    I really like that background, Kim. but for me the bird is a bit high and his looking up increases the feeling of his height.

    Thanks for the comments John. I considered portrait crop to allow more space above bird. Not usually keen on portrait orientation but I will give the cropping another go.

    Plenty of detail in those brown feathers Kim . It would not make much difference to the angles using a portrait crop here i reckon . There is always next time , when i am sure the bird will perch for you in a better spot .
    Regards Woody .
