i am no expert but.. are you sure this is not a female as it looks a little insipid for a male?

can i ask for a minor favour? please crop image to remove the light coloured distraction from the background - obv taking an appropriate amount off both the rear end to balance the image, and from the top to remove the excess headroom...

if it does not improve instantly then let me know and i will eat my hat or cat or something similar

You made me laugh,

Please do not eat you hat or you cat,
Can I crop it in here or do I have to do it in Photoshop

Google "rule of thirds" to see if the bird is in the best position in the frame. Ive downloaded it and checked it using a 10 X 8 aspect ratio, and it will benefit with 18 pixels being removed from the Bottom.

without decrying anyone's opinion or expertise, all 'rules' are just guidelines for when we start out and until we either determine our own preferences, or are in a position to make personal judgement. taking anything off the botom will increase the issue as the bird is currrently on the wrong third.

to WalidD300... if in doubt, try both ideas and see which you prefer, photography after all is subjective even at competition level.

Hi there,

I thought I have used the rule of thirds,

Can you email me the photo you have edited
I googled it but all I could see was examples,
Can you elaborate further please with regard to the message as to how?

Thanks
