Hi Everybody ,
I'm new to the forum and to like taking digital photography skills as well .This this one of my favorite . If you people can critic composition that will be really helpful to improve my skills. Please let me know how you guys feel like this picture it doesn't need to be about composition

I like the composition and the attitude of the bird...however it seems a little underlit or underexposed to me. Maybe some PP to punch up the bird a bit to bring out the highlights and colors?I shoot Canon and carry Think Tank.

Lightening the bird (and the wall, for consistency), should help both with details and color, and to draw our attention to the bird. Our eyes tend to be drawn first to the brighter parts of an image, which means that now my eye is drawn first to the background.
Nice photo that can be even better with some minor post work.
I'd be happy to see any edited version you might do.

The bird is the main subject, but is on the wrong side of the light. I feel like I'm left wanting a spotlight or something to illuminate it.Cheers, Kurt Maurer

Always okay for dps users to critique and edit my photos for instructional purposes.

I agree with Roshenk & Chip. It's a nice photo that with a little editing will make it look even better.
Also, looking forward to a post if you edit this one.
Congratulations on your 1st Post.
