[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Hi everyone,
it's been a long time since I last uploaded on TL (animal photography not being my main interest) and boy, has the site grown a lot!

Wonderful photos, many seem to be taken by very skilled
and experienced photographers, so I don't think this photo even deserves to be uploaded... saying that, I can only imagine what a steep way is to become a good bird photographer provided having needed tools, too.

What expect here are harsh critiques and suggestions, whatever tip will help me make better pics.
So, thanks everyone in advance for your comments!

This one was taken on top of the cliff in Saltburn, next to the cliff lift.

Hi Robert
Well, maybe it's a pity that the focus didn't enclose them all, but I like a lot this line of beautiful and funny birds! Very good colors and composition!
My compliments and TFS.

Hi Robert,
I'm normally more than happy to make any suggestions I can to help improve an image within my ability, but to be honest I really don't see much improvement here, I like it. A good exposure, great contrast and a nice composition. Perhaps the DOF could be deeper so that more or all of the birds are in focus, but looking at the exposure info you couldn't have used a bigger aperture as the shutter speed is low already. It's a good shot, plenty to look at, nice lines and colours and well presented. Nice work!

Hi Robert,

beatiful details of their markings you've captured here. I think the only improvement could be a greater DOF, but i really don't think it makes much difference as this is a great shot anyway. i see we use the same tool..

Hi Robert,
you have captured them well in a very nice composition. Ok you can see the movement of the head in some of them but the focus on the middel one is good.
