Welcome Raimu.

A new member, and your first upload is for Critique.

This is a Pheasant, and its quite a good shot of this attractive bird.

I dont think they wake people up, but maybe you have special ones in Finland!

The image can be a tiny bit sharper, and if you crop so the bird is off centre, it can improve the appearance.

Ive done all this in the modification to show what I mean; click the modification button below the image to see it.

Enjoy the site


Regards

Welcome from me.

It's a nice characterful shot. I'd like to know what processing you have done...

You placed the bird centrally, which is the conventional approach but it tends to look a bit prosaic. There are more engaging options...

I've uploaded two modifications placing the pheasant off-centre. The textbook approach would be to place it on the left looking into the frame. That's my second modification.

I much prefer the first, balancing the bird against the two trees.

See what you think. I slightly lightened shadows too, by the way, which gets a wee bit more detail into the dark feathers.

Thanks for the feedback. I wondered if you had enhanced the colour on the feathers. You were lucky, he's a magnificent specimen.

A reasonable shot of a male Pheasant. The comments above will all improve the image. It does need to be that bit sharper and you will find that almost every image will benefit from some processing in software. That is now so much easier than it once was.

And a belated welcome form me, too, Raimo.

I note that you will be reading the comments with the aid of Google translate. I'm sorry that this may make things difficult for you - please ask if anything that we write is not clear.

Is your camera set for the highest possible quality? If not, you will be losing detail in the pictures, which is a pity.

I look forward to seeing some of your edited pictures in the future.
