Yellow Rumped Warbler

Taken several days ago at a local NWR.
It was quite cooperative although it moved very quickly and didn’t stay still. It was hanging out on trees with a lot of small branches. I did some cloning on the branches to make the image less distracting.

What technical feedback would you like if any?


What artistic feedback would you like if any?


Any pertinent technical details:

Iso-500, 500 mm 5.6 PF plus extender at 700 mm, F8, 2500th, handheld, 60% of full frame, Adobe camera raw 11.2, Topaz adjust, TK sharpening action at 5%

You may only download this image to demonstrate post-processing techniques.

Hi David,
I like seeing the yellow rump and we have a clear view of this guy after your cloning work. Nice placement of the subject in the frame. A nice “in the wild” catch.

That new lens is looking pretty good, David. Very nice detail in the Butterbutt. I’d probably have gotten carried away and kept on cloning, but I think this works.
