Great detail where it counts Sylvia but feel this one needed a bit more dof to sharpen the perch as well. The tones and bg are spot on as is the feather detail.

I see where you re coming from, Richard and it is all in a viewpoint. However, in this instance I had actually set up to accentuate focus on the tiny bird by throwing the rather solid and clumsy perch out of focus, but accept that this is a matter of taste Smile

Lovely capture Sylvia - personally I like the focus it really projects the bird from the frame.

A wee belter Sylvia

I can appreciate what Mossy is on about, but it looks as if the perch is on an angle to the camera, hence the loss of D-O-F on it

How delightful Sylvia, they are such photogenic little birds. Yet again you've got another natural background to die for
