    Default Broad Bill Hummer

    I made this image in Madera Canyon Feeders.

    I wanted to sunset time because I wanted the bright green leaves in the background. I used fill flash.

    Set the ISO the max I want and then set the focus point on the perch (existing Perch) which I want them land and waited for them come.

    Nikon D850, 500 PF +1.4x TCIII
    Info 1/500s f/8.0 ISO3200
    Fill Flash +1 EV

    Post processing:-
    I got a new Mac mini m1 and it has been a challenge to get the filters to work
    Photoshop with M1 does not support filters (Nik and Neat Image)
    So I used a combination of Affinity Photo and Photoshop

    Raw Processing Capture One
    Nik Filters
    Neat Image
    Photoshop and Affinity Photo.

    Hi Krishna ... lovely capture overall .

    Personally I think the flash light has created " flat " lighting ... and the subject does have a " HDR feel " , might be a result from having not " form " in the tones .
    Not knowing the subject ... I just guess that the feather structure does look a bit oversharp to me .... might come as well from the flash .

    Sorry for being harsh honest .... personally I am not fan of flash photography

    Bird looks nice, too much perch,,, I would crop vertical 4 x 5 with the bird centered. you probably have the pixels.

    The feathers do look strange , almost pointillistic ... Not sure why. Agree with Dan on too much perch.

    The framing and pose on the hummer are right on. I do like the background.
