Exactly. Cheap camera, zoomed in, bad lighting, probably cropped (it's been a few years), bad almost-bokeh.

In fact, it never even occurred to me until CN railfan mentioned it.

The trees in the bird shot are about 20-30 feet beyond the bird. However, I'm only about 10 feet away as you can see my reflection in the feeder.

With the picture of the people on the tracks, I was probably 50-100 yards away from them.
Rhymes with slice, rice and mice, and probably should be spelled like "Tice."

This pretty much sums it up:
