Hi Ray

I have never got close to one of these let alone photograph it.

I have done a mod.

1. I have painted over the whiteish area on the LH side as I felt that distrcted a bit.

2. Cloned out some distraction in the bottom RH corner.

3. Using the overlay layer, darken the branch.

4. Flattened the layers.

Hope you like it.

A lovely capture and strong comp. I would however say the bg is a bit noisy when viewed, but not the bird thankfully. Lovely detail in the feathers and colours true to life imo.

A lovely clear image of this smart looking bird. Gill

What more can I say? Love it, particularly your capture of the gloss on the red feathers. We have a flock of these beauties working the local park, but they are so quick I stand no chance of getting one.

We spend a fortune each week on food for the birds, itís great to watch them feeding but we have never seen one of these on our bird table yet. Well spotted and done Ray.
