Thanks for the right on comments. I knew the shot was too overexposed on the back/wings. I should have cropped it to address the head more. Was seeing if my thoughts were similar and they were. The "poop" was a spiderweb, didn't this it was that that much of a distractant, maybe it was. Van

A tad over exposed, but nonetheless a lovely composition framed by the fence. Bump.

Great idea and capture, but the blown out wing and lower body don't work for me. Also it looks like you captured the bird pooping with the stuff that is stuck in the fence.

Nice photo of a common occorance. I think it fits the challenge well. The light and the tail end of the bird is a bit harsh and seems to wash out the color and detail IMO. 7

this could be improved in my opinion if the colors were more natural looking. You may have bumped into overkill.

Where the sun has hit the back part of the bird is overblown though... The spider web under the bird is a little distracting as well. I like the composition of where the bird's head is.

Seems a little overexposed on the bird's chest area. Pretty bird.

I really like this a lot! since it was advanced editing, I might have cloned out the white spots on the leaves, but it really is a very neat picture!!!! Great for this framing challenge!

The highlights are too washed out, otherwise interesting shot.

I doubt i'll be the only one to point this out, but there are some badly blow highliights on the birds back. very distracting. There is something white below the bird...falliing poop? and the green below the bird is a bit noisy or grainy while the rest of the image is not...odd. Compositionally, a bit to centered.
