Hey,
Just started taking some bird photos with my new Sigma 150-600. Seems to be pretty good quality for the price. Any input valued as I am new to birds.

Cheers,
Cam

Nit picking a bit, but try to keep them a little more off center and framed a little tighter when possible; but this is a gorgeous shot and a beautiful bird. Quite well done.

I had same thought as Eric to crop the bird off center a tad. Vertical composition would bring you in tighter too.

Regarding being new to birds, try to learn about them as much as you can. Get out in the field a lot to get a sense of birds behavior. That will allow you to anticipate their actions and give you more chances to "get the shot".

The Little Pied Cormorant is a handsome fellow.


Keep 'em flying,

A sweet capture.

Crops are so subjective. I do agree with a less centered subject. Here's my suggestion, keep it landscape and the crop tighter to the left.

Sometimes there are days when you get the shot(s) you missed many days, months or years before.

I think it's a great shot of a very attractive bird; well done.
