Eyal, The composition is great. This is a good capture. I can see some banding, softness, blur - but that can be attributed to the long range of focus from which you had to shoot probably.

Wish you luck so that you can capture this Birdie from much close and in leisure :-).

Warm regards,

Lovely image. I especially like the repeating dried plant to his right. Nice details of the Stonechat. Good lighting, great BG/dof, and it also has a serene feel about it.

Hello Eyal, this is a suberb and delicate composition of this lovely little Stonechat. Wonderful pov and perfectly posed on the dried flora. The soft and perfect dof makes the Stonechat stand out. You have great details in the feathers and the bird is nice and sharp. Charming.
