Im having trouble figuring out wich one looks the best.

1-I like the big one because you can see more of the landscape and the parrots tail
2-and the small on, because it zooms in to the parrots ans the turtles

Wut do you think?

These are hard shots to do well because parrots have sharp jerky movements so you need a fast shutter speed.

I like shot 1 better primarily because shot 2 is totally out of focus. So even though the composition and colours may be interesting in shot 2, it is out of focus.

Shot 1 is better but it still has problems. The parrots should be the sharpest element in the shot and they are not. The branch to the right (the viewer's right) is sharper and brighter than the parrots. Also the left side of the photo has a leaf that is very distracting. Personally i might crop a good 2 inches into the left side of the photo to where the water goes from brown to green. OR maybe clone out the leaf.

Hope that helps,

I like shot 1 the best, but I didn't even notice what Marko said until he did, shows you how much I know...;) The parrots are cute though...:D
