brent: they say the 'devil's in the details'...there are many details in this photo that i think takes what could have been a 'bird on a stick photo' and makes it really effective and interesting...the blurred sleet (at least it appears to be sleet), the sharp focus on the bird's perch (had it been soft i would have found it distracting), the way the branches act as a frame around his(or her) head, the gray/blue sky area (which seems to permeate the entire photo), and the cropping (had i shot this, i would have had more negative space in front of the bird, not that back. You did the opposite - but that that is something that really works here! ken

Oh thanks so much for critiquing....

I'm new at this sort of...and working on the cropping, etc.

If I had cropped it differently there would have been a truck

right in view, and very distracting.

Anyhow... I shot this during a blizzard through mothers kitchen window...

window closed, so it took a bit of editing (lightroom) to fix it up.


Thanks so much.
