    I like this image quite a bit. The wing position is quite pleasing. Excellent detail especially on the head. Background works very well to make the bird stand out.

    Love the top side view and flight angle with sweet BG. Perhaps a slight boost in contrast but like it as is. TFS

    Very nice. Love the dorsal view and the pose is spot on. Killer background. Lowering the exposure some might help. Nice one.

    I like this very different flight post with the neck drawn in.

    Did you do any work on the BKGR?

    Where in Ocean City? Just checked, there is no Ocean City, NY. Did. you mean NJ?

    Just that slight adjustment added some pop to this beautifully detailed and colorful canvas.

    Excellent frame! Subject is well exposed and isolate and you got a focus right on that red eye! The darks on the repost pop nicely compared to the original. I might crop in a touch as you seem to have the resolution/sharpness to show amore detail. The
    green is really nice, but I'd love to see the bird a wee bit better.

    Hi Artie, background is not untouched. Nothing cloned. Regular adjustments that’s all.

    Let me know if you want me to post a screenshot of RAW file
