Time flies...

Time flies...I hope you don't mind some constructive criticism... The tone and lighting are OK but a bird flying this close would not have such a sharp background. Better to shoot a bg out of focus first.... Secondly, it takes a lot of time and effort to cut out a bird, so the final pic has the potential to be quite valuable. But this bird has a really tattered tail - usually a sign of captivity... That spoils it rather. Like the watch idea - lighting is good on that.

GoldfinchThis is a really good portrait but would be almost impossible to expose correctly because of the very bright background. It has a good dof , is sharp where necessary and is a gorgeous subject. If the bird regularly visits (and you can encourage this with food), try to position your camera so that the big tree behind the bird blocks out more of the light. In that way, you should be able to get a more balanced exposure.

help needed

help neededthis appears to be a movement problem rather than a focusing one but you have no problems with the seascape... strange. Do you think you might have had the IS switched on while you were holding the camera so still against the rock? Sometimes, IS introduces problems when there is no movement to stabilise!!! A good idea would be to try another lens on the body and see if the same thing happens... Just a suggestion. Hope you get it sorted
