    Sweet, sweet canvas IMHO. The light, the perch, the BG and the details all spot on. TFS

    This is a very pretty frame Joe.
    I like the image design and the lovely BG and simple perch.
    I would reduce the overall brightness modestly, clean up the cloning artifacts in RUC and back off a bit on the sharpening of the bird.
    Worth the extra PP to make this image shine!

    Joe, the simple composition makes this one for me.

    The bird appears fairly sharp and that long green reed tells a story as it exits the frame. Bkg compliments nicely.

    I think I see the same thing Gail saw - easy fix.

    Nicely done.

    pretty frame Joe, I like the comp and delicate balance, agree contrast and brightness can go down a bit

    Hi Gail, thank you for viewing and commenting. I see the artifacts but don't know what they are. I didn't do any cloning on the background but I fixed them. I also cleaned up the eye and worked on the tone mapping in this repost. Thanks again for another set or eyes...

    Sweet frame. Lovely light, bird, and comp. RP finishes it off nicely. Thanks for sharing.

    Sweet bird and light and BKGR. I find the leaning forward pose somewhat awkward.

    Hey Artie, thank you for viewing and commenting. After reading your comments I can see that the pose does look a bit awkward. Here is a repost, better I think.
