i took this and i wanted your honest opinions. everyone takes pictures of birds and flowers. please tell me if i did the thirds correctly, yes i did crop and resize for the site. also, if it looks ok because on the lines with the plant in the background, or does it distract from the bird. thank you in advance! john

I really like it. The plant lines does distract after you look at it awhile.My opinion would be toclone out the red tips, and where they over laps the other leaves.

Actually, one of the things that makes this an interesting image to me is how similar the image of the bird's head is to the plants in the background. The neck in the foreground and the stalks in the background coming up from the lower right, the beak in the foreground and the leaves in the background pointing to the left, the black tip of the beak and the red tips on the leaves.

It's amazing to have captured such a natural juxtaposition. I think the image of the plants detracts from the image of the bird, but together I think they are extraordinary.

Did you just whip this up in Photoshop? :-)

And, yes, a little more depth of field would have been good. The tip of the beak and the back of the neck are soft.

thanks everyone!!

tcav,

i just took this picture, i didn't realize what the background would look like.

i just wanted to get the bird sharp, and have the background blurred,

and when i saw it on my pc, i just thought it looked cool because

of lines of the bird and the plant, i guess the bird was a little too close

to the plant for what i was going for. and no ps, i'm not very good with it.

anyway, thank you!!

It's nice to have a brighter pic, but now the top of the bird's head is blown out...
