G. Rabending submitted this image taken with a Panasonic FX, 1/320 sec, f/5.5, ISO 50. Rabending acknowledged that the photo is not sharp, and it appears to have been put through some sharpening process. The man standing in the background is killing this image, grabbing attention from the birds. Without the man the photo is interesting and different. The exposure is ok but what is really nice is the way the arm comes into the frame and angles across the frame with the cluster of birds. Going forward watch your backgrounds, it sounds simple but can make a difference.
