Default Birds - 1st batch

I will be making different batches of these, since there's 153 pictures of bird. I won't upload all of them. Only the ones that deserves your eyes, my forum friends
I'll be having them resized so that it won't hurt you guys

Here we got some Blue Tits and one Great Tit and one could say, he's not the brightest kid on the block, LOL.





Hope you like it.

Note: I know that there's some on the left side that could've been cropped, but only if it were single pictures, I'll tell you then. If I had cropped away the box on the left, the Blue Tit on #3 and #4 would've been cut.

What I think you should have done was tilt your camera to the angle of the feeder. Those birds look like chickadees that had a swim in some food dye.

Hey a bird can never have too much color. These look really nice compared to our black white and grey ones.

Thanks, I had a bit of luck there, the lighting for the time of day and where the sun was parallel to me, casted very nice color cast. I have boosted the vibrancy of the birds just a teeny bit along with giving the picture more contrast to make it pop. But I only had to go around +5 or +10 (Lightroom controls) to get these results.

Sorry about the tilt. I'll see if I can get the next batches to be straight, just as long as I don't mess up a bird that might bring something to the picture

This is what it would have looked like if you lined up the camera with the feeder.
