    Please constructively C&C, and edit if you'd like as long as you post what changes you made.

    Today for me was mostly a lesson in choosing the right aperture so I used aperture priority mode only today while constantly trying different apertures for different things.

    I promise their eyes were in focus in all of these pics, but scaling them down to 800x600 it's hard to see them :x

    Thanks

    Laughing gulls? seen one here, not to common.

    most of your bird shots seem to be soft on focus the best out of them are probely 9 and 11, i like the pier shots though!

    nice job.

    Nice catches on the birds! Could be more in focus, but I know you said you were going for aperture mode.

    My favorites are
    #4 and #5 the pier
    #6 Thats one crazy looking bird!
    #9 Looks like theres a smudge or something in the top left corner, but I love the bird in formation like they're readying for an air raid!

    Thanks!

    I like those too, these birds were way fast and hard to get!

    #9, I thought so too, like an squadron ready for activation :) The smudge was from a quick retouch, Iphoto doesn't have a clone feature :(

    #10 He actually caught that piece of food mid air while coming in for a landing!!!
