No crop. Bunch o stuff in the Gimp, including dodging out ciggie butts.

Post Challenge: very pleased with the comments. I had a bunch of shots from which I chose and edited this at the last minute, and possibly might have done better, but then again maybe not. And I did have fun with this dapper little strutter. Thanks, peoples.

Well seen! And cropped/processed. Personally I would crop a wee bit more from the top to eliminate that stanchion top left, and it would pull the attention more fully onto your subject. I think this was under-rated!

Very cute :-) I like the composition and the bird's shadow adds a nice touch, along with the shadows of the fence we can't see. The bird himself looks a little plasticky to me.

Love your subject matter and great composition. Wish it didn't look so flat on my monitor. I love the shadows and lines!
