Hi All,

Some shots from my goa trip last year. Just loved taking pics of this little beauty. For your C&C.

Regards,

@koolsen: since all shots are identical I would suggest that it is better to post only the best from the lot. I would pick the first for its sharpness (the whiskers are visible nicer than in other pics) and overall composition including the bird's posture.

You may want revisit the processing as the colours are not looking right while viewing on my iPad. (Too much yellow)

Like the first one for its potential  :like:

Thanks Vivek, agree they are similar, but the little one is worth the limelight :)  on the yellow bit, I think the colours on the bird seem fine, will recheck but wait for others feedback as well. :)
