Thank you all for the compliments and critiques.

I agree I dislike some of the "stray" branches at the bottom and its a little distracting to the composition which is flowing diagonally inc. the birds beak.

I have cloned them out, and might it out now

The newest looks quite nice. Since we are in critics corner, I have to say that the partially shown branch in the bottom left bothers me a bit.

Your last shot -

To return to the original question, yes, the approach works. FWIW I prefer it to more conventional approaches. And I expect it would be more saleable if that's relevant.

The last one certainly works very fine as well as 1m2.
2m2 I find too small for the frame.
I am very fond of this type of bird photography.
It works similar to human environmental portraiture.

Yes ... works for me!
He's just saying ... the centre of the picture is just *there*.

I appreciate a tight detailed bird photo, but like them in environment better. They can still be large in the photo in that case as well. I see it as documentary versus story telling.

if I may say so in case of the kingfishers I like second re-done version (a little more cropping could also work). In case of the Heron I prefer my original despite mostly central composition (I am not one to follow rules )

Thank you folk for commenting. As for the framing these are straight out of the camera (been trying to compose as much as possible in camera). But there's plenty of pixel in there to cropin and re-frame.

As per advice above I have reframed #1-3 to be more rule of thirds friendly (#4 was just meant to be an example of something I felt was more common than first 3)

#1m2


#2m2


#3m2
