Important: please keep your image under 700 pixels wide/high for in-line viewing, and please try to keep the FILE SIZE UNDER 300kb. Note that this includes photos hosted off-site (at Flickr, Photobucket, your own site, etc). Are you new to this thread? The general guidelines for these Thursday threads are right here. Remember: only one image each week!Well, its finals week for me, but that shouldn't keep all of you from getting some great shots and posting them here. I didn't get out much yet again this week, lots of studying and end of the semester work to do since I'm an expert procrastinator. Anyways, I did prance around in the yard to try to shoot a few birds. The neighbors probably think I'm nuts, either that or really creepy hiding in the yard with my long lens. I got a shot of a tree swallow that's using our bluebird house. I like the photo, but I'd prefer to get a shot of a bird on a tree, not a fence. Maybe its just me, but I hate to take nature shots with manmade objects in them. The telephone pole on the left distracts the bokeh too. I don't think its a bad photo, I'm just pickey. I don't think I've ever taken a photo I didn't find something wrong with. Is anyone else like this? I don't want to sound pretentious, but I guess if you can't find ways to improve then what's the point in photography?
