    Wildlife never poses the way you want it to!

    These were the best I could manage but I was still happy as it's the first time I have ever photographed this species. DSC_0027 - Copy.jpg DSC_0072 - Copy.jpg DSC_0080 - Copy (2).jpg DSC_0087 - Copy.jpg

    They look a tad soft on my screen but the slowish shutter speed might explain that.

    I like the compositions on the last two although I'd clone out the left most twig on second from last and the tiny bit of gorse in the same position on the last, just to tidy them up a touch.

    Nice set, Ash. The last two definitely are the nicer compositions.

    Nice chats. I agree with Jah on the cloning.

    Hard to edit with such a small file but this is nearer to how I would present it. Not to everyones taste though.

    Thank you I think I may know why as I haven't been on here or a while I forgot to sharpen after resizing, I tend to shoot at quite low shutter speeds and have really steady hands.

    Strangely I usually do clean up little bits like to mentioned so I will do that.

    Thank you, I agree they are my picks to.

    I realised I forgot to sharpen after resizing....ooops! I am not a fan of the blue cast in your edit but I will e re-editing it. Thanks.

    Oh I sure know that I have been doing this a while and many times have sat in my pop up hide for 6+ hours waiting for Kingfishers with nothing to show.

    Very nice set. I'd probably shoot with a faster shutter speed but that is just me.

    Thanks and so would I if the conditions allowed but when the light is too dull there's not much can be done.
