A tighter crop certainly would enhance this fine shot Ed.

The title conjures up all sorts of visions Ed. However your image is unsurpassed, superbly captured with great colour and detail. Wonderfully posed against the uncluttered backdrop.

Regards and thanks for sharing

I agree with Nathan on the title, Ed, I wanted to click the thumbnail, but did hesitate for a second. Wink
It's a fine image, with great detail and colour rendition - and the background is excellent...
No doubt a benefit of shooting birds at Slimbridge

Lovely sharp capture of this smart little bird. If it were mine (I wish) I would crop it to make the bird less central but hey, this is your image, not mine.

Good GT image set against a nice background Ed.
I agree with previous comment about crop from RH.
Also, the white cheeks are blown quite a lot in the bright sunlight. I find that I have to underexpose by at least -1.0EV in these conditions, to retain detail.

Ed could be between half a stop underexposed or overexposed here. But who cares because he captured this moment in time superbly.

Top Marks.

Dave.
