    Hi Thomas ,iam one who alwys wants to fill a frame with small birds ,to me and my opinion only Thomas there is to much flowere for a small bird ,i like were its sat in the cup of the flower ,i also think the flower head below left is ok,i would crop i third of the bottom ,doing away with the four stems and flower head,leaving just the tree at the top,that in my opinion would make a more pkeasing composistion,if your PP was good i would also clone the flower and stem out of the shot leaving just the two and the bird ...

    I love this. The bird looks great on that flower and the colors of the whole shot are very pleasing. I love the soft tones to the shot and as usual your shots are processed really well. I recently had this issue with out of focus flowers on a sparrow shot that I posted. I decided to keep them in as I thought it balanced the shot well. I also chose a very similar crop to the one you have here. I think they shot might look to bare and if the left and right most flower are removed.

    Lovely capture of this beauty. Stonechats have wonderful colors in their feather patterns, and you've caught them all. I happen to like this small in the frame crop, and love all the colors complimenting the bird. Well done Tomasz.

    I like this crop aswell. With the bird perched on the only open bloom, it is the centre of attention, and immediately draws the eye. Nice colours.

    Thank you all. I agree with Issac that removing those 2 out of focus flowers would make the picture less pleasing to the eye. I think they make it more attractive.

    Lovely image, Tomasz. The only thing I would have wished different would be the feet showing but with the cup shape of the blossom just not possible. Lovely composition, beautiful background, nice techs. Thank you for sharing.
