Default Hi, I'm new here!

Hi everyone,

I've been lurking here for a few months now, and finally upped my courage to post some of my photos. I've been at this for a couple of years, and really love wildlife shooting. I hope my contributions can keep up with all the other members' excellent photos I've seen here for the last few months. Feel free to comment. I'd like to read some input so I can keep learning. Thanks for looking,

Dustie

Some really nice, sharp clear photos of the Finches! Great facial expression on #2. Nice capture of bird in song on #3. I especially like the use of light and DOF on #4.

Welcome to the forum. Don't sell yourself short - your work is as good as any that has been posted here - let's see more!

The first two are the best House Finch portraits I think I have seen, and there have been some very good ones. One slight negative, though, if you strive for realism as most nature photographers do - the Finch in the third (last) picture is a striking image in a fine composition , but a bit unnatural in appearance, perhaps too dark or too contrasty to be quite accurate (it would make a wonderful greeting card image as it is, though)!

Keep up the good work!
