Took these from our balcony with Panasonic G1/45-200mm (90-400 equ) hand held.
they seem slightly shaken or just a bit unsharp.. can't really tell. Maybe you should've tried a 1/400 shutter speed rather then 1/200
They seem sharp to me. I like 1 and 3 the most.
Cedar Waxwing are tough birds to get, not to bad.
They are as sharp as they are going to get, the second two look like a missfocus, poor AF performance hurts, but atleast the DoF is deep enough to where the bird is into it.
I like the position in the third but lacking slightly in the detail department. The first one is the best of them IMHO, the bird is in focus and perched in an interesting position.
The second one is unappealing completely, motion blur in the tail and too dark at the faceand beak. I would have dumpped that one personally.
Thanks for your comments guys.
I included the second pic for a belly view of the bird even though it is not a sharp pic.
I took another shot today with the shutter speed up to 200 & ISO 400, the light is poor due to the fact it is still raining. This pic is heavily cropped.
