LOLOL.. Ok I go to work for a few hours and come back to this..

Critiques and Techniques THAT is what this forum is for. I gave an honest opinion.. I was actually trying to be nice. You're acting as though someone told you that youstink as a photographer and should leave the forum..lol

If you will take for the example of those professional photos.. They are all somewhat centred. The bird is not.. it really does look like you took a shot from a distance and your mouse slipped during crop. Typically when I backround is blurred that much it shouldn't share the centre of the photo.

Anyway.. I won't bother going on. Take any comments as a grain of salt, because this is a forum that people want honesty... Not everyone at that extent can dish it out politly.. but that's not really the point here. Though.. on that note, if you do have something 'rotten' to say about a photo (ie: your photo stinks).. then you need to explain why.

I guess you didn't see where I apologized???

I always thought that pix were suppose to be a rule of Thirds and why it wasn't centered...

Enough folks said it wasn't a good shot, so I have to go with that. Thanks for the imputs. I mean that.

You may want to review the idea of 'rule of thirds'.. The first photo is not an example of that.

I used to have four parrots (ex-wife has them now) and I appreciate your love for those beautiful creatures.

A nice technique would be to put the bird on a branch or a perch far away from the background (at least 10 feet), and then shoot with your aperture wide open to blur the background.

You can also blur the background and adjust the color of it using Photoshop Elements.

If you want, you could send me one of your photos and I'll do some processing on them, and give you the steps.

Keep up the good work!

I will try everything that has been suggested on these threads. I've got to look past my love for my Parrot and at the techniques instead.

( Terry, I may take you up on your offer! )
