CommentI like this image, but am after some feedback on a couple of things. 1) Composition. I feel I may have the bird slightly too central in the frame and suspect that cropping in a bit would help the image, but am not sure whether to crop more on the right or left (or both!). 2) Post-processing. I am using Lightroom and for this shot, I have enhanced the clarity, as well as a bit of vibrance and saturation (also singled out the yellows for a bit of further saturation). I have also reduced highlights, increased shadows, and added some vignetting. I do not have a calibrated monitor and this image looks quite different on the two screens I have used so any feedback on the PP would be appreciated! Thanks, Inigo.
