Welcome, Timothy. I like this image. The curve of the trellis mzkes an excellent prrch without detracting from the bird. The Mockingbird is well exposed and looks sharp, and you have a beautiful mottled background that evokes a nice forest feel. The only improvement I could see is if the bird turned its head toward you just a tiny bit more, but that’s very minor as the feel is that it’s looking into the distance and concentrating on something out there.

I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Timothy, the bird stands out very well against the inviting background. The details in the bird and the interesting curve of the trellis look good.

You might play with the color balance as everything looks tinged a bit green. But it’s a great shot with good detail and nice background.

Thank you, the back ground is a dormant crepe myrtle tree
