Just hanging out at the zoo. Shot at 300mm.

Resize, clarify (2), contrast (+15), noise removal, sharpen and add border.

In case anyone is interested, the noise is from me being a dumba-- and leaving the ISO on 1600. Oops

6 - Nice 'environs' capture. Criticism; looks a little grainy and/or some sharpening issues. Sharper, focal wise, with more definition in the feathers/body (ideally head as well) make this even better in my opinion. Looks like there may be some quality 'loss' in this too from resizing possibly, but difficult to discern.

Beautiful bird. Some of the snow is a little blown but I don't find it matters much in this case. Maybe it could use a little noise reduction. Nice image.

Nice. A bit oversharpened.

Very nice image! You may have used too much sharpening, causing the noise in the background.
