A difficult question you pose, Brian: I like both the closer crop and these shots with the bird slightly smaller in the frame equally well.
Think I must leave to others to decide.
But another very fine set, Brian.
Ronnie.

Superb work Brian, great poses, perch and background. I like the spacier composition, as Dave Bartlett would say "PLenty of room for the bird"

Great images.

Your wondering: I go with Ronnie here. Personally, I like tight-in shots (sometimes even showing only a part of the bird), but when you want to show scale you have to pull out a bit. It's a question of taste and intention in the end. Smile

That is a difficult question Brian. I do admire the detailed shots which you do so very well, but it is rather nice to see a little more of the surroundings from time to time. I really do like them equally.

I like all your bird shots but had thought recently they ARE better not so heavily cropped especially as your backgrounds are generally diffused, this would also apply to some of my flower shots - less is more, if that makes sense. Well done on all three
