This is a very well taken shot, the detail is amazing. You caught the perspective of the bird very well. Although there are some areas in the photo where it could be more focused, such as the head but you mannaged to a take a very well detailed shot. The over all vision qualit is great. The impact of the shot was very good ad the originality. Over all I gave vision, originality, and inpact a four and one half, while I gave technique a five star rateing because this photo looked like it took alot of time patience and technique. Amazing shot.
I agree, it could have been just a little more on focus.. but overall I am pretty happy with how it turned out. One thing I miss from my old film SLR, is the focusing ring in the viewfinder... There was never any doubt.
I appreciate your taking the time to critique this shot! And thank you kindly for the compliments.
