This reasonably used to humans landed on a nearby post and posed. After it realised I was not proffering food it left.

Hi John,
Nice portrait. Good bokeh in the background. My only suggestion would be to straighten the image.   Posted: 11/06/2021 09:52:26

John, Very nice image of Jackdaw; I would agree with Barbara and straighten the image and if it were mine I would increase the contrast a bit.   Posted: 11/07/2021 10:16:57

Hi John,
Great capture on the Jackdaw. I agree with the above comments on straightening the image and I would do a slight crop to take out the small section of fence rail. Although most of the bird in in sharp focus I would suggest you make sure the eye is tack sharp.   Posted: 11/07/2021 16:25:09

Hi John, This is a lovely image, great texture on the feathers, I'm instantly drawn to the bird's gorgeous eye. I agree with the above suggestions. If straightening the image makes the crop too close on the tail feathers, you may want to consider adding a vignette.   Posted: 11/17/2021 08:56:44

Hi John, A very nice image of the bird in a natural environment. I agree with the other suggestions especially increasing the contrast and trying a vignette. The eye focus is great!   Posted: 11/17/2021 09:34:07
