I am a bit undecided about the background on this one (never mind the perch.....), your comments would be greatly appreciated...

Super image, David.
IMO the background is very unnatural looking.
Single colour BG's don't happen that often in nature.

I agree I put the grey background there just to see what it would look like.. I am still undecided myself due to it not being a natural background....

Lovely image.
The bg colour is OK. It's the uniformity that detracts. Introducing a gradation, maybe, might help (?). Smile

Agree!
I would also crop some of the image from the top, to put the eye on the top third.
Good detail and pose though.

Not sure about the background but it definitely makes the Blue Tit really stand out so it works for me David. Cathy
