    This is my first post here on BPN. I have joined this forum as I am very eager to learn good photography from the great masters here on this group.

    Gear used here for this photo is
    Nikon D7100
    Nikkor 400mm F2.8 vrII
    1.4 TC
    Tripod
    This is shot in Sattal India.

    Thanks in advance for your valuable critics.

    From what I see, looks pretty darn good to me. The exposure and sharpness
    look dead on. You also did a fine job with the perch. Some times people leave
    to much of a perch visible or the perch is to big for the bird. This one looks
    perfect to me.

    The colors are beautiful and the oof background is excellent.

    Well done. Good Exposure. The bird is nice and sharp. Nice catch light in the eyes. Nice clean background. I don't see anything wrong with this shot.

    I agree with Doug and David -- welcome to BPN! This is a wonderful first post of a beautiful little bird, and we hope to see a lot of your work here!

    My personal preference would be to leave more of the image top and bottom. It feels just a little crowded to me. Nothing wrong with that perch that needs to be cropped, as far as I can see.

    That's a beautiful photograph, Rahul. I especially like the attention the bird gives you as you capture its image.

    Hi Again Rahul,

    Great first post. Love the bird and the pose. Overall too light so I pulled the curve down a bit. Then I covered the light yellow broken part of the perch with a small Quick Mask. Is this at a feeder?

    Thank you Arthur Sir, for your valuable suggestions on my first post on BPN. Sir this image is taken at Sattal in Himalayan foothills (Birds Paradise )where there is a natural home for these birds. Some people do put grains to attract birds but this I have captured on a natural perch in the forest near a small stream. Sir thank you once again for your valuable guidance.
