    Hi John, absolutely 'bang on' I would be very happy with this, although I'm not sure about the leaf creeping into frame , your PP has really taken a huge turn, well done!!!

    This is awesome. The BG is perfect, and the pose and detail are fine. Agree with maybe removing leaf. Well done.

    Great stare, nice feather detail, excellent BG. I sorta like the leaf, but could certainly see a version cropped just above it. Nicely captured frame.

    You've nailed this one John. The BG shows the bird well and the exposure looks really good. No nits from me.

    Well done.

    This is really nice, and wet head gives this shot a really unique feel. I vote to leave the leaf since the perch is so simple already. Great details on the bird.

    I don't like the leaf...I love it. That's an angry wet bird with a messed up 'do. What's not to like!
