    Exposure seems to be a bit over. Could have use some fill flash and increase the shutter speed.

    Yes, a very sharp picture. I like it!

    However, you need to be really careful about the background. One of the more detracting things about backgrounds with spots of overexposed skies like that is that it is extremely distracting. Try to position yourself so that the background can be kept simpler. It is hard though, so more practice is necessary.

    It's morning shot. right?
    I thought I see morning sun....
    There are better location to shoot these sunbirds in Chinese Garden.
    Like what PointBlue said, pay attention to the back ground of your shots.
    and watch where the sunlight coming from...

    I think the image is a little soft, the light is kind of harsh, background and foreground are distracting and composition is too center. With shutter speed of 1/320, looks like you have good lighting condition even at ISO100. Usually for bird photography, you want to set your Aperture at f/8 and you can up ISO to 400. Like what others have said, pay attention to you surrounding before shooting.

    great bird shot. but as mentioned the light is too contrasty. wonder if its due to your PS or naturally so.

    If the latter PS can help: do some selective levels and also use the Shadow/Highlight adjustment. And also the reds of the coral tree needs some desaturation.

    distracting foreground, and i don't believe capturing the subject's behind is interesting. lighting is ok but lose the left as it starts to overexpose.
