    Wow #2 is very special! It's got a nice abstract feel to it.
    Lighten up!
    I shoot with Canon EOS 500 & 6D, EFS17-55 f2.8, EF35L f1.4, EF135L f2, Speedlites 580EX II & 430EX II.

    Thanks for that, it took a lot of shots of empty sky to get this 1.

    WOW these show real potential

    #1 slightly OOF probably due to being handheld but the colours are wonderful, and Tuis are particularly shy in my experience in the wild, so getting that close is excellent
    #2 really clever shot, awesome timing, could be improved with cropping and a bit of processing to boost the colours
    #3 again slightly OOF but again a difficult bird to shoot in my experience
    #4 is the money shot for sure

    A great series and you clearly have an excellent eye, and waaaaaay more patience for shooting birds, or superninja stalking skillz

    I had a bit of a play with your Tui shot in LR - nothing much just toned down the sky a bit to make it look a bit more natural

    I love #2. It's full of nature being nature. The wings and tail doing their thing, the feast in front of the bird. It's all going on.

    no idea, i dont use it, I use LR, is SO MUCH EASIER to do basic processing in, and even certain levels of more fancier editing

    Thank you, I was fortunate in that he was so busy gorging on the pollen that I managed to get in close.
