I really like the Nuthatch Ken. It's interesting to see the result of Ted's additional NR. The smoother background causes the Nuthatch to "pop!"

Love the Nuthatch Ken, great job on the composition and perch.
The Downy is a bit too tight all around for my personal taste.

I offer these for visual reference Ken..........

Nuthatch to me seemed to have too much contrast, the blacks were very very deep and the blue'gray wing and 're-breast' had a bit too much color depth in my eyes. So I took it into PS, removed a bunch of Contrast and used my Topaz NR on the BG.

Woody also seemed much too deep in the blacks so did the same as the Nuthatch but also selected the body and worked some more light into it, then inverted my selection to take a little light out of the BG.

Sometimes when you 'see' it how you like it it allows you to work toward getting there with it with the tools you know how to use
Again, merely my rendition of what you have already in your hands to work with, it is your shot with my take on it and you may like it 'your' way best and I am also good with that

Thanks for allowing me to tinker and show..........
Karl

I like both, Ken.
The colorful back and wing of the woodpecker really get me. Love it!
Both images look a bit soft on my monitor, though. I sharpened the woodpecker a bit and liked the change- especially the eye.

I really appreciate your detailed responses Karl (not that you have to do it every time I post, that would take too much of your valued time). Technical and artistic feedback is great to receive, and slowly seeps into my processes and ways of thinking. Thank you.

Thank you very much for posting a comment Thang. AF works fairly nicely with the shorter tubes, which is all that is needed to allow tighter shots (as long as the bird is reasonably comfortable with the close proximity).
