    Nice image Joe. The high key background works well and provides contrast with the bird colouring. This is a pretty bird and I like the overall composition. Is this a big crop? Just asking as there seems to be a slight lack of sharpness? Not sure if the extender has something to do with it. I'd want a little more of a head turn towards us. TFS

    Hi Joe, I also like the HK BG for this one. I agree it doesn't seem as sharp as most of your other posts. had the same question as Paul about the crop size?
