In my first post here "Washington Palms" I was told that my image quality was poor and the subject was weak. After reading the comments I agree with them. This image was a forced quick snapshot (will explain if needed). Is the strength of the subject and the image quality improving?

Thanks for any comments.

Hi,

Unfortunately I think that the leaf/branch across the frame is really distracting. It spoils an otherwise nice picture. Also watch the tail - you lost a little off his tail at the bottom of the shot. Nice detail on the bird...

i agree with dom.. the placement of the bird on the left 1/3 is much better.. and it stands out well against the backdrop you have placed.. watch cropping off the tail though...

its unfortunate that branch is in the way,as it does ruin this shot.. otherwise this shot is an improvement over your first composition and subject wise..

keep shooting and keep posting!!

Thank you for your commments.
I knew about the branch and the tail. I have an hour for lunch and now lunch is over with three minutes left to punch in. Camera is back in my bag and now comes this bird. I had no time to compose the shot properly. I think time will let me do this faster. What I am after is the quality of the image itself. Is it over compressed or does it show up clearly on your monitor? I followed your advice Dustin on resize/compression.

Thank You.

jim,

yes, the resize and compression looks much better on this image...

and yes, with time you will learn to get your camera out and ready to shoot much faster.. its all part of the fun of learning and seeing your results improve :-)
