This is one of my favorite images from the St. Louis Zoo...the bird was in one of those giant conservatories where they can fly freely about. My questions about it: -Is it sharp enough? (seems to me it could be a tad sharper) -How's the DOF? -I applied a velia effect to this, is it too much? -I wish the little ankle things weren't on it, but it led me to the title trapped... -Is the composition good? -This was the first time for me ever to really shoot animals, especially birds of this nature, So I think I'm happy with the results, but would really like critique as to what I can improve upon in the future. Oh and this was shot using my Rebel XT with my new Tamron 70-300 telephoto lens, at 300 using a monopod on auto settings.
