    Contrary to many people, I really like pigeons! Anyway, on my monitor they all look a tad out of focus. I know the experts all talk about the rule of thirds when composing a shot, but remember that rules are made to be broken and that said, the rule of thirds is not written in stone and it appears with the two shots of the single birds that you were trying to keep them out of the center of the shot. In my opinion they would have looked better if they were more centered; especially the second shot where the bird is almost out of the frame.

    That's interesting...

    I wonder how they can be out of focus since I was using AF...argh.

    Easy. Do you remember exactly which focus-point your camera selected? There's also the issue of DoF; depending on your aperture, and distance to subject, it's quite possible for the tail of the bird to be in focus and the head soft, or vice versa.

    I would be inclined to crop the pics to eliminate much of what is not the subject.
