Back after a long gap - EPZ was taking over my life! Good to be back and seeing all the amazing images. All very inspiring. Although I feel a bit more confident these days and have taken the camera off auto, I still have so much to learn and would be very grateful for any tips and constructive criticism.

    Just stumbled upon your gallery. you have some really interesting stuff here. Just shows the skill and vision of the photographer is more important than having all the most expensive equipment. Well done you

    Quote:Beautiful shot Rachael captured at the perfect moment. My only thought ( just a personal opinion ) is that it is cropped just a tad too tight. You have fabulous detail on the birds but they do have the appearance of being tightly constrained. If the original would allow you could perhaps have shown a little more of the habitat.
    I stress this is not a criticism but just a personal view.

    Thanks Ron. I am very happy to receive any sort of feedback, especially from someone with wildlife shots of the quality of yours.
    I fully agree about the crop, but the surroundings didn't allow a wider view, just more bird feeders and other garden distractions.

    Both brilliant. I am totally jealous - could only dream of getting a couple of shots like this.
