    I went back for another shot at the Mockingbird this afternoon and strangely enough he was in the same darn bush. My neighbor liked this shot and as I owe her a favor, I figured I'd print it up for her. I've cropped a bit from the sides but as it's a fairly busy shot with all the branched and all, I figured I'd get your opinions / comments as to whether this works as is or if you'd crop down to something smaller / different?

    Thanks in advance....

    Jim, I would....

    I would crop it a little tighter if it were me. I know that you only have a finite number of pixels, but this one is a little too busy for my tastes. A heavier crop would improve this IMHO.


  3. a little tighter as Frank said, and crop off more from the left. Just my 2 centavos, ask the big guns here what they think.

    Agree with crop. At least take off the light glare on left and that branch on the right.

    The Big Crop,

    I brought one of you birdies you put up the other day. Cropped quite a bit and increased the contrast and the red channell a bit.. Huge difference.

    The berries and birdy really stood out well. Think I did a little contrast to.

    I don't know how you guys catch the "little" birdies. I have trouble with a buzzard... lolol

    Best to ya.

  6. Jim, I would crop it tighter with some off the left as well.
