    Lovely shot Joe, water drops are nice. There appears to be a slight sharpening halo on the bird's leg, otherwise good detail and sweet BG.

    I like the image Jo, nicely composed and good colouration. I can't help but feel the crop is a little too much, if it were a little less I think IQ and noise would be better.

    Hi Jon, thank you for viewing and commenting. Your suggestion is easily done. Here is a repost with less of a crop.

    P.S. I like this better. Thank you for the suggestion.

    Lovely bird. perch and BG. However, I prefer the original crop...too much empty space on the repost. I also see the halo that Colin refers to.

    Very nice simple image. Good perch (love the dew drops), background. IQ looks better in the RP, IMGUW.

    I like the diagonal like and simplicity of the image.
