    good ol picasa saving the original!
    Don't think that duck would like you cutting it's ass off like that.
    I think you need some background for the effect too, my thoughts were too much white at the top.

    Some 'exotic' bird from Australia.

    Exotic only if you don't live in Australia.

    The crested pigeon - common throughout Australia.

    Fat front view.

    I really like that first shot. Great clarity! In the second, did you intend for the sharp focus to be on the background behind the bird? It's still a great shot though, I love how the bird perched on his hand, and I like being able to see the background. It makes me feel like I'm there

    Lovely photos here - Chickadees were sweet - never seen them in real life
    and the Crested Pidgeon - that's also a new one to me!!
    Here's an every day Swan taken recently at Wisley....

    I love the contrast between the swan and the background. Also great clarity in the feathers, and I love the way you captured the ripples the swan is creating as it swims into the still water. However I find the "frame" to be distracting on the left.

    Excellent swan Geoff - nice one (say it fast!)
    Around every picture there's a corner & round every corner there's a picture
    - the fun's in finding them

    Thanks for the kind comments
    I will maybe post an un-cropped version to see what you think (- I am currently away from my own PC with the photos on) Do you think the crop was too close or that the image or just not like that sort of framing??

    PhilD - yeah - got that!!
