In both the shots, the birds are blurred, I can understand the 2nd, but why a slow shutter speed in 1? And that too against the sun? The sun and surroundings are completely washed out....

Thanks. . the shutter speed is not slow its just the processing that has blown out the round sun.. but yes I wasn't able to take proper pics of the bird.....

It is not the birds but the washed out area around the sun... :)

Birds needed to be sharp. 2nd pic exposure is fine.

  • There is more to it than the eyes can see.
You have made a very good try. However, I would like to point out a few things since you have asked for an honest feedback:

1) No part of any shot is effectively dragging your eyes to that. Don't worry, many of us have gone through that and still going through at times.
2) There are blown out areas and they need to be properly balanced, while shooting as well as while processing.
3) The birds are mostly blurred. You have to choose a higher ISO to get a better exposure time. The other option is to take such shots when the light is better. But you may not have the birds then...its a matter of chance in the 2nd option.

This is my view.

Thanks.
