    Default Stonechat (Saxicola rubicola)

    I saw a pair of Stonechat and I patiently followed as they continually landed on a fence, I persevered and eventually they landed on some bushes, no good too far away........ I was rewarded with this sequence, the images are approx 4 frames apart.
    It is of course a composite image.

    Jon:

    I like it! Sharp, well exposed, nice diagonal takeoff path.

    Cheers

    Super cool! A nicely executed composite! High-key surrounds lends to the wider crops since the subject really stands out. I might add a few points of black since the image feels a bit thin, but that's more
    personal preference than anything else. You'd necessarily give back some detail, so it's your choice to make. A very strong frame regardless!
