I am not a birder, so this is very much outside my experience.
Blinking may indicate that there's a low shutter speed, and you need to beware camera shake. I'm not sure, as I'm not a Nikon user.
As Moira says, nearly, but not quite square, and it upsets the calm mood... To my eye, even the central position of the people is fine: part of the almost-solemn, placid look.
I'd suggest starting again from a RAW file: get rid of the 'blown' bits by pulling them back a bit.
Beyond my screen and eyes, too. Downloading and lightening an awful lot, I can see the 'contour line' effect that sometimes occurs, but it's hidden way down in the deep dark tones, and it is all over the shot, not just in the areas you marked.

I keep finding pictures in yoru portfolio that make me insanely jealous... We live in the same world, but you see it far better than I do!
Some of the very best, the most creative, the most emotionally engaging work on the site.

Simply, the most consistently brilliant and perceptive portfolio on Ephotozine.
There are many good photographers on here. Some outstanding ones. But over the last few months, you've consistently posted work that is, in some sense, utterly alien, as well as being totally human.
No pressure, truly. If you decided to stick to unprocessed pictures of used car dealers for the rest of your life, you have produced better work than I ever will: I suspect I speak for a lot of other members in saying this.

Some lovely observations here - and all seen through a finely-tuned eye!

You have a rare talent, infusing every picture with emotion and resonance. You see the relationships between things and people, between thoughts and emotions, and yo ushare them through your pictures.

A portfolio that never disappoints. A long series of lovely views, beautifully shot.

I love Rhodes, and particularly Lindos.
This portfolio reminds me why I want to go back there for another holiday - the warm sun, the ancient buildings, the friendly people and the lovely food and wine...
George - you're so lucky to live there - and I am so glad you share the view!

Careful, hard-working and methodical. Beautiful and thoughtful results.

They say artists transform suffering into beauty.
You are a true artist.

Some lovely, old-fashioned reportage here. Zappy colour and a lack of time and thought are popular these days: this is a wonderful antidote - especially from a young tog!

You have a quietly stunning portfolio: better than some who are full-time pro dance photographers.
I've tried, once or twice, to photograph dancers: it is not simple, and doing it as well as you do needs knowledge, experience, and precise timing.
I shall keep looking at new work as you post it...

After months (years?) of loooing at and usually voting for your pictures, Dave, I've played around with one in Elements.
This has given me evidence for what I sort-of saw anyway - you are a technical perfectionist, and get tones, colours and sharpness exactly where they need to be.
I wish I could do that...

An exceptionally lovely selection of pictures, and all wonderfully seen and shot.
Not many people have such a good eye and such a sure touch...

It's hard to know what to say about your portfolio, Rebekah - you do, with complete assurance and a wonderful flair, all those things that usually don't work. For you, they succeed!
There are a lot of people who bring digital art into disrepute, and I never fail to comment to that effect. But I'm always humbled by the way that you do it so differently, and so well.
It makes me think that it may be valid for some people (though not me, obviously) to use digital instead of film, all the time.
Keep it up. It's wonderful.

Your portfolio is, simply, one of the best on the site. Consistently inventive, humane and technically just right - it deserves vastly more votes than it has so far.
Keep it up - it's inspiring!

Wonderfully varied portfolio!
