This is a pretty bird! Nice pose and environment. He seems a bit close to the left side. Maybe a bit of a vignette to bring more focus to the bird and at the same time tone down that bright spot in the upper left. I like the look of him talking and great light in the eye.
Welcome, Dave. A very nice pose from this Band-tailed. The exposure and detail both look excellent. You could probably make the eye think there’s more room on the left by taking a touch off the right instead.
Very nice work.
