    This shot is not good in a technical sense but I really liked the lighting on
    the little guy's face so I opted to post it.

    Thanks for looking.

    Why is it not good in a technical sense? I like the lighting, and the composition is creative and different.

    Thank you both.

    Jason,

    I guess I was concerned about having cut off a portion of the Black Caps wing. The light around the head does seem to draw your attention away from that back end of
    the Chickadee.

    Many thanks.

    I try to have some "breathing room" on all of my birds and cropping "limbs" is usually a bad thing. I would like to see more detail too.


    To the OP....Because of the lighting, I didn't even see the missing tail until you mentioned it! :lol:
