    Really nice Joe.
    Perfect singing pose, IQ looks great. Perch is good too (hard for Joe Overstreet area as the posts are often new and not so pretty.)
    If I had one wish, it would be to see a bit of variation in the green BG,
    Gail

    Sweet shot Joe well timed, I agree a nice perch too.
    Is there a bit of a magenta cast?

    Nice image, sharp , nice background. I'd consider a 4x5 crop and remove some background from behind the bird.

    Hi Jon, I also thought the image had a magenta cast. After reading your comment I tried to use the Tint Slider to reduce it but the image went too green, so I used the Saturation slider to add green which seemed to correct the color cast. Thank you for commenting.
