For anyone wanting to improve their bird photography techniques, including post-processing, you can't do better than joining and browsing Birdphotographers.net - you might even dare to post there too! I know what would be said about these pictures - the bird is sharp but the background has too much digital noise, there are too many distracting elements e.g. the out of focus branch on the right, that could be cloned out, the eye should have a catchlight to make it look more alive, the head angle should be more towards the photographer, etc. etc. Some of the pictures posted there look fantastic to my eye, but people still find ways they could be improved. One of the things I like about FM is that the C&C is far more gentle but on the other hand I don't think it's as good a learning tool. But we all like to be praised for our good effort s at times! And I agree with Tim - the second one is coming on nicely.
