Caught a couple of our state birds courting in the front yard today:

Woah, that bokeh is wild, Mark... I like the placement of the 2nd bird as well.

Considering it's two males... I doubt that. :)

No, the one in the background's a female--rusty and brown, not red like the males.

And, Scott, that's a very 20th century attitude for you to have! :D

I like the framing and leading lines, but really the highlights in the river are blown out and honestly, it just looks underexposed. Do you have a high-res? I might can work on it in Photoshop and bring out some detail.

Nice shot but it looks a little soft and I think you should have used a bit smaller (higher number!) of an aperture to get more detail. Also, you might consider cropping it a bit tighter on her face and bumping the saturation to really bring out her eyes. Maybe try to the "Awesome Eyes" plug-in if you have CS3?

Is it? Looks to be similar coloring to the male in front... but it is completely OOF so I'll take your word for it.

And yeah, birds don't believe in same sex relationships I don't think. :p Not exactly conducive to survival of the species.

Oh, and clone out that piece of hair in her right eye... it's REALLY distracting.

Nice, too bad about the blown out sky. A better camera would have caught that DR better....

Yeah, that's what I thought too... that also must've been shot with a 5D or something, tons of dust spots!

I took a little trip with a friend today. I know my horizon is off and I've got some dust on my lens or sensor. Didn't have time to take it out in PP.

I was taking a stroll earlier while visiting Times Square and captured this loving couple that apparently had not seen each other in a while. I think my B&W conversion came out pretty decent.
