    I like the composition here. If you had moved a bit to the right, you could have got the dark head against a lighter background to make the head stand out. The branch on the left balances the image well. I would marginally increase the sharpness. Thanks for sharing.

    The framing is nice. The shades of green look good. I liked the composition. I agree about moving a bit to the left. A slight higher aperture and bit more brightness would have been good. Look forward to more.

    This position where the bird is facing away from you, though needed to document plumage details etc, is rarely pleasing. The reason is you need lot more depth of field to capture the tail as well as the head. In comparision, a side profile becomes easy to capture as the entire bird is in the plane of focus. In this case, you could have easily used f8 or even f11.

    The overall image is dark, and needs more exposure.

    Cheers,
    Sabyasachi

    A difficult image under any circumstances and difficult to correctly expose for.
