    Brilliant set, lovely model and the lighting is spot on.

  • Robin, second attempt

    A good shot but as said its a little soft, that could be from shooting at the max aperture on the lens as most are sharper around F8, 1/400th second with VR engaged should be enough to eliminate camera shake, at least it is for my shakey hands on my set up, so I wouldn't think it was that.

    I always focus on the eyes then quickly recompose the shot depending on where the bird is looking, in this case I would have placed it to the left a little so you can see more of the area its looking towards.

    Another thing I have found helpful is getting old branches and twigs, then placing them in the places where the birds tend to land or sit.
    In this case you could probably jam a small branch in the top of the metal fitting, this gives a much more natural looking shot.

  • Hen in evening light

    Thanks for your kind comment Lillian, I think sparrows are an under appreciated bird, I'm lucky to have a healthy resident population here, they just captivate me.

  • Collared dove in flight

    Thanks Tony & Lavina, you might be surprised to find out it was 150ft away when I took the shot and was shot from my bed shooting through my closed double glazing.
