    I love the comp. Neat perch, and good BG (although as posted a small dose of NR to it would be good). The image seems a touch dark, \i'd lift the exposure by a half stop or so, and perhaps a bit more near the face. Good stuff overall. I've had no luck getting hummingbirds to perch nicely on a setup.

    Hi John, this is very nice. Love the perch, the cute little humming bird & the clean BG. Agree on lifting the exposure just a bit. TFS.

    I agree about increasing exposure by a half a stop.
    Otherwise all looks good.
    Nice curved perch, good lookback from hummer and nice BG.
    I like your comp as well.

    Agreed with the exposure, everything else is all good, nice bird, clean BG, good head angle

    I'm glad to see someone is finding one, while it may be a tad dark, the perch is about as hot as can be, the details show much better darker imo. Nice feather details. The Hummer battles have finally stated here, hope to post one soon now that the current boss is more concerned with invaders thatn me. I have very few Hummers this year, seems to be a problem all around this area.

    I love the perch and BG. I agree it could go a bit brighter, but I'm okay as is. I think I would clone the brown bit of the BG with some green material to keep things more uniform. I haven't gotten any of these guys at my feeder yet unfortunately. TFS
