    Joel,
    I know you pay a lot of attention to the background - but to you actually plan the gradients, maybe by adjusting perch and camera height?
    Looks great, even better than a unicolor background.

    Joel,
    The background with the gradient came out really nice - the green adds a little punch of happiness to it.

    The bird looks great too!

    looks good to me, but the image is rather small.
    I think for testing a lens, the typical brick wall shot will tell you more about the lens, because the entire "subject" is in one plane.
