    Strength- color story, and framing- good call on the square. Distracting- a lack of depth of field. I would have preferred the bird and the boy to be in focus, together to really isolate their story from the busy back/foreground.

    DUO I agree - it seems too cluttered - if I had "open up" and selectively focused on the boy/bird instead of letting the camera focus on the trashcan this would have been a much better photo.

    Terry, I think the only way to capture this scene perfectly is to wait. Go down there one afternoon, and pick a spot where you'll have a good background, etc. and just wait for a kid to discover the magic of flight. I like the story, you're telling here, though.

    I have agree with your and everyone's comments...One thing that has helped me take bird shots is a fast lens (of course, I don't know what you were shooting with, maybe you have that). I got a couple of really good birds in flight with my 70-300mm. Am I doing crazytalk? I don't know...I'm new at this! I'll upload my bird pics to the album anyway so you can see what I mean.

    Carmel, I use the same lens. I added two shots where I played with the background and seems the best shots are those with minimal detail. I liked Kevin's idea to work on isolating the interaction between the boy and the birds while minimizing the clutter thru the use of a wide aperture and long focal length lens 300mm.
