I parked by him/her by accident and had a 50mm when it flew. I haven't been taking photos for a few years so go easy!

No one really cares! I guess this site isn't the feel good back patting happy fest I remember it to be. Oh well, carry on

Why complain? Your flicker got two Likes. Many images get zero. I don't know how long you were gone, but now that Likes are available, they partly replace the strings of bland and repetitious "Awesome shot" posts that used to appear.

A lesson that made an impression on me in childhood was "Don't fish for compliments." I still agree with the principle.

Surely you can see the sarcasm that I am so blatantly slathering on? I haven't posted for 5 years or so, but I remember it more of a thing where you would post an image and people would critique and in turn you would critique those people's work. It almost sounds like I am describing a photography forum or something.

If posting a picture and asking what people think is "begging for compliments" then everyone on here is a bunch of needy beggers apparently because I was under the impression that that was the whole point. Maybe it's just that a new thread is reserved for the super pros and my mediocre shots don't qualify. I shal retire to the "post your best so and so shot" forum if that is the case.

Oh, I saw the sarcasm, all right. I see it also in your second post.

If you want genuine critique, as opposed to a "feel good back patting happy fest," members will oblige you at the critique forum. It's over here.

Well, you didn't ask what people think. My impression of the whole point is different. People post for various reasons.

This thread is much slower during the summer. If you want to see more likes and comments, post later this fall! The forum has a critique section if that is what you seek. Most people will not offer advise in this part of the forum unless you ask. If I was to critique, I would say just the one shot of the bird closest to the tree would be enough, and clone out the distracting elements, the black and white car, or whatever that object is!
Being from the East Coast, I have never seen the Red shafted variety. It's a very pretty bird.
