Feedback always welcome!

Edit: Saved the less sharpened version. I wouldn't have changed it but I felt the same way before I posted it. I originally saved it to share with my home folks and they like 'em sharp!

Extremely nice colors and pose, Wannabe, and the bird appears to be nicely in focus. The sharpening on the cardingal is a bit more than I would personally set it. I tried toning it down just a touch in my paint program and like the result better (but this is purely personal taste and not a suggestion).

Norm,

Thanks for the comments. See my "edit" message above (lol).

(Had to hit a man where he was already feeling sub-conscious, eh?)

I like it better now, but sharpening is always so subjective. It's always a good practice to save the original unprocessed photograph no matter what. I always keep the original untouched version of everything and it's come in very handy since the eyeball is sometimes deceiving and 24-hours can do a great deal to tastes.

Cheers

Good shot wannabe. The background works nicely here. It's colorful but
open right around the bird which gives it a good effect. I agree with Norm,
sharpenning is a matter of taste and time can make a difference. There are
many times that I will process a photo today, then look at it tomorrow and
be unhappy with it, pull in the raw file and rework it. Another reason I keep
raw files is cases were I will have a photo that is "almost there", because maybe
sometime someone will come up with a tool or a process that will bring it home.
