Hi
First thanks for looking and taking the time.

I posted in another group about taking more pictures and was advised to shoot more. I took the opportunity to take a few from a window to try be level,
I am looking for C&C even help with photoshop.

Pic details are:-
RAW with S Jpeg,M setting,AV 10, tv1/1600, ISO 800, AWB, 259mm with sig cam and lens. Partial metering.

I seem to not be able to get a sharp image.

I would love to master this camera.

Was this shot with the Tamron, if so why waste some of the focal length, you need to crop in more closely. Was this froma fullsize image, again if not why waste capability. Exposure looks OK, I can see what looks like dust spots so a sensor clean may also be in order. With a stationary bird you could drop to 1/800 and reduce the ISO to 400 as well to improve quality.

well i will give it my best, first I shoot only in raw, much more options available in processing your shot! I'm not quite familiar with your setting terms I guess AV is your aperture, open it up to reduce your iso setting as low as you can get, if you set it at f5-6 numbers you can reduce your iso and still keep the 1600 speed. As far as your focus, it is a bit soft on the dove but you have so many cedar branches around the bird it is distracting from your subject and make AF harder to get great focus on the bird. Also, put up some perches, feeders near your perches ( i go out in to the woods, find a pretty branch, dig a hole and wait), they like to land on the perches and survey the situation. Last but not least, Although times are tough, I would upgrade the 20d to a 50d, a fine camera and if you get addicted like me buy some longer glass, Canon L is the best there is. But the other group is right, shoot lots of shots and critique them your self, practice will make you better.
Welcome to the forum, lets see some more of your shots!

Thank you for your C&C.

Yes Ken, It was with the Tamron, I was told that it may not give best results on full focal, it does have macro, would you suggest using it. When they get me up in the morning I will try what you said and will try the reduced settings. Camera was bought to get into photography again, I never thought about the sensor until I took a picture at f22, saw the marks, would you recommend self cleaning or professional?
It is uncropped and full size.

Thanks BGraphy, I opted for the 20d as I could afford this to try, my kids were the ones I bought it for so they could do their school work. I wanted to see how good it
is, just not able to get it sharp enough. I hope to catch the mallards that live behind on the river. I will try f5.6 too.
Here is another little fellow that started it.

Just a note the histograph is blown out in section 4.
