    Really love the feel of this image. The sparkly OOF FG and BG work for me. Even though the subject is backlit (I think), plenty of detail. To my eye, the darker tones of the bird draw my eye in this one (just the opposite of the usual case). Would love to have this one as a horizontal with the subject lower right. TFS

    Hello Krishna,

    I love the subtle tones in this picture.
    I would however reduce the space above the bird slightly.
    Well done!

    Regards,
    Rob

    Very pretty and artistic image. Do you mean it for this month's theme of small in the frame? Also I wish the head was angled toward us.

    Very artistic image. I prefer the bird without a head turn as I feel it preserves the symmetry of the image. Love the OOF sparkly circles.

    Very nice. Like the bokeh balls and the overall design. Fits the theme well.

    Ditto all the positives above and kudos for trying something different. It's not the head angle that is the slight problem, it is the subject to sensor plane orientation i.e., the whole bird is angled ever-so-slightly away from us.
