a great capture of a great bird

nice and sharp and great use of a shallow dof

however i think you just need to tweak the mids and shrpen slightly. see below for quick edit. hope you dont mind

Lovely shot and the edit really gives it a lift. What kit were you using, how far was the bird?

kens edit rocks. however again (as mentioned in another thread) the bird needs to be looking into the shot. if this was a crop of a larger shot I would put the birds head in thelower left third of the frame and leave a good two thirds of blurred background for him to look into.

nice though.


edited to add an example to show my idea hope you dont mind
