another one for a wildlife competition. Is there anything else I need to do to improve the shot?

FABULOUS!

Just a little empty in the uper left but that is one great picture. I don't think it distracts enough to matter.

Short of using a time machine to go back to before you took the shot, and clipping that little bit of vertical growth in front of the bird, nothing. Composition, exposure and focus are spot on. If the judges don't like this, we'll chip in and buy them some specs, eh?

Aladyforty, a quick edit just to show what it may look like if you made the changes suggested by Brian, leaves snipped from the front and rear of the bird.



And with a little off the side.

If you are already fluent with the Clone Stamp tool, forgive me for trying to 'teach Granny tooops eggs' or trying to 'teach an old dog new tricks', (I'm not saying you are an old dog, but I do know you are a Granny :-)), but don't forget to reduce the hardness of the brush when needed and it doesn't hurt to reduce the opacity of the brush, particularly on the larger areas,then you can build them up till it's just right.

EDIT: For oops eggs read s u c k eggs, it won't post s u c k :roll:

Yeah you're right, it's in the spell check. It must be set to change it in case anyone issaying somethingderogatory to someone else, as in " this picture sucks" or "you oops".

sucks is OK then :-)

I know Im not meant to do this but what do you think of my edit, I had problems with the background, now when I look at the original I see a big blob of darkness on the lft side, I tried to remove it but now I cant be sure if I got the edit right
