    Awful. Well I had to say something different since others will only heap praise I guess. ;)

    On my screen at least, there's evidence of some dodgy cloning/healing in the second shot...... :eek:

    (Bottom right I should add, where the original twig forks off.....)

    Obviously a work in progress;)

    Both great shots though, once cleaned up the second one would be my pick.

    Yes, the pose in the second has more character, and I like the fact that you've given it a little space to interact with its environment in *notes needle twitching on BSometer - hmm, can I get that in English?* OK - how about "space to consider surroundings as well as subject"? No - I can't come up with a straight turn of phrase, hopefully someone else can.

    Thanks for that, I've been trying to clean those smudges off my screen. :(

    The first one is a classic shot and very good :)

    I prefer the bird's pose in the second shot but not sure about the cloned out twig and missing greenery :confused:

    What Chris said. Can't see why you've gardened the twig out; it looks kinda un-natural without it, and the defocused greenery filled a large empty space somewhat.

    Thank you all for the comments.

    Cloning out the branch lower right, I done that to see if people preferred in or out and need to tidy my cloning up ;)

    Green area to the left was not there in the second shot as I had moved position, interestly to me that was an area I was not sure about but seems it would be ok left there

    nice images both and lighting looks great, but I can see a halo around the bird in the second shot
