Top class capture Ann. I wonder if , since the focus and quality on the GSW is so good, it might benefit from a closer crop ?. Remove a bit of BG behind the trunk on the left and take off some empty space top and bottom. Not too much mind. That would have the effect of moving the bird off centre and giving him a lot more prominence in the frame. He deserves it..
Just my opinion and you may have already considered this.

Another first class image, Ann, the detail - especially viewed large - is spot-on. Brilliant work.

Truly excellent GSW capture Ann - great exposure, colours and detail and in such a classic pose. Must say I have to agree with Ron re possible cropping.

Super shot Ann, but if I may be so bold, take a small amount from the RHS and a similar amount from the bottom, this will do three things.
1. It will put the birds eye exactly on the intersection of the thirds.
2. It takes the bird off centre.
3. It will remove the light blob at bottom RHS and the light bit of twig sticking out from the lower trunk.
Very small changes but IMHO ones that lift the image another level.

Now there's a cracker. Ann. Superb. And you reckon my Sigma 600mm is sharp? That is a top shot - have short-listed it.

I totally agree! You really have improved, Ann, & you are to be commended for being so determined to achieve the standeards you'd set for yourself. Well done.
