"Would like to be critiqued"


pinellas park, US
          

Although I have a background in photography, I have not touched it in 20 some odd years. Being retired I purchased a D5100 and started shooting again. A whole new world with DSLR. So I am requesting fellow Nikonians to view my gallery and critique what I have done so far. I thank you in advance.

Hi Wayne,

Welcome to Nikonians!
You should choose an image and post it in the Critique & Artistic Advise forum.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty

Thanks for the reply, went to the forum and am extremely frustrated as I do not see any way to upload a photo. All i see is post message, can you please help with this? I can usually figure this kind of situation out but this forum is killing me!!! I asked for help in that forum , no reply.

To me all are great except two. And Even those are good. I don't think there is really anything you can do about them. One is the group of White Herons (?) in which the front one is in focus. If you had focused on the last bird in the group all the ones in front would have been out focus based on you settings (depth of field issue). And the other one is where the whole flock is flying. No bird in a Flock can fly exactly the same speed. The only way all birds could have been in sharp focus is to pick out the fastest bird in the group and shoot. Then all would end up in focus. But, impossible job to do.

Basically all your pictures for birds are ten thousands times better than I can do. I didn't see any camera shake. The issues seen were depth of field, related to Shutter Speed to capature the images.

Birds are something I could never shoot.
