  #205 Birds
Entry 23 of 25

Panasonic DMC-GX7       23rd place, 14 points
1/1300s, f6.3, ISO 320, 40mm, Normal Program, Pattern, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Cropped; Lifted shadows and brightened bird; Cloned out some dirty spots on light fixture; Increased color saturation; Denoised; Sharpened; Resized.       Extra Info: We are currently vacationing in the Caribbean where these tiny birds are plentiful. They love sweets so I put out some fruit on the patio. Since I'm traveling, I only have a 20mm lens, so I had to sit very still and wait for the bird to show up, then slowly approached him and held out my camera within about a foot (30cm) of the bird. I still had to crop quite a bit.

    Hm, this was my top 9 :-( The image is nice and I found myself difficult to capture little birds with a 200mm... let alone with a 40mm! You did really a great job with such a handicap!

    Nice view of the bird, with good framing by the trees, but the chimney(?) detracts from the appeal.

    Nice trick and you really did a great job considering the short lens. Well done!

    Nice capture with a short lens. Some local adjustments would help bring out the eye. Your post processing left a noticeable halo around the bird.

    Love this, but feels it lack definition because of the large background. I think a tighter crop would have made a difference.
