    You've captured the birds well - really impressed with the way you have managed to freeze the action, particularly with the bird top right.

    I did feel though that the bright cloud in the bottom right hand corner was a bit distracting. I have uploaded a mod where I have made a tighter crop and tried to bring out the doves a bit more with some highlighting and sharpening (someone with some expertise could probably have done this better - I was struggling not push it too far and end up with obvious halos around them).

    Hi there, glorious colour on the flowers.

    Probably less a critique than a matter of taste but I thought there was quite a lot going on in the background so uploaded quite an alternative mod - see what you think Wink

    Thank you for your kind comments, I have uploaded a larger version now (don't know why but I had a bit of a 'moment' and somehow decided that 300px was the correct size!).

    Also - have played around with the crop to reveal more bottom & left but haven't satisfied myself yet (though do agree on reflection that probably do need to).

    Lovely pic, with a great mirror reflection. Have just uploaded a slightly tighter crop as thought there was a bit too much sky... see what you think.

    Great image, wish I'd taken it Wink
    I really like mod number 4 to take it to the 'next level' as it were.

    Good spot though... looks like something out of a David lynch film.

    Great picture, I haven't seen this technique before - it's a great idea.

    I agree with both Spike and Willie above - nothing to add but I'm not sure that taking away the background with harm the image in any way, it's all about the boy on the swing!
