    on the last one, the blured center makes me dizzy. i like it, i forces me to look all over the picture. can't keep my eye in one spot.

    I'm glad the effect I was going for worked! Haha. I was trying to keep the viewer in a bit of chaos.

    That first one is cropped so heavily, it's ridiculous. I seriously cropped that one to about the center 15% of the original, it held up better than I thought it would. I really need a lens longer than 200mm for bird shots.

    Wow at all of them! I love the pileated woodpecker - those guys can be evasive.
    And the last one is just crazy - definately my favorite. Like the way it keeps the eye traveling, you don't just stop and look at it, the eye moves around.

    I like all of them but the first one is first. The third one is eerily that close I would not know what it was without you mentioning it.

    It look like the lens worth the money after all.

    That was the idea of the third one, an abstract approach. Haha, thanks for the comments. I am pretty happy with the third one, those birds are so paranoid, I had to crawl up to it, and I was still like, fifteen feet away when it flew away, I was sad.
