*Hummer out-of-frame shot*

Discussion in 'Birds' started by coffee, Aug 1, 2008.

  1. I took this shot last week and composition wise,this is not a good
    shot at all. I really wanted to see more space on the left where the
    hummer is looking at,but this is an out-of-frame shot.
    This morning,while I was changing sugar water in the feeder,this same
    immature male Costa's flew by and he ate his food right infront of my
    face. He was at less than a feet from me and I took a good look at
    him. A very tiny bird but my camera got a much better details than my
    naked eyes.

    Which frame do you like better?

    Great detail and I like the 1st frame better.
  5. Hi,

    I like the second shot better. I agree with you about the out of frame and composition. In addition, the bird appears to be flying out of the frame. Therefore, I would use the negatives to the advantage and make the crop very tight as you did with the second crop.

    Good shot; I love the sharpness and your capture of the bird's iridescence.

  6. 1st one works for me.
