    #1 made me chuckle lol The Dof is just great. The guy in the background is fun. I wish you would of focused on the birds eye. Then you could of gotten some cool detail from his crazy eyelashes!!
    #2 is cute w/ everyone lined up.......I might mess w/ the crop, something just doesn't work for me. Maybe just a little too tight?
    Keep shooting these were fun to look at!!

    Very well done IMO on #1 - #3. I really like these pics. #4 does suffer from loosing the highlights a bit.

    i love 1-2! the others are ok too, except for the blown out highlights in 3-4 that is. 5 might be a little dark, but it could just be my monitor. i do like the position of the bird in five and the tight framing.

    First - add some commentary to #1 & #2.
    They are both well composed.
    #1 maybe up the exposure a touch, and focus on the eyes...which due to the location of the eyes may mean a larger aperture.

    I really like #1, a very good chuckle.

    Thanks for the feedback. Much appreciated. I wish I had more time to properly capture frame #1, those these fellows were quick to move away from me!
