    I like the first with the catchlight in his eye! Chosen DOF might have been just a tad too shallow, would have been nice not ONLY to have that (perfectly focused!) eye in focus, but also the beak and the feathers, in short, the whole bird (as far as we can see it here).

    i guess i have to learn more about DOF. i posted two sets of pics and both comments are about needing a wider DOF.

    i dont fully understand how to change that just yet. still playing with the auto modes.
