    Super sharp!!!

    There is a family of these in my backyard. They are too jumpy to even try to get a shot.

    Beautiful! Those guys won't come anywhere near Alberta.

    You need a hide, AT or maybe a long lens from your kitchen?

    Really nice portrait RB! The detail is great. One little trick I like to do is to add a little black to the red channel which tends to give me detail in the reds. Generally speaking, sensors have a difficult time with reds and they end up just being a puddle of red. You reds are fairly well controlled throughout except in just a few little areas. Because on the almost solid background, I would also suggest doing a NR and then using a layer mask, bring back in the detail in the bird.
    These are only my little nits, just trying to be more constructive then always saying "great picture".

    100% agree and good tips! Critiques with a bit more meat to them are almost always appreciated by those that are ok with critiques..... but we should be a bit careful and look at the top right corner of the user to see if indeed they want critiques.

    Crap. Sorry about that. In all honesty I did look in the top right corner and read that he was ok with editing his work so I assumed critiques would be fine, I just didn't read further (I would make a bad lawyer I guess). Anyways, I think I know RB well enough (from another forum) that I trust he knows anything I say to him is always meant to be constructive and with a positive tone.
