Hi Michael, Nice image of a tree swallow. Perhaps a tighter crop of the bird, without that little twig on the top of its head would improve this image. I like it. Regards. Steve

I agree what Michael stated in his critique, a bit tighter cropping will emphasize on the main object ( Swallow) . As your DOF and sharpness is fine, that will not harm image quality.

Goodluck, Mehrdad

A nice image, Michael, and one that could be greatly improved. First I would crop off much of the top of the image, it does nothing but divert attention from the swallow. I would also rotate the image so the wood framing is vertical to the horizon. Lastly, I would clone out that plant as it only serves as a distraction.
