Welcome to PCI.

That is a very good click of sunbird a very agile bird would not pose for anyone.

Instead of answering your question  I would rather ask
Is the final result as expected by you.?
If not then what is it that you want to improve here.?

Once you answer above questions we can further discuss on
+ve / -ve about this pic.

Hello Cass.

Welcome to the PCI Forum!  What a pretty bird and in a nice pose too. 

By way of possible improvement, I think I would crop it a bit, to put more emphasis on the bird.  Specifically, I would crop away the left part of the screen with the two big leaves.  That, I think would simplify things somewhat and draw more attention to the star, the sunbird.

You will find that peoples' opinions vary a lot in artistic matters.  Just be true to yourself.   Ideally, your pictures should say whatever you feel about the images you see.   And that gets back to what Yagnesh said above, I suppose.

Anyway, nice to have you aboard.

Some say that those of us who like to talk about cameras should instead go and take pictures. I say we should go and also take pictures.

First not related to the photo.
If you upload in any photography sites like flickr and link it here. it would be easy to view.

In bird photography the aim is to highlight the focus of shot, ie. the bird and surrounding should have a smooth blur (bokeh). If you are getting bird and everything else also in full focus probably you can try keeping the aperture large (lower F number), however it will depend on your camera and sometime smart cams do not allow much flexibility here.

Next would be good to read up a bit on rules of composition in photography, particularly the rule of thirds.

Yes colours are much better. Some CA is seen. Specially near tail.

I agree.

Cropping and processing have helped simplify it.  It's more interesting with either of the cropped versions.
