About the Image(s)

I am not really into bird photography but I did have fun trying to get a good focus on a few of them!

I think you did get a good focus lock on them. It is not easy with birds moving a fast in flight as ducks taking off.

What I would suggest is possible cropping some off of the right side. Their attitude in flight (particularly the one in the lower right corner) is interesting but too close to the edge of the image almost dragging my eye out fo the scene. Perhaps, depending on what was in the original you might have left more room on the right …

Good catch on the focus for a difficult subject. Thank you for sharing it with us Jen.   Posted: 01/02/2020 19:52:54

They look sharp to me, Jen! I think these birds work well in black and white, due to the contrasty tones, and patterns on the birds, helps them stand out against the simpler background. Ed makes good comments on the crop.   Posted: 01/03/2020 13:21:08

I also agree with Ed, cropping out the right three birds. This is one of my favorite subjects. As matter of fact we are going out to the Outer Banks next to shoot waterfowl. I hope I can get mine in such sharp focus. You did great.
