Greenfinch (Juvenile) 2

By FeatherFriend
Hi all, another view of this youngster but without the food this time. I have lifted some of the darker areas (which are trees) in the BG but not so much that the image looks un natural.
Many thanks for taking time out to view and comment on my Singing Wren and a special thank you to Pete for the HC and Anne (atworner) for the UA, really appreciated

Having just seen Ade's macro of the spider I now feel more at home and comfortable viewing your shot of this greenfinch, Geoff: and what a super shot it is, the detail and colours so good, and the composition within the frame so pleasing.

A fantastic image Geoff
Nice pose and sharp detail showing the bird off well.
One very minor criticism is the blurring of the background has distorted the edges of the leaves, which should be in focus, just takes the edge off a super image. Please correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks Derek, the leaves at the front and back were not as close to the bird as it would seem if I remember correctly. The only thing I did here was to lift some dark lines on the LH side of the bird with the clone tool, I can only put it down to dof or some movement of the branch when the bird landed, the shutter speed was only 1/200 sec.
Many thanks for your comment mate, your views and anyone else for that matter are always valued,
