    This is my favorite so far. You got the whole bird parallel to the sensor and sharp, great environmental BG and beautiful colors throughout. TFS

    ps
    Love that raised foot...

    A beautiful bird and great light. I just love the red feet and the raised foot makes the difference here. Not a fan of the large rock. Maybe lighten the dark browns slightly and smooth out the prominent lines in the back if you choose. Very nice work Sanjeev.

    Sanjeev, very nice light and to see a foot is key on this one.

    As David mentioned, getting the bird parallel worked out very well for you but I second the comments on the abrupt dark line caused by the rock as well and the branch going up diagonally to the left of the rock.

    TFS!

    Like the bird and the light but that bright rock in the BG really pulls the eye away.
    I am also missing seeing the other foot. The leg feels very cut-off.
