There is a preserve near my house and these are some pictures I took..Would love some C&C. Thank you!! All of these were shot with my iso at 500. I forgot to change it..I really need to learn to check my settings before shooting. 1) iso 500, 1/1250s, f/9 2) iso500, 1/1250s, f/5.6 These birds are impossible to get close to. This is the closest I've have been able to get. I was limited on how I could take this picture and I realize there are twigs in front of it. Are they too distracting?? (fixed it) 3) iso500, 1/1250s, f/22 Not sure if this one works, but I like it. I like how you can see the spines of the close cactus, but I'm not sure if all that black is too distracting.
