Good shot, very nice pose. Exposure could've been a bit better.
Well done.

The white ground seems confused the camera exposure metering, but background is just great. You may use levels (0/1,48/192) and saturation (+10) in Photoshop to correct this metering problem. Values given above are just estimated, as this image is a small one. Nice digiscope job. Congratulations.

Nice shot! You couldn't really win here - with the very bright foreground and dark background some patches of under/over-exposure were inevitable, you choose to go slightly over - and I think that saved the detail on the Kingfisher, so I'd say that was the best choice. However the problem is that the Kingfisher really doesn't stand out as well as he should - the wall in the foreground draws the eye instead. I love the subject matter, and I really like the shadow on the wall too. Well digiscoped :-D

P.S. I've posted a Workshop for you, which I hope you'll like!
