The Chaffinch

By arhb      
This is one of several experimental shots I took a week or so ago, after reading a forum topic about exposing to the right(of the histogram) - and where possible. Here is a link to a page explaining why it is preferable. Problems occur with bright light, which is why this shot was taken under cloud, and at high ISO - which consequently made me decide to change the rather noisy bg to something more complementary, and pleasing on the eye.
Thanks for looking.
