Where did I go wrong
Lens: Tamron 24-135 Camera: Pentax K-3 Photo Location: Bunratty Ireland 
Posted By: Schraubstock, 02-25-2018, 05:34 AM

Clearly wildlife photography is not my strength.

LOL

Actually, this is a lovely scene with nice colours. Leaving the bird there instead of cloning it out - as some of us might have been tempted to - has worked well. I like that the bird appears to be looking down the street at the same scene you've photographed

I like the bird in the same " pose " as the man in the back ground

and the " reversal " of the normal perspective -

having the smaller " target " closer to the camera while the " larger " target is farther away

obviously you took the time to get that exact composition

good job

I’d be tempted to call this photo “A bird’s eye view” as play on words for the thoughtful perspective that includes leaving the bird in the photo. Nicely done.

Thanks for your kind appraisal.

To me it is always of interest to see how people see thinks differently. Your comment is an example.
By the way the man in the background, as I later found out, was studying a menu board outside a pup offering a number of "Liquid Lunches" on offer all of which comprising different Irish beers like Murphy's Irish Stout, Murphy's Irish Red and half a dozen Guinness from Draught to Extra Stout if I remember correctly. Bon appetit

Thanks.
Great suggestion, never occurred to me. This then would be a reverse bird’s eye view, would it not? (from bottom to up)

That's the twist (play on words) and why I feel "A bird's eye view" works.

That is what I thought he was studying, the menu being posted outside

At least you got the bird within the frame - something I rarely accomplish.

I nearly spit on my monitor from laughing after looking at the words and then at the image.

A man with an exquisite sense of humor. So glad you got a laugh out of it, the image's done its job.

Whatever you do, don't spit at your monitor. A little while ago there was a thread here how to remove saliva from a sensor and I was able to offer some advise, but monitor ? Sorry , you are on your own.

Cheers
