By SoulOfNature
Hello Guys,hope you are all well,here is another greenfinch from my stint in the hide last week ,all comments,advise and clicks are most welcome.

Last night I went to try and catch the sunset again , tried my hand at this here bracketing technique to try and acheive the correct exposure...Mmmmmmmm a bit tec for me lol,anyway managed to sort it out and then a filthy black cloud appeared so that was the end of that,all was not totally lost though I have managed after faffing about in PS to make a header for my page out of one of the salvaged images lol.

F/ 5.6
1 / 60s
ISO 200
@ 210mm
Cable Release
Frame added in PS.

Thanks for taking the time to look,please view large if you have time and any critique is welcomed.

This is wonderful. The composition and background could not be more perfect. I would've done without the inner bevel thingee but it's still lovely.
