Unbelievably unprofessional approach in my opinion, friend Parthasarathi! Again !

Hi Parthasarathi,
Really a wonderful background for a bird with severe problems of focus. Additionally, composition could be improved by lowering the bird and aligned with the left third. Greetings, Thanks for sharing. Jesús
