    A little busy with the leaves over the body but you can see the eye, and brightly coloured bill. Goes to show they will build their nests wherever, so long and it's a safe haven. Guess the nest won't be bothered by flooding or foxes?

    Both Colour & sharpening appear OK, you could add a bit more saturation on the foliage and the rock could Goa little lighter and there is more detail to extract. I think you have added to the backdrop as there is some artefacts.

    Something different Jon and nice to see a better SS too.

    Hi Jon .. the subject , setting and the captured behavior is looking good to me .
    Color , tone and details ... are spot on for me in the main areas .
    I might run some more NR to some parts in the FG and BG
    The BG does look a bit undecided .... IMHO ... left side too dark or right side too light , if you know what I mean by this ??!!
    Personally I would darken the FG more

    TFS Andreas
