1st. Its my photo to do what I wish.

2nd. I setup to capture them only in flight, but at times i capture them doing things that interest me when their not flying.

3rd. I purposely chop their feet because my custom feeders are a part of my technical approach.

Since most who review my shots are more interested in pointing out the imperfect, I'm not going to give up aspects of my technical formula for free and still be held in low regard.

4th. I show you my throw aways that still have some photographic significance beyond the imperfections.

But then you put them up for show in a debating chamber and people can comment as they wish.

Dually noted,

"Stop" telling me how to post my images.

The word "stop!!!" is not an opinion, its an affirmation of assumed authority.

Noted... OK, in my opinion, the image posted in your first post to this thread would have been beautiful if it had been complete (which to me means that the whole bird is there). In my opinion, the focus is perfect, the depth of field is perfect.

However in my opinion, the framing leaves a lot to be desired.

Thank you.  All I needed. I'm a bit better now.

Thanks. Appreciate it. I'm aware of the rolling shutter blur.
