    These are some of the images I have taken since getting my camera (Olympus E-520) on the 18th of December. I could use some CC. Some specific questions I have are, is there a practical way to get good manual settings on birds in flight?
    One more thing I have posted a couple of these photos before and I want to know if you see any improvements from my first photographs and my newer ones.

    1. This is an old one that I reworked to reduce noise. Do you notice a noise problem in this photo?

    2.This is another older one.

    3. This is another old one I am proud of.

    I could use some constructive criticisms on this thanks for your comments.

    I think to capture birds in flight, you are going to need a bigger lens so you can crank up the Shutter speed.

    I really like the 1st one. I don't notice any noise. I did not see the previous one you posted.

    #2 & 3 - I don't find the subjects particularly interesting.

    #4 - 7 I like all the bird pics, but I would crop out some of the extra sky

    #8 not sure how to help you with the flying bird photo, but I agree that you need a faster shutter speed to be able to capture it better.

    I'm just a newbie, but I wanted to chime in.

    I really like the first photo, very pretty. But, you can really tell the difference with your new camera! The clarity and color saturation is beautiful! My favorite is #4. I agree that you should do some cropping in the other photos to focus in more on the bird.

    Looks like you're off to a great start with your new camera, have fun!
