I really like the colors of the blue bird shot and the composition of the Gold finch. Nice job.

Hi Houston, the thrasher is a really neat looking bird and I'm glad you included it as I can't recall seeing one before in the forum but my memory isn't great. The other three are composed extremely well and I think you put some thoughtful effort into how you wanted to take the photos. Great job.

Nice shots Houston. Really good color. Question, how did you get those
guys in the last two shots to sit still long enough to shot at those shutter speeds?

Hi Houston

Wonderful shots. I think the first two would look better if you lower the saturation a hair. Everyone seems to love the color (as do I) but I think you're wiping out some details, expecially on the Bluebird...

Thanks to everyone for looking in. Norm I've been trying to get a shot of the Brown Thrasher for quite a while now as two of them visit quite often. The trouble is that they run around on the ground like they are in a race with some unseen thing. I finally got this one when he stopped on the fence for a second.

Woodmeister as for the shutter speed my backyard is more shade than sun. Too many trees and sometimes I forget to change the ISO to compensate. Getting old I guess. :-)

And thanks Dave for trying to help me out. I use PS Elements 2 and Focus Magic but I'm not all that proficient in either one yet. Still trying to grasp some of that stuff.:crazy:
