Lovely photos, if you are having problems taking photos by the window, it's all to do with the light. Do the photos come out blurred? Try focusing the camera on something nearby and then moving it to your Tiel. Is it a point and shoot or a SLR camera?

I'm not camera-savvy but, it isn't a little point and shoot.

It's a pretty heavy duty camera...
Its a Canon Powershot

The problem isn't always when I am by the window.
The problem is the camera is having problems focusing correctly, so I am having to use the "manual focus" setting and focus it based on how far away the subject is.
As you can see, it is capable of taking some great photos...I think the problem is just the user :p:rolleyes::rolleyes:

Canon Powershots are point and shoot cameras. I've got a little Powershot A80 which i'm upgrading to a Powershot A650IS. :D Great little cameras. What type do you have? Manual focus is a good way to take close ups anyway, i use it quite a lot.

Oh :D:rolleyes::rolleyes:

I didn't know it was a point and shoot. I have a point and shoot too, but the Canon is heavy duty, so I thought it was more :p

Here is my canon:

And here is my small, point and shoot (I use this when I am on the go...it is a really nice camera even though there are many newer models :rolleyes:)

Oh cool, i've not seen a G2 before - just lots and lots of G9's which have just been released. :p I think just about anything that isn't a DSLR is considered a point and shoot. I personally can only use smaller camera's because otherwise i get shaky hands and can't take a photo. ;)
