A good study of the bird and food.
Good eye contact, and plenty of food
Very nice well done i had 2 of these in my garden for first time today
You wanted critique, so a couple of thoughts.
There is motion blur so it looks like you did not have a high enough shutter speed. Also there is still a lot of detail in the background. What controls does you camera offer? If you could open the lens more and use a higher ISO speed if possible that would help.
The motion blur is hard to help with. For the background you could use the burn in and blur tools. Set them to a low value and using a mid sized brush you could try gently running them over the background.
On the pose it looks like you put a lot of food out, try a bit less or try and put a pearch near the food to catch them just before or after they get the food.
Also how about viewing point, would being lower have helped you?
Thanks for the comments. Camera has a good set of manual settings. Full PMSA, variable ISO from auto to 6400. Although above ISO 400 tends to get a little noisey. The food wasn't put there by myself, it's a nature reserve and I was behind a wooden fence. I have been trying faster shutter speeds so I'll take that into account.
But I will definately try the burn and blur tools.
