i went up to the forest today it was bright and sunny with a cold wind. There were many of the little song birds about looking for food. This picture was cropped and resized for TN with no other work done.

Hello Nick,
What a splendid light on this Blue Tit. The contrasts against the dark OOF BG are so beautiful. Excellent sharp details. Great DOF, composition and POV.

Nicely done, Nick.
For instance a very accurate depth of field.
Sharp. Beautiful out-of-focus background.
Catch light in the Blue tit's eye.
