    First one. More bird detail, not as much green grass. But I don't know anything either, that's just a gut instinct. Good luck. :party:

    Both nice shots. :lo5:

    Love the shallow focus of the first one. I'd go with that.

    First one looks good. I like the blur behind the bird. It makes the bird stand out so much better than on the second one. I took the liberty of sharpening it up a bit for you.
