Spring, Birds, Photography, Expectations and Reality

My goal/dream for spring was to take a photo of the birds in the blooming trees. Most blossoms are almost gone now and I have to put up with the photos I already took. If you have read some of my previous posts, you know that I am rarely satisfied with the quality of my bird photos. The birdies are moving quickly and they get scared easily, so I usually take these photos through my window from far away if I don’t want to scare them. I used a point and shoot camera to take the picture of these greenfinches in the blooming damson.

See some of my tiny bird photos here:

  1. I prefers High quality images if I need to work with them…
    other than that, a reasonably quality is fine …
    at least I need to be able to tell what the subject is :p

  2. I, like Carol, always look at the photos in advance. Basically, if you can not edit any one and have an interesting plot, post it. But this is rare.

  3. I think it depends on the picture and the art value of it. A blurred out of focus picture can be artistic in a fine arts way, but some might not. Focused pictures are, of course, better and preferred, but if the main subject is focused but the background is blurred or out of focus then it still looks good. so, it all depends on the picture.

    I think this picture looks soft, like a cute background photo for something, maybe a website or blog. it probably would have been better if it was focused, but it still looks cute because the subjects are clear, which include the two cute birds and the pretty plant.
