Oh! I thought this was going to be one image. LOL

Nice Heron, I bet he sure is glad he flew south for the winter!

Tennis ball ... meh. Nice bokeh, but I'm more interested in that shell on the right.

I like the Heron image, but I would selectively darken the hot areas. I also think there is a little to much room at the top of the image. I agree with Bifbradford on the second image. My eyes go straight to the shell.

IMO, Heron missed focus - but that is a hard shot, tennis ball. nailed it, but why?

I agree with these comments. I would crop some off the top and left hand side, but still keep the bird more on the right hand side of the image. With regards to the white areas, what is your post processing histogram showing you?

I immediately thought of Tom Hanks and "Wilson" the volleyball from Castaway when I saw tennis ball shot.

The tennis ball shot needs to be enlarged and then hung, but it needs to be in the right place. I would think that the right place would be a tennis/sports club on a beach somewhere. they could hang it in the corporate offices, behind the front desk, or in a hallway.

This shot might also have a market in the microstock world.


1D-III with stuff to stick on it:
70-200L, 28-70L, 24-105L, 300L, 50, 10-17 fish, 2.0x TC
Image editing OK, encouraged, and expected. Thank you for helping me learn!
