Blackbird in a tree. I was hoping for a Partridge in a pear tree, but this was the best I got.

Hi, Nice to see a bird that isn't a robin at the moment!
I think the blackbird could have filled the frame a little more as its got the title role. Probably this was at the long end of the lens so you couldnt get nearer but possibly crop it in a bit now.
Also there seems to be a twig/branch running through the mddle of the bird which is slightly distracting, could that be cloned out a bit?
Great depth of field, i am by no means an expert but hope the comments help
As young al said above, youre probably at the limit of the lens, and the bird, though reasonably well captured, is quite small.
Theres good detail in the bird, and his colorful bill stands out well, and his eye is nicely visible.
It also seems to be shot at a fairly high ISO, so some noise in the pic makes it a little difficult to crop closer.
Ive tried a close crop, noise reduction and a little sharpening in the mod, not sure if its been a success or not.
Thanks for the feed back guys, and yes I was at the max length of my lens. I think I'm getting better as some other shots I took were awful.
I'm not that good with the software, however my lovely wife has booked me on a photoshop course in March so hopefully that will help with things like cloning. Willie, thanks for the mod, it looks excellent.
Good luck with the PS course, I think you will enjoy it, - it can be addictive, - but its better than booze and women, and cheaper, - just ask Tiger Woods!
Banehawi, I did enjoy the photoshop course and I found it very helpful. I will putting my new skills to work on my photos from now on.
