    Nice image Joe, like the hint of water droplets on the plumage. A bit tight for my tastes.

    Hi Steve, after reading your comment I edited the image loosening the crop. I had the room without adding canvas. Sometimes a failing of mine cropping too tight wanting certain details to show better, kind of focusing on the trees without considering the whole forest. Thank you for viewing and commenting.

    Hi Steve, I know where the line comes from... A spider web I removed in the original post but neglected to do so in the repost.

    Looks good Joe....Nice pose, colours and details on the bird....Great BG and I really like that perch...Yes, more room around the bird looks better....I must admit I am as guilty for the same failing....

    Jo, that's great, I prefer the second image, the details are super and the tones are good, the spider web does not trouble me though I understand most folk would remove it. Pretty neat perch too!
