Taken at lake district wild life park.
i am not sure that both the eyes and beak are in sharp focus - this could be due to the focal length / aperture combination or (less likely here i think) possibly due to a minor camera wobble or movement of the subject
even thought the 3200 is a relatively basic camera, it should easily cope with higher ISO without introducing excess noise - as such 400-640 would allow a faster shutter (to reduce wobble) and/or a smaller aperture to give focus across eyes and beak. Similarly use of just a little negative exposure compensation would help.
apologies if this is stuff you already know, if not feel free to drop me a line with any questions.
on a note of purely personal preference, scroll the image up screen to reduce the 'headroom' by about a half to two-thirds and see whether you think it improves the composition (whilst not following traditional rules)
Thank you once again for your comments, i'm just a beginner at this game so i hope to learn from all your comments, went from a bridge camera to dslr.
Its a good effort at such a slow speed. I assume you used a solid support, as a henad-hels shot like this would need a shutter speed of 1/400th, and an ISO of around 800. In addition to Phils comments. the image is underexposed one full stop. This would mean, at it current speed and aperture, the use of ISO 400, which doubles the light. If theses a bright background behind the bid, its likely going to make the camera underexpose the relatively dark subject.
When I download it and do this, and crop from both sides and top to place the birds left (as we look0 eye on a third, and sharpen a little, its a really nice shot.
Give it a try if you can, it worth it.
stunning photo great shot like it. christinme
