    Sweet girl Jim, you are posting excellent images from your set-ups, well done. Exposed beautifully with a ton of detail , and the HA is wonderful. I like the splayed white feathers against the black. I like your placement of the perch and bird, BG is so complimentary. Big thumbs up!

    Solid image of this downy. The look back pose is great. I could see a touch more room below.

    Hi Jim, your vertical comp works well, and love the pose against the OOF BG. Overall, well exposed on both whites and blacks, showing good detail. Well captured.

    Ditto all the positive comments above. I especially like the clean bright WHITEs and the inquisitive head turn. John's suggestion for a bit more room below is a good one.
