[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another shot taken in my back garden today - beautiful sunny day! This was one of 3 birds that were hopping around and feeding from these flowers next to my fish pond. I stood in the shadow of the fir tree and chose my shots.

Cropped to 600x800 format, I specifically left the small area in the bottom right to "fill in that area", then adjusted saturation [+20], ran high pass filter on 30, flattened and resized, then USM [100, 0.5, 0], then framed.

All comments and crits welcome - thanks, Tim

Nice post Tim,
This is much clearer than your previous post, really good job.
The colours are great, as is the detail and sharpness.
Well composed and good exposure.
Thanks for posting

Wow this is a wonderful view and very difficult to shot at.Beautiful colours and sharpeness. Well done!

Very good and colorful pic Tim. The flower is as beautiful as the bird. Maybe if you framed it a little bit higher, you would have got the entire flower on the top for a perfect shot. Anyway, I like it very much. TFS!

Thank you Tim.

Very nice shot on this one. Excellent color and sharp detail. Nice shot!

Its a nice moment you have here Tim. Personally I prefer the first post to this one. The flash added a bit harsh light. But its subjective. Very well done, Tim. PT.

Hey Tim!. This is a cool shot. I like it very much. TFS! Can see you used the flash on this - Brings the detail out for me - love it!

Hi Tim, very nice shot here. The colours are great and it's a very nice pose. I htink there is a little too much saturation and constrast here but that aside it's great.

Well done.
