    I wanted to share this picture and get some feed back. I took the picture a few months back and really liked it.

    Thanks Randy

    Well since no one else has commented on it, I guess I will. :)

    It's very good, other than the fact that it's a little too centered for my liking, use the Rule of Thirds. :)

    Other than that, I think it's really good.

    I am new to this. When you say the "Rule of Thirds" not sure what that means? I will find out about that. Thanks, Randy

    Basically don't center your subject.

    My issue with this photo is that it's not a terribly good representation of a mocking bird. They're much more interesting from the side or in flight due to their textured wings and a more-or-less boring breast.

    EDIT: The original version on your site is much better, at least for detail. You do get some of the stripes on the wing and ruffles around the neck. Still needs to be cropped out of the center of the frame.
