House Sparrow

Hello, I am not normally an animal photography (I prefer plants and bugs), but with the winter weather we are experiencing in the United States, I have adventured into birds. Here are a few of my pictures. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Hi Chloe,
Image 3: Absolutely grabbing and holding composition for me as an art frame. no distractions, simple and minimal (these are most difficult)

Image 2: Bottom right brown patch is distraction. besides, for my perception what this frame is trying to tell by placing the bird bang in the center in composition. Good as an informative shot to teach though.

Image: for my opinion, its chaos and distractions.

Thanks Vijay. I am VERY new at bird pictures.

I honestly liked the first one the best for the involvement of something besides white, but I also see the chaotic factor.

As for the second one, I had to crop it in a fair amount (they were very scared and would fly off as soon as they heard my feet move in the snow). I am adjust the cropping for sure, but the blob in the background is actually a very old tree.

Hi Cloe. All these are personal opinions of individuals and sure its very much important what do you like and feel about your images.

the expert and good photographers say, they usually identify the spot and wait there. when not much movement, the birds get into their routine again. All wild life photographers say patience is the name of the game.

about big tree in background, you may scout for good location keep checking your DOF and wait.

cheers.
