Beautiful composition...anything I could offer would be purely subjective. If it were mine, I might take a smidge from the top and the right...even then, I'd have to see if to know if really improved the image at all. Really well done.

It's great....and yet...whether it's just me or the way it comes over on the website, it looks strangely flat / two dimensional. Maybe its just me?

Welcome to the website – I hope you enjoy it! There is a lot of useful information by Steve Perry.
His instructional PDFs are invaluable. Purchasing those PDFs from his website also helps support his generosity sharing his experience and knowledge and can be accessed here: https://bcgwebstore.com/

Regarding the photo: Lovely fanning of the tail, which is not easy to capture. The background is clean and the bird well-positioned in the frame. One small suggestion: I wish the bird was looking directly at the camera for “eye contact”, but it is common that the bird looks up as it stretches, making it a difficult task.

Thank you Daniel. I have every book the Steve wrote. The Z 9 book was particularly useful since this is a complicated camera to figure out.
