    Goldfinch and chick.

    Managed this grabshot from my back door to my garden where I was pleasantly surprised to see a Goldfinch feeding a chick, except numbnuts here managed to startle them before I could settle down to adjusting the camera settings and getting closer for a few better shots.
    I shot it at 300mm so had to crop a fair bit.

    Yes that is a good idea; providing the original has been saved!

    A nice sharp real life photo.

    Would you do this even if that is the true angle of the tree? Rotate for esthetics or leave true to the scene as shot?

    Thanks for your comments.

    The tree is at its true angle as shot.
    I still have the original photo, any CC is welcome as it helps me with PP.

    Good point, i would have to see what looked better. With the tight crop on the right, my brain says the shot is crooked, even though the tree is truely crooked. I guess it's really a judgment call of the photographer .

    There is no right or wrong, sometimes making a change with an edit, makes a better photo. For example here is the rose i posted today

    Straight out of the camera............

    Goldfinch and chick.


    Full edit and drastically different from what was actually there.........
