Good pose and background but the bird is a tad soft in both images, have a try in Photoshop and sharpen a little but don't go over the top as too much will have the adverse affect.

Morning Ray, A mod done for you but cannot see as it has done too much from on my screen when I did it??Sad What I did do was used curves to add a slight colour to top and bottom, again a light sharpen and also noise reduction..finally 7% saturation to bring out the pale pinks..
Do hope you like it , but you have two great images here,
Lillian
