This was taken on the same day as the baby hippo. The bird was perched on a wooden pole and was part of a show. There was no barrier between the animal and visitors so I was able to get quite close to it.



Shutter:1/45
Aperture:F/4.5
Focal Length:85
ISO:200

I am thinking that maybe I set my aperture too big? Cause other than the eyes of the bird, the other parts of the body is not sharp. Is the exposure of the picture alright? How about the composition? Thanks for the comments

1. exposure - it is a bit under
2. shutter - it is slow, you'll need faster shutter
to get body in focus, you'll need smaller aperture
3. composition - the focus is too center thus losses subject interest

on the whole, colour does look a bit flat.

i hope you don't mind i edited your photo to show you 1 to 3.

i level up a bit, tone up slightly on the colour and adjust slight contrast, some light
sharpening and cropping.



cheers

i up the colour a little and bring down some brightness, that in turn
result in some red cast.

now it should look ok.
