Nice colour and detail, could do with a little more space on the LH side in front of the bird though.

Nice shot, I agree the crop is slightly off tho, needs a shove across to the left. What ISO etc. is this at? You always just put "digital".

Karen really good image, but it does look a little bit soft around the face and beak. Maybe a little bit more sharpening??

good shot. the head to me seems a little soft. i would prefer to see the bird more on the right of the frme giving it space to point into.

Captured at a nice angle, but the head and beak are a little out of focus. Lovely soft colours.
