Striated Pardalote

Striated Pardalote (Image ID 37361)
Photographed byDavid Budd on Fri 22nd Nov, 2019 and uploaded on Sat 23rd Nov, 2019 .
CommentThe strong morning side lighting made it difficult to expose for the bird without over exposing the highlights on the RHS of the tree. Using the radial filter I decreased the overall exposure of the tree and and with the adjustment brush made changes for the slight under exposure of the pardalote. The original crop included the whole of the tree, but this made the pardalote look too small in the frame. Does this make the image unbalanced?. Processed in Lightroom Classic.
