Good Day to you all at ePz

Thank you so much for your great comments messages and votes following Saturdays upload. i had a wonderful time, on Saturday with Julie, however I think I must of overdone it because I spent the whole day in bed on Sunday.

Todays image was captured a few days ago whilst out and about. What attracted me the most was his incredible song, a beautiful Springtime melody which if I were a Dunnock he would have won me over.

I hope that you all have a great day, for me who knows.

Regards Nathan GrinGrinGrin

7 Apr 2014 - 10:39 AMConstructive Critique!This comment was flagged as constructive critique! 

A great comp with the dunnock really well exposed and beautifully posed. It's a bit grainy for ISO 400, was it a significant crop? If so the bird must have been a long way away give what a great body and lens set up you have! Some halo's around the bird and branch too, could be from sharpening? In my landscape shots I avoid that by selecting below the hill tops for sharpening so I imagine that might also work by selecting within the bird for sharpening too (the sky needing no sharpening) as the edges of the dunnock and branch should be well defined against the bright sky? Just some thoughts, your wildlife images are really excellent Nathan! Smile
