Really like this a lot, just one point IMHO I would have cropped approx 30% from the top of the image as I find the branches distracting, and draws my eye to themSmile

I agree with all of the above, including Cliff, however, not cropping does show off that great bokeh. Clearly your skills with the long lens have not become rusty.

I am still working on long exposures, increasing success is being enjoyed but nothing that I would post on EPZ........ My Granny always said, if it is worth having it is worth waiting for GrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrinGrin Hoping to get some reasonable success before senility sets in Blush

What incredible plummage detail. Look a bit knackered though.

I like this shot. Nothing special, but the light, colour, clarity and the birds' pose form a wonderful picture. Refreshing and peaceful..

Looks like the remains of a rough Night W, a great shot though.
