is/was prompted by a remark made to an image of a bird on a feeder.
First this is NOT pointing fingers at anybody, but the remark made was to the effect that the viewer was not keen on images of birds on feeders/bird tables,
I have no issue with that but it left me thinking "what makes a good image".
Bird images can fall into many categories ie,
1.Birds in flight.
2.Portraits (head and shoulders).
3.Classic, side on, very sharp, right colours and would look good in an bird identification book, ie this a "Robin".
4.Bits of birds, wing tips missing etc.
5.Birds in their environment, ie bird is there, but is not the main part of the image.
6.Birds as "art", blurred/manipulated/false colours etc.
