Been looking for a nice image for hanging in my home. I have mainly chosen images that show more of the environment of these birds than just portraits. Be interested in any comments any of you might have.

Thank you for looking. I have moved one or two images within the frame. Hope nobody can spot which ones.

I like this one the best. I think it is the best combination of the bird exposed well and the environment. Plus the action and wing position is good.

Thank you for your suggestions. I had already printed an A3+ image of number 4, mainly because I liked the evening light. But I also liked the others as well. For me a difficult choice because each image has its own memories.

I think #1 would make a nice print. I like the morning/evening light and the wing position showing the feather pattern especially if you can bring out a little more detail in pp but I like as is.

#4 is top pick for me, though I would give a little more space in front of the bird for better composition. The light is beautiful in this picture.

I'd get 3 and 4 printed and swap them every few months.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions. I have printed No $ already, and will indeed alternate it with one of the others. But I haven't decided which yet.

Number 4, for me. Good detail captured in the bird, nice soft golden light and nice pastels in the b/g.
