this is outrageous !splendid..i like the composition here..and especially the blurr in the background make an image for me ..the focused pratnicole stands out properly and gives justice to the title. Hatss off to you sir!!

Jayesh bhai am not truly sure of this frame :), plz dont mind. Dont you think a higher DOF could have done better justice unless you had something else in mind which perhaps I failed to notice. Just my 2 cents friend. Hope you take it in the right spirit pal :).

Thanks Nilanjanji for your view. let me share the situation in which i shoot this frame. The group of pratincoles was on a real small island in Nalsarovar. I was shooting at focal length of 700mm.The aperture value i set was at 10. I am not sure even if have set AV 16 or even higher i dont think i was getting all the group in sharp focus. So,i decided to play with DOF & made this composition. Earlier i did similiar things with flowers & i was happy with the result,,,so i decided to try this with birds....

Jayesh, perhaps while using a longer lens it is often wise to back up a little bit :), the foreground in front of the pratincoles are actually obscuring the view a lot, a little more defined shapes on the OOF birds would be good too, the bg seems to be some grassland formations which if included properly would have made this a better visual. I see a lot of people shooting extremely low level to the ground for nearly all shots. This too me is not quite clear as often small heaps of mud or bushes in front create these problems when extreme low angle shots are taken. I can perhaps suggest that may be 5 inches above this angle too might have contributed. These are all my personal views and you do not have to necessarily agree with them, was just trying to figure out what could have made it look different. Thanks for your response once again.
