Cracking shot with great eye-contact.
A tad flat so I did a mod.

Its is indeed a super shot Chris.

Good focus and sharpness on the eyes, and that stare is terrific.

It look like the light on the day was a little dull, - so it has resulted in a lack of contrast and it a tad flat. This is only something that can be sorted out post processing.

Heres a few suggestions:

When you re size your image for EPZ, you will normally have to re sharpen it, - the compression to a smaller file size makes it soft., - so Ill bet your original is sharper than this upload. My mod has been sharpened quite a bit.

Depending on your software, - I used PS CS4, use a curves or levels adjustment to provide more contrast, which also warmed the image a little.

I also suggest cropping a little space from the bottom, and adding space to the right, this is to place the bird off centre, and align one of the eyes o a third.

Ive done all this i my mod, - hope you find it helpful, and if you jave any questions just send me a PM.

The mods ar all similar to the edited versions i have on my computer but whenever i upload an image , an edited image , the upload will come out as the original?

Any help would be much appreciated. I have probably missed something very obvious :|

Thanks ,Chris
