I'm hoping someone can provide a bit of insight.
I've attached some pictures to give an indication of the level I'm at. I'm pretty new to cameras: owning an FZ330/FZ300 for a few months and now the P950 for around say 6 weeks, and I'm interested in bird photography.
I take most of my pictures either lying down with my elbows on the ground or sat down with my elbows resting against my knees, and I've made a point of striking a balance between learning the technical basics, keeping the camera steady and learning how to get close to birds. As is stands, I've nowhere to go except back to the technical aspects of the camera in the event I want to achieve sharper images: I'm as close to birds as possible and the camera is kept steady.
I've seen pictures taken with this camera and they're sharper than mine, and so my question is: what are the top two or three technical things/camera settings that generated such sharp images?
There is minimal cropping with these pictures, by the way.
Thanks in advance for any help,
