A favourite perch at the end of our garden.

I considered a tighter crop but decided to give it space. What do you think?

I like the space..............it gives the bird something to fly into...............and it's good for the viewer..........so a good composition.........I would of cropped the bottom bushes out.........the blurry bushes as they tend to take your eye first............if you know what I mean............GrinGrinGrin

yes, Jeff I tend to agree with your conclusion, having tried going in closer!Tongue But I agree with Julia that the blurry bits do pull the eye off the subject a bit. I guess a little light cloning might help!

Thanks for your input!

Nice shot. I would suggest something different Mod is flipped, a 10 X 8 crop, noise reduction, and some other alterations you can see. View large.
