    Tom, this is excellent, I love the colours and the pose.
    You may not agree but I see a very slight blue cast in the blacks and the reds look just a little oversaturated to me, I have taken the liberty of editing for your consideration, what do you think?

    Thanks Jonathan.

    I do see the blue cast now but i believe you went too much with the removal of blue, at least in my eyes.

    Lovely looking image, I think the 3rd post looks best. Very nice detail on the bird and great pose. Great looking perch and finished off nicely with that BG. I would be tempted to clean up the bill.

    Will
