These are good, how did you do to get close to them? I see some at home quite regularily, but no way I can get close enough to get a good shot.
The first one is clean and it makes a good contrast on the white background and the feathers are nicely textured, I would be very proud of myself if I'd...
Having lived nearly 40 years in Canada and 20 in the USA
and being French Canadian, I had the chance to see both sides of the border.
Both countries are quite similar and many of their pros and cons have been enumerated already.
To that I would add that information in general is much better in...
I really like it, the shapes in the background look like little ghost ( probably not intended) but seems like reminders of a happy past. I love the expressions of warmth, joy and tenderness. Focus is good and composition well balanced. Well done!

What does that have to do with you trying to figure out how to use lightroom?
What is it that causes you a problem in lightroom?
I don't think that my telling you that you have a great shot will help you with any of your future edits. But I think the picture is interesting, love the lighting and...
These are both better than the hummingbirds I have been able to capture! I prefer the second one even though the bokeh on the first one is interesting, the bird feeder looks awkward on it.
On #2 the contrast makes the eye go to the bird and I love to golden tones of the throat! Focus is rather...
