    John:

    High key effect quite dramatic here. I like the framing with the diagonal perch. The stacked effect of the primaries with the light showing through is quite striking. Nice job maintaining detail in the reds, so easy to blow out on these guys.

    Cheers

    The high key presentation works well here.
    A bit tight in the frame for my taste.
    Light is very nice and good singing pose.
    I would clean up the chromatic aberration on the edge of OOF far wing,

    John, nice presentation with the high key backdrop.

    Calling pose is great and nice variety on the blooming branch.

    I see your comp choice based on the perch. I could use a touch more room if possible.

    TFS!
