I dont see why you have two separate posts of the same subject. Both shots look flat, grainy and slightly out of focus. Perhaps a flash was necessary.

different views of the same subject, was just a couple of quick shots while walking past the birds I know the quality is not good, was just wondering how I should frame these type of shots in the future

Actually if the Critique/Technique forum rules were still up as a sticky (they were lost on one of the updates quite a while ago), then it would be shown that in this part that only one photo per thread should be posted so that the people offering the critique can focus on the area desired.

Looking at the exif flash was used but depending on the range it could have been too little to give the pop. How far away were you? Have you had to crop down a lot or is this the full image?

For framing, I would possibly have tried to frame further to the right so the birds are either side of the centre, but I suggest trying different things (this is what is so great about digital!!).

I think when working from the original so PP could help to give some pop as well by playing with curves, adding some noise removal etc etc.

You are doing the right thing, posting and asking for advice keep doing that and you will improve really quickly.

Happy shooting,

Mark
