Not an easy bird to capture, very shy

Good detail and colours just a pity it's looking slightly away.

Hi Nigel, you gave lovely detail and colour in the body of this bird. However the head and eyes are a little soft which is due to the depth of field that the aperture of f5.6 has given, f10 would have given a wider DOF which would have included the head, although you would need to increase your ISO value to keep the speed you have selected which is correct for a hand held shot at 400mm.

The bird is central to the frame, I feel you need more canvas in front of the bird and slightly less beneath, also slight sharpening around the eye.

In my mod I have recomposed the image by adding some canvas to the LHS and removing some from the bottom.
