[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I seem to have photographed a lot of male Chaffinches while in the hide so a female was a welcome change. Hand held shot with 100mm-400mm lens at 400mm, plus Canon multiplyer of 1.6.
I have taken advice from one of the comments and re worked the image from the original RAW file changing the exposure slightly.

Hi Bryan,
Now thats better having got rid of the burnt out bits on its chest and the branch, Now made an excellent picture.

Hi Bryan

Mrs Chaffinch has posed nicely for you. Your POV is excellent and the out of focus back ground (OOF BG) is excellent. :-)

hello Bryan

nice photo with good sharpness and natural colours



Nice detail and just about sharp enough on the eye at this size. though I think the point of focus is just in front of the eye, just under the neck is where it looks sharpest. Background a little grainy? Maybe something like Neat Image would sort that out (www.neatimage.com).
