Hello, I have done mod for you, Nice imageGrin The thing that strikes me as needing an alteration was the perch needed a straighten, I have given it a small crop of the right hand side, and readjusted the colour, I think your colour adjustment had put a little too much green in the image and not enough blue and red for the colouring in the bird. I added a little sharpen at the end.......... Hope you like itSmile

Its first a very goos shot, and second, and improvement in tone over the last one. Still a bit to go.

I dont know what software you use, but I will append a useful link to remove colour casts, which works if you have Photoshop CS.

First though, check the histogram, and you will find the shot is a little underexposed. Sorting this out alone will affect colour. And remember, these birds dont have a very precise colour thtyre supposed to be, the have a general tonal range thats in the blue spectrum, so theres more than one shade.

heres the link: http://www.dpchallenge.com/tutorial.php?TUTORIAL_ID=24

If you use it, only use it for the bird, ignore anything thats not = bird!

A quick and easy way to get an idea if there a colour cast is Image>adjustments>match colour, and in the dialogue box, click neutralise.

But first, get the exposure upped a bit, then the rest.

Uploaded a mod where whats Ive described has been done, and a crop.


Hope this is helpful,


regards


Willie

Much better, the colours are about right. You are obviously using your flash as the main light source and there js nothing wrong with that. Need not be at f22 though, f16 is enough. You are not in the best aperture range for your lens.

Try and organise perches near the feeding station and birds will sit on those. They will then look more natural.
