Hi Alex, welcome to the group, we are glad you are here.

I think you have captured a great portrait of this hummingbird. He looks like he is going in for some food with his little tongue sticking out of the beak and the square crop frames him nicely. I feel your background, which is soft and creamy, sets him off very well and enhances his color nicely. I wish you had told us the shutter speed and aperture information you used for this shot in the about the image dialogue area. I don't mind the blur of the wings as this, to me, conveys the birds rapid movements, but I do feel that the image is a bit soft especially around the tail.   Posted: 11/12/2020 13:21:25

Thanks! I definitely noticed the soft/out of focus area near the tail. I appreciate the feedback!   Posted: 11/13/2020 11:57:00

Hello Alex. Welcome to our group. I read your Bio. Congratulations! You have had a difficult journey to get to where you are (and belong). I was born in Akron and spent most of my life in Pittsburgh. As to your image I agree with Bruce. I would second his suggestion to you provide the aperture, shutter speed, ISO details. Also the camera and lens type. Only the people in this group find that stuff interesting. Especially so with an image like yours! Excellent background. The blur of the wings conveys motion/flight. I too noticed the tongue right away. The bird's eye is spot on and my attention goes right too it. I love hummingbird photos and this is a quite good one. Again, welcome.   Posted: 11/13/2020 10:02:18

This is a nice portrait of a hummingbird which could be used for documentary purposes. Otherwise, it looks like a Christmas ornament just hanging there. I would like to see more elements to provide a story.   Posted: 11/14/2020 13:58:30
