    Sharp with a good EXP but the plants in front of the bird do not work for me even though the face is clear ...

    Love the intimate low angle view. Bummer about the OOF vegetation masking the body behind that very sharp and detailed face. TFS

    The plants do not work. Only chance to utilize this would have been a headshot.

    I have to agree with the others. There is simply too much OOF foliage in the FG for me.

    I think you were trying to create a bird -in-heaven look here John but the flat position of the bird and the sparsity of the vegetation don't help .
