of course it works love the way you have presented this image - we have loads of starlings in the garden at the moment I can hardly keep up with feeding them

Afraid I must disagree with Ann and say it doesn't work. The Starling looks like its either floating in mid air or is a stuffed / dead bird.

Theres nothing wrong with the shot of the bird itself though, just IMHO the presentation doesn't work. I'd prefer to see it either inside its frame or without one altogether, and on a perch.

This is bold. As to whether it works or not, well that really is a subjective thing. What would be unthinkable with a rare bird can be perfectly acceptable with something as common as a starling.
Good on you for experimenting.

Very sharp and nicely exposed picture of a starling. I like the idea but think it may work better if the legs remained in the frame and only the head overlapped the B/G as if it were emerging from the frame (reducing the 'stuck on' effect).

Hi Steve,

Great image but nowhere near as effective as Flight of Freedom. The bird really needs to rest on something for it to work. I agree with Vagabond's comments.
