Sorry, a bit on the large side; I’ll edit/shrink it when I get home… :frowning:

Yeah I don’t have any problems with the size. I like the pose, the perch and your detail. I find the background a little busy and I would clone away the in focus object at the right edge at beak level.

Excellent detail in the Kingfisher, Jaapv. I might crop to a vertical to get rid of the branch tip sticking in from the right…

The simplest idea of all… :upside_down_face: Sometimes I can be really stupid…:hot_face:

Sweet! Jaapv. That did the trick, I think.
