I think the brown works OK here, since that is the natural setting of the picture. Not a lot you can do with this shot to make the bird stand out from the background though.

I really like this picture. The bird blending into the tree is the theme of the photo after all. Really cool.

I think the brown is okay.

You could always lasso the bird and brighten it up a bit if you want it to stand out.

Overall sharp, good exposure, nice dof and lovely. However, the bird and the its surrounding is is almost merging into each other.

which, of course, is the idea... this little fella is perfectly camouflaged, and the photo really shows off howwell creatures adapt to blend in with their environments.

i think it works nicely, mainly because you captured nice detail in the bird as well as the area he's nestled into.* i prefer the composition of the first one but think they are both well done.

I am with squirl033 on these two captures which are excellent.

Thanks for posting a couple of excellent shots.

Thanks everybody. I originally liked the pics, but you know...the more you look at it the more you question. They are in my keeper file now.
