Be aware of your backgrounds. They can ruin a pic. That garbage can behind the bird on the left is a killer.
I knew that going in, actually. I saw it there. But I thought I’d give the bird shot a chance. I could always crop heavily in, right? But the bird isn’t looking all that great when seen close up, either, so the whole thing is a wash. Still, it’s a good lesson to learn.
