    Nice Jonathan,details look good sharp. Wish for little more head angle and my preference tad more on the bottom.I do see some magenta cast in some of the breast feathers. Not sure if that is natural . TFS

    I do not see the magenta, but I do agree with Kevin's other points. Nice details. In these times we get what we can eh!

    Nice one Jon, good detail, but as mentioned earlier it's just too close at the foot and I don't like the OOF batch on the LHS at the foot. Nice to see the feet.

    If you haven't seen it, you might like to watch AR's latest YT clip.

    Thanks everyone, I agree regarding composition but this was the best i could get, it was a real tangle beneath, so I did tidy up a little but it would have been impracticable to move him higher in the frame.

    Steve, yes I saw it! ...No flies on this boy, early bird and all that!

    Agree with the others so far. A nice pose and some nice light.

    Perch is great, just wish it was higher as mentioned by others. Agree with comments regarding head angle. Feather detail is outstanding.

    A bit late to the party.
    Agree with HA issue and the stuff at the bottom of frame but loving the feather detail!
    I would clean up the stuff on RHS of frame.
