    You used a flash in the last two pics? They seem a little over exposed, especially the second last.

    I really like the shot of the maple leaves and Meadow

    Heya Christina, welcome to ThePhotoForum!

    You've got some wonderful pets here, the photo of Meadow among the leaves could almost be an Easter Greeting card, if it weren't for the autumn leaves ... by hey, why not STILL become an Easter Greeting card, eh? ;)

    And your pigeons are so tame they pose for you?
    Lucky you.
    I have tried to photograph birds (every now and again, not too seriously pursuing the attempts) for years with little to no luck (other than our Canadian - and one Dutch! - bird photography experts here on the forum!) - and you have birds that will just POSE for you, you lucky girl.

    Shiney is a bit shiny in both his pics... for him you must possibly underexpose quite deliberately to bring out all the detail of his feathers.
    And Windigo is not quite so in focus as he should be: I find it important that the eyes are absolutely in focus.

    But they move! I see where it is difficult to get the focus right!

    Nice introductory pics.
    Post more.

    Thanks,

    My flash always comes out when its more dark, when I turn off the flash my photos become more blurry if somthing is moving so I always try to take shots outside.

    Im going to be getting a good camera for christmas that I can't wait for. :wink:

    Yes Shiney was too bright, ill try to work with my little camera and see what I can do lol I just relized like a 4 weeks ago I could focus my photos in ever since I have been doing up close shots,wild birds can be hard to capture, I have a photo of a wild bird I caught a long time ago lol it looks like its playing dead ill show you all the photo.

    Yep there tame all except Moccasin she can get realy scared.

    Yes crappy photos.:blushing:

    There not the best because I was learning how to use my camerea lol as you can see I have gotten better and more clear, some of these birds where far away so it was hard to get my cam to focus.

    Catching wild birds? That's some catlike reflexes. If I caught one, it'd have to be cuz it was sick or dying...erm, I hope you washed your hands judging from that pic. OR maybe they play dead, or most likely you put it in shock. What happened when you let it go free after?

    Anyways, I love the first round of pics, very pretty birdies you got. Great opportunities, having them as pets.
