Pertinent technical details or techniques:

Here’s a side lit shot I got of an Anna’s that I like for the feather texture that it displayed. Does that background diagonal branch need to be addressed? I’m curious if it needs the work of removing it. D500, Nikon 200-500mm lens, Nikon 1.4 TC, 1/1250th, f 8.0, 700mm, ISO 1600, hand held, AI Clear, Cropped to 2017 x 1424.

Hi Dave. I’d remove it, and maybe bring the shadows up a trifle.

The large image shows very nice detail. Great look at the hummer. Would agree with Dennis’s comment.

The Hummer itself looks good to me, so I would also remove the branch. That said, preferably I would have tried to avoid it in the first place by moving around and see if I could find a vantage point solving the problem. Of course, this is not always possible. Cheers, Hans

Hans Agreed. On hindsight, that would’ve been by far the easiest way to get rid of that branch alright. Hindsight…
