Default The fence sitters & warblers

G'day all

Went for a walk yesterday at the farm I am staying at for a couple of days, and came across these 2 blokes sitting around and relaxing


Aussie Magpies sitting on the fence.
Fuji X-s1 camera, lens at 625mm equiv; exif= 1/350 @ f6,3, ISO-100

Hope you enjoy 'em ~ comments always welcome
Regards, Phil

I like the crop better. The comp is great, but the DOF seems to have the front bird a little soft.

I like the original better. Sometimes context is important (especially when not focusing - excuse the pun - on detail).

Thankyou all for your visual comments about the photo

I can see the changes in the crop - okay there
