Morning Trev,

A nice capture of this chap in the tree, well done. Trev I guess this is a cropped image? if it is, and you get the chance, try cropping the original again but this time closer to the bird on the right and extending it on the left giving more room for the bird to look into (does that make sense Wink ). Just my opinion Trev but it might work ok.

Take care

Thanx Barbs, Martin ,Trev and Len

Martin Thanks for the honest critique and I do take your point, I must admit whilst concentrating on the form of the tree I put less of an emphasis on where the bird was looking. I could have made a tighter crop however the 70-300 VR can be a bit soft at 300mm, or is that a bad workman blaming his tools Wink.

Hi Trev,

I totally agree about the softness at 300mm my Nikkor 55 - 300 is the same but anywhere between 70mm and 270mm (ish) It's pin sharp.

Keep clicking Trev
