    Default Redwing in Iceland

    Attached Images Attached Images
     
    When Gail B and I arrived at our cottage there was so much bird chatter going that i thought it might be a wren of some kind; no an icelandic "robin" or Redwing. They did a mighty fine job of collecting worms and the soil on the beak is an indicator this bird as been probing for food.

    Lasso, content aware the lower right a few leaves, also burned the highlights on some of the feathery buds.

    Very nice. Wish the color change in BKG was not at upper bud top and bird bottom (lower would suit me well) - but the image itself, lovely. BKG tones are most suitable and the back tail raise is cute - don't know if it's common pose or not but neat...

    This is lovely, Ann!! Very neat pose and a very neat perch. The color works for me here although I will consider desaturate the BG a little.

    Thats a really pretty shot Ann, just about the perfect angle on the bird, a great perch and that lovely BG, definitely well up the 'keeper' list.

    I really like this one. Great perch and great pose against a perfect background. Not sure if it is just my eyes and it is hard to tell but I think the lighter band in the background is higher on the right than on the left. I would try a bit of clockwise rotation. Also I would add a little more room to the top as the bird looks a little high in the frame. Might be the kind of shot to do a vertical or 8:10 type of crop. Just an idea.

    Perfect perky pose with a great HA.And the perch is to die for.
    I agree with Isaac that you should rotate this clockwise.
    It is a bit unfortunate that the BG color change intersects the bird at this spot but still a great BG.
    I feel like you did something in PP to the flower buds that just doesn't look right. Perhaps you oversharpened them?
    A very nice image!

    Very nice! I love the pose and perch. The BG is pretty cool too. I agree with a bit more room above, but not too much need.

    Hi Ann, lovely pose, good DOF on the bird, and I really like those pastel colours of the BG. I'm fine with the comp/crop as is.

    Very nice looking frame Ann. Love that pose. Very nice detail and colours throughout the image. I like the contrast.

    Will
