    Hi Krishna, you've been doing well with the blurs and nice to see you experimenting. I like this one, although I do like the group setting a bit more. Good sense of motion and colors. I think I would clone or smooth over the OOF bird (?) under the goose. TFS

    Hi Krishna,
    I like the image design. I wish the head was a bit sharper.
    I guess I struggle with how much blur is too much blur!

    I liked your blurs with the bigger flocks better than the single bird blurs. The background color is very nice here.

    I like that this one is relatively sharp on the head but am confused by the image design with the bird on the left. The degree of blurring is pleasing.

    Hi Artie,

    Thanks for the comment.

    I saw two birds coming in for landing facing me. I wanted to photograph both of them in the frame, unfortunately both split and landed some way apart. I continued to track the bird on the left. The reason for the same is that I had Group AF left to the center point. This is my default setting which I programmed by the click of a button.

    So with the above, I tracked the bird on the left and made this image.

    In post processing the Bird on the right was clipped and hence I cropped/Cloned it out.

    Let me know if you feel this composition is not good and How I could have improved the same.

    Thanks
    Krishna

    Thanks Krishna. I'd consider a square or boy crop ...
