A terrific sharp shot. Looking at the exif data you could have done this at ISO 100 easily enough, but theres no sign of noise as it is.


It fills the frame, but for me is too close to the frame edge especially on the left.

I would think it may look better with more frame to the left and to, which would make it a printable 10 X 8 format, and Ive loaded a mod, - quickly done to show what I mean.

Technically excellent, - absolutely the right aperture, great exposure.

My name is Baneham, - wonder if Im a distant relative of Banham, - maybe if could get in there for free one day?




Regards

Very good shot. It's very easy to burn out the whites or the top of the beak but this is spot on. Agree with Willie though about needing some more room to the left. Another possibility is to flip it horizontally so it flows from the left to the right.

Best wishes

Catherine

Thanks Guys, I agree that it does look better with more space to the left, unfortunaltely this was the crop I had out of camera but Im sure I can stretch the space around it.

This is little short of technically superb. You do need space in front of the birds head though, and that is relatively easy to add. I would have less at the back, more at the front, keep the landscape format, but reverse the whole image horizontally.

A cracker.

Thanks to you all. I have taken all your comments into account and made the modification as attached, adding more space in front of the head and flipping the image.
I hope to use this image in my local camera club competition. I'm still in the beginner section but with help like I get here, I'm learing fast.
Much Thanks.
Kevin
