Hello from the critique club

An appealing image that contributes well to the challenge

This is a lovely bird portrait with great focus and DOF in an interesting natural situation. The feather detail is lovely. Itís a little unfortunate that the background is not more uniform the highlights and brown patches are a little distracting but thereís probably not much you could have done about that. I do find it a little too central I think it could have made it more dynamic to have framed it further to the left. These are all really minor criticisms for an excellent nature study, well done Anton.
Sorry, I forgot to congratulate you on your high score and excellent result, well done.

Common bird elevated to art.

I love this DOF... and the composition.

I wish you'd sharpened it so the eye is totally in focus... but it's off a bit... the belly feathers are more in focus than the eye.

Still... a WONDERFUL image!!

Good tones and colours, as well as depth of field and background interaction. I would have framed a little differently to get the eye closer to a golden mean point, or perhaps gone in a little closer still.
