Red's Snack

By strawman
Another from yesterdays challenge. As a switch to a new camera I am also playing with different RAW processing and editors. This one again is at the lens wide open ISO1600.

your views are welcome, its just not quite sharp enough on the head I think, what is your view. and then I notice the bits of twigs at the rear and the nut on the branch. so plenty for Will to pick up on to get better.

I bow to those who master such things.

1600,,, not a bad result. But you have answered your own questions... Not pin sharp on the head and the annoying twig..
It was a bad light day and we all suffered from that.
More fun than satic mountians.. Smile

Sorry John, not meaning to ignore your stuff from Monday.

Firstly this looks a little too red on my monitor.
Secondly the head looks a little darker than the rest, which I'm not noticing on my own images from the same pose. Thirdly, yep that little piece of twig was highly annoying and is in loads of my sharpest images, as this was probably the best light of the day.

Will take a look at some of the others.
