little warmer, as in the mod.


Regards

He looks good but,although it is hard, think about the background. That spike of pale grass dead centre is pretty dominant. The bench is pretty bright in places, too. Getting everything right at the same time is the trick. Is there a more natural area you could use for the food, out of direct sunlight?

Thanks for your comments. I'll have a look around the garden and see if there is a better location. I see what you mean by over exposed. I forgot I had done this on purpose so that he would be brighter.....perhaps i went a little ott lol

A nice pose, especially with it holding its lunch!
We all get pale images now and again, but Willie's mod shows that all is not lost here.

Do think about the background of your images. As important in wildlife shots as people.
You may have several locations in your garden that you can shoot from, and/or position a feeding station. By that I don't mean anything elaborate, it just means where you place the food.
I have both a tray and a post in the garden that I move around. Regular visitors are used to it.

In fact, apart from those pieces of grass, the background here is not that far off, just enough to provide some environmental information without being distracting.

Thank you for all your comments. The difficult thing is there are particular places the animals feed and I'm not sure they would follow me else where. Also we have a lot of ants so sitting in the grass for hours on end is not a option lol However I have weeded around the deck to get rid of any of these distractions in the future Smile As you say though Keith perhaps investing in something that is portable would be a good idea.

The problem is the lighting. Too bright on the background. Yoi could try some burning in, but, ideally, different lighting or a different location. I have feeding areas around my garden and i feed in the area that will have the best lighting if I am going to try some shots.

Ok I also have to work harder on getting my exposure and white balance correct. Also background. Thanks for the feed back
