    Haven't been out in awhile. Hoping to get out soon. Going through some old files to see if I can find new things to work on.

    Lovely colours throughout....Nice detailed perch ....I like the pose on the bird with a good HA....The feather detail you captured looks real good.....Well done Kurt....I personally would like to see more room around the bird.

    This is real nice Kurt. Love the pose, f/g b/g gradient, bird is sharp and I'm fine with the perch. I might tame the highlights on the perch though as well as reducing the exposure a little on the bird to achieve more separation of subject to b/g.

    Hi Kurt ... nice subject , well captured on the stump .
    Posing , sharpness and colors looking very nice . Glad you have the duotone BG .... to break the continous warm tones across the image .
    I would darken the stump in the brighter areas .

    A beautiful shot Kurt. I love the pose, perch and the colour palette here. Nice BG as well.
