Morning has broken

By andyward51
This was a point and shoot, and I am taking the first run of the ladder and changing my camera to a pentax kx to learn with, wish me luck. A tutorial would be a great help.

A good try. Crop the top a bit and possibly darken the window frame on the right. You need critical sharpness for such images and this is nearly there but not entirely.

You do need to be very careful with nest shots. You should never get too close and some birds are protected and a licence is required. However, I suspect these are Blackbirds.

A lovely shot as Paul said never get to close i have done some work on it for you just a bit of cloning to move the bit out of the way of the chick and to get rid of the fence hope you like.

Welcome to EPZ Andrew, and this is a nice start. Wont be too hard on you as youre new. When you ask about a tutorial, thats a big question. Theres are some essentials you need to know re exposure, focusing, composition, and the use of an image editor. Photoshop is the widest used standard, though if youre dipping your toe in the water there are free programmes, Gimp being one, IrfanView another, and some onlibe editires reviewed here:

Search the techniques section of the site; search Google for rule of thirds, and youtube for great videos.

Enjoy the site,
