    did you turn up the saturation in ps? all the details of the feathers in the red parrot are gone.

    your red is "too red" - that's one way of saying "overstaurated". There is no tonal difference in the red to the extent that the entire bird is just one flat piece of red and no longer looked like a feather covered bird body ... as to how to correct this, do some googling or PM one of us

    but u have some good idea - focus on the eye and other birds ina row out of focused. if so then less space on right and more on left so that the last blurr bird is not cut off

    I believe you took the photo as it is using Canon A710 and didn't post-process it for the posting. "Turn up saturation in PS" means increasing the color saturation using PhotoShop (PS).

    I think you got the focus right on the parrot's eyes which is good. From a point and shoot camera, that's pretty good. Composition wise, not too good to have a missing leg.

    ohhh, now i see.... ok, qns, is there any way i can take a perfect picture of this scene getting the tone right where i can see the details of the feather as well, so that it won't be flat without processing it through photoshop? possible?

    wow man, what camera i use u also know.... my jaws really drop. Anyway, sorry abt the missing leg. cause it was really a challenge taking that handsome chap, cause as soon as i get near it, it start to get excited. haa, so i gotta snap him fast, i think i took abt 5 or 6 shots of it then manage to get this reasonable composition. But i will try it again in my next trip probable next mth. then post and let u all see again. Thx for the comment.

    picture information (camera make, shooting data etc.) can be found under image property. right click on your image in your computer and go to 'properties' that's where you find all the information.

    it's a reasonably good attempt, except for your finger getting into the frame on the lower left. the eye being in focus makes this picture enjoyable. it's also good that you included parts and parcel of the environment (like the pavilion in the background, the birds at the back etc.) makes a nice candid of the bird. looking forward to more shots from you

    Possible, but it is more a question of how your camera works and how it interact with any given scene. For example the red sensor in your CCD may have poor dynamic range, or that the default saturation setting is too high under a certain light, etc etc.

    So one approach is to learn about your camera inside out so that you know all its quirks and idiosyncrasies. And then you start all over again when you change or use another camera. (And there are commercial reasons for camera manufacturers to make you "slave" to one camera, of course.)

    The alternative is to bypass all the camera processing and do the processing yourself. And then you learn the principles only once and you can apply it with any camera in any situation.

    I, of course, prefer the latter approach and am concerned only about composition and composing with focus, shutter speed, DOF and ISO, and to capture as much data as possible in a scene, and can do it with any camera - of course I still have to learn where the various dial placements are, but I dont have to worry about WB, or what settings for saturation, or sharpness, etc etc.

    And finally you dont have to apologise to anyone for your picture - good or bad. Your picture is your picture. If it hurts our eyes to see it, it is because we came here to see such pictures. Don't apologise. Just say thank you - whether it is good or bad critique.
