I had to up this to a ten, against my usual rules, to combat the odd scoring in POTW.

If this doesn't win . . . well I wouldn't be surprised.

But in my view its the winner up to Friday and now I'm away for the weekend.

nice shot John,love the comp. The dark background brings out the lovely colors on the branch and the bird's feathers.

Have to agree, great shot - perfect composition, very sharp, and uncluttered background. Have you manipulated the branch at the bottom right at all? It seems to be glowing :0)

Hi Gav, I was a bit worried about that too, but didn't have time to correct it. It's an out-of-focus beam of light, which shines though a row of trees, which I use as my back drop. I have a pond beneath where the bird is perched and at certain times of the day it produces the perfect fill in, better than any flash gun. lol. lol.

Fabolous expression/poise from the bird. The glowing outlines - birds head and bottom right I would clone - takes the focus away from the bird IMO. I would be very proud to take something half as good as this. Bravo
