The photographer is looking for generalized feedback about the aesthetic and technical qualities of their image.
This one is from a couple of days ago. It’s one of the drips that keeps the pools near my blind up to level. Many of the birds like to drink directly from the drip. I think, from the pristine plumage, that this is one of this year’s Black-capped Chickadees, and hes not too sure of the system yet. They usually seem to have to get a nice big drop in their face before they figure things out.
I need to work on the background of this setup. It has a tree behind it with a lighter colored piece of wood that I attached the deer fence to. In this case, the tree didn’t cover the whole background, so there was a very bright strip along the right edge that I painted over. I don’t know if that worked well or not.
Sony A1, FE 200-600 @ 600 mm, Tripod with gimbal head, f/6.3, 1/1250, iso 2500, manual exposure. Processed in LR & PS CC. Aside from cleaning up the ugly background, just a little enhancement of the feather texture and a crop to 5201x4170. Taken July 16th at 9:16 AM under cloudy skies.
