It's a nice enough shot and well composed. It has fairly good detail, though it's not super-sharp and a bit more contrast would help.

The best way to improve the photo would be to shoot in better light. When it's overcast and getting dark, you're forced to use slow shutter speeds, wide apertures and high ISO, all of which tend to hurt image quality. Here, for example, I think you've been lucky to get a reasonable shot despite the very slow shutter (1/80s when you'd ideally aim for something around 1/(6 x focal length) on this camera, i.e., 1/1000s or so).

By the way, in your description, the 35mm-equivalent range of your lens should be 24-840mm, according to Canon's specs.

Hi Mohammad,

This is a nice image taken of a Miner bird, I like the fact that you have gotten in really close to get this capture. It isn't the best light and as you've said in your description, it was overcast. I think you've done well here and the camera has been fooled a little by the bird being a bit dark but this is because of the brighter background and better this way than an overexposed background. The bird is quite central in the frame and could do with a little more space on the left to look into.

There is a few things that you can do with post processing including brightening up the bird.

I have uploaded a mod where I have Cropped the right side a little and added some space to the left side to give more space for the bird to look into. I incresed the light in the darker areas of the bird and added some red and yellow to the bird. I then sharpened.

Hope this helps

hi,dave and daves.many thanks for your nice suggestions and modification.
actually the sky was cloudy like rainy sky.wider aferture was needed and slow shutter for britness.
also 840 mm optical zoom was not enough to bring closer the subject,so used optical+digital[combined]zoom.but picture is clear.more then this nothing i could do more by camera.this is moment[action like shoot]i had no pc for little adjustment,but can do by camera little increase vivid colour,which kould look impressive.
best regards
