recently visited

Nalsarovar Bird Sanctuary....spread around 120 km area situated near Ahmedabad, its really huge lake.. many migratory birds can be seen over there.

hope some of them is worth commenting upon..thanks for the support..

Let me Thank Martin for sharing with us a nice HDR software ,first time i used it in a image where one segal is sitting while image of one flying segal can be seen in the water.i dont know whether i am able to use it in perfact manner or not but thats my weakness..

Jim, here are my observations - more for you to improve upon the ones posted here. Please take them constructively.
1-1 - The half wing appearing on top could have been avoided - which means, you need to learn to edit the snaps by cropping and deleting portions that are not required.
1-2 - Very nice, particularly the water splashing under its right wing. Only, I would have liked that wing appear in full.
1-3 - Nice shot, but a little blurred - I understand your difficulty, but the rule is, if it is not good, don't post!
1-4 - Very nice. Way to go.
1-5 - Very nice composition. A little underexposed, you could try brightening it up through editing.
2-1 - Very nice.
2-2 - Nice colours, but the photo is top-heavy. Would have been better if the boats were a little down, below the centre of the frame.
2-3 - Nice composition, but out of focus again.
2-4 - Green bee-eater - very nice. Could have been a tack sharper.
2-5 - Nice again, but could be edited to show only the parrots, leaving a major portion of the tree out.
These comments are to my taste. It is up to you to take, depending on your taste. You may get more and better comments. Study the comments, judge which of them sound right for you to try to implement the ideas you learn. That's how I learnt through this forum. Best of luck!

Jim - I have to agree with most everything Raghu says. I know how difficult it is to capture wildlife because everything must work perfectly! And your subject NEVER cooperates with you...... #2 would have been great if the wing didn't get clipped. I'm also a stickler about a level horizon - #1 and #2 are both tilted, though not as distracting in #5 (I like this a lot too). I hope you don't mind, but tried playing around with your #1 because I also like the reflection. Rotated and cropped using PS Elements, just my humble suggestion.

Jim, these are wonderful! Very interesting composition on #3.1. I love #3.2 where he seems to be looking at his own reflection. #3.3 is a GREAT shot!!!! I absolutely love this one.
