Crows in Flight

Crows in Flight by NeilS

A good attempt but unfortunately they don't look as sharp as they could be and the added catchlight in the eye looks a little unnatural. I like the wing-up and wing-down pose in the first shot but feel that it would work better had the upper bird been a little more in focus as it tends to catch your eye first before leading the viewers eye to the lower bird.

It's actually a hind (female Red deer) rather than a Roe deer.

A good pose, perch and background but a little overexposed. Easily corrected though.

I love the way the squirrel is spotlit here and the lighting really brings out the texture and detail in the animals fur and the bark of the tree.

Doesn't get any better than this Jon and what a stunning setting too.

Alfie

Alfie by MossyOak

Excellent pose caught mid stride and the eye contact is an added bonus. Is it a large crop? If not, it looks like the focus is slightly off and you've tried to compensate by applying too much sharpening, this has given a very 'gritty' over-sharpened look to the image, most evident in the grass surrounding the dog. Assuming the dog is sharp in the original image, a better option would be to reduce the level of sharpening applied, and preferably apply it selectively to just the dog. Just my 2 cents for what it's worth.

The sharpness and pose is good but unfortunately it's a little over exposed resulting in blown whites on the birds face. Also, it would be worth trying to keep the lard more concealed if possible, giving a more pleasing and natural looking result,IMHO.

I like the pose and the placement within the frame works quite well. I'm not so keen on the elevated viewpoint looking down towards the deer and would have preferred a more eye-level viewpoint. You've also got a strange dark halo around the top edge of his nose.

Roaring Stag

Roaring Stag by rontear

Good one Ron. The dark and moody feel works well and the brown bracken gives the image that autumnal look.

Great result. Pin sharp and the foliage lower left sets the scene perfectly.

Quote: Can I ask if you use any flash equipment? I seen to get a lot of noise with the 40D and our low light conditions.

I own a Canon 580EX flashgun but I only generally use it for fill in flash, usually when photographing birds. I rarely use it as the sole light source as I much prefer natural light, in most instances.
I'm not familiar with the 40D but I would have thought noise levels shouldn't be too bad up to iso 400 and possibly even higher.
The secret is to ensure your exposures are as accurate as possible as lightening an underexposed image at the processing stage can cause image degradeation through excess noise.
I can recommend using one of the excellent noise reduction software programs, I use Neatimage and can highly recommend it.
