Hey guys, I posted these photos in the wildlife forum. Please critique number 5. I have kept editing in line with the photographic association I belong to which eliminates the use of any selective editing(i.e. doging and burning) and cloning.

Hi,

Really nice series. So on number 5... apart from the obvious distraction in the foreground which a clone job would really take care of, the branch that the bird is on is moving. I think a faster shutter speed to reduce that movement would have helped. Also the bird itself looks a little fuzzy - not sure if that is from the beers last night!

My personal fave is the kingfisher- number 1. Thats cool man... and the composition of the eagle is nice too.

Dom

Some of them are kinda okish. Keep watching out for my bird shot posts and you may pick up a few tricks. In actuall fact I have just this moment returned from a wild bird safari and shall be posting a selection of my skills in due course . . . :?

I think they're pretty amazing actually. The weather is the same here at the moment. Very dreary and set to get worse by the end of the week with a cold front from Syberia.

Thanks everyone for looking in and commenting. If ever you are going to make a trip to photograph wildlife, Malawi is up there with the best possible options to travel to. The birds in the park I visited had never been hunted by man before so even though they showed some fear of man, it was based more on the fact that I was bigger then them rather then that I was going to eat them, making it quite easy to get close.
