Great capture of this woodpecker. The colors are magnificent. I would crop more from the top to just above the notch in the tree.   Posted: 01/11/2022 14:28:44

Oh! I have photographed a pileated a couple of times, but they don't look as sweet as this! I agree that Mervyn's crop is a good idea.

I might sharpen just the bird with your Select Subject in Lightroom. Let me know if you need more details on how to do that.   Posted: 01/11/2022 19:32:55
