Welcome to Dyxum KoBra64. Don't be afraid to increase the size of your shots a bit (say to 860 pix wide for a horizontal).

Cheers... Brian

@ibej66: Looks like you have many of the same visitors to my feeder in North Carolina. Hope you get the links straightened out. Here is a link that might help http://www.dyxum.com/dforum/forum_posts.asp?TID=28010

Thanks for the clarification Jean-Louis. Yes, I agree that a little motion blur in the wings does work well to give the feeling of motion.

@BMS44974 Sorry I should have mentioned that my comments were for the whole thread and not particularly your images. I too appreciate the identification of birds from photography but I think the intent of the thread is to show artistic images of birds, not only images used for identification - hence the comments. The highlight you added have made those birds come alive for me. Good job.

@Frankman, I really mean slower shutter speeds and that is to show movement of the wings. It is the same reason why many shoot waterfalls at a lower speed, to capture the movements. With birds, that involves panning too to get the head clear but the wigs blurry. Hard to do.

Geardown, that is a beautiful shot of the Albatros that illustrates the tips I made earlier.

Hope that helps,
Jean-Louis

Here's another one from the Southern Ocean.

Buller's Albatross, on the IUCN Red List as Near Threatened. I just love the beak on these birds
