He’s a beautiful bird, Allen. Love the colors. It appears to have some noise in the feathers and some in the wood. Hopefully with one of the noise reduction software you will be able to improve this nice shot. I am not familiar with the Violet-green Swallow, but I love the color and markings.

I like the color, pose, textures, and background. Well done.

Hi Allen,
Beautiful bird and a lovely pose captured. I agree with Shirley about the noise and the bird looks overall soft to me.
