Goldfinch

By Keith-Mckevitt  
Hi all, this image was taken by placing a large branch within approximately 18inches of a nijar seed feeder. I used a tripod and cable release on my Canon Eos 20d with Canon 100-400 L is lens at the 400 end. It has been sharpened slightly although the original shot was quite sharp, slight saturation increase and very slight contrast increase. I have attempted to get a natural look without over doing things in PS. Finally I went for a square crop and simple border. Thanks for any comments or ideas for improving.

Excellent planning and resulting quality capture. Nice setting and the b/g colour works perfectly to bring out the bird.
