This is one of my favourite photographs. This is my first “critique” post and I am primarily interested to see how it displays on the site, and what adjustments I should make (technically) before uploading images here.
What technical feedback would you like if any?
What can I do better technically to present this image on NPN?
What artistic feedback would you like if any?
All welcome, but that is not what I seek.
Any pertinent technical details:
None that I can think of. The original shot in RAW at 4500X3000 resolution.
You may only download this image to demonstrate post-processing techniques.
Hi Peiter. The colors in the bird look good to me as does the resolution. The blue sky looks a bit more saturated than normal, but I have seen skies that blue, so it may be accurate.
I know you didn’t ask for artistic input, but this crop does feel pretty crowded to me. I think a touch more room on the left and bottom would be nice if you have them.
Beautiful detail and a great pose.
Haha, yes, that is exactly how I have it hanging on my wall. Well done, and thank you for the compliment.
Amazing birds! Nice eye contact, detail and color. Perhaps a bit oversaturated and as mentioned it is cropped pretty tight. If you are into additional processing you could remove the OOF limbs below the roller
