    thanks. I am leaving this weekend for 3 weeks of sun and sea without internet. So I had to submit entries to any contests that I planned to enter. Plan on being back sometime after the first week of Feb.

A beautiful shot of this male Cardinal bird perched on the lichen covered dead branch watching you below with the clear blue sky providing the perfect contrasting backdrop. Beautiful composition, framing & lighting taken with superb camera techniques & sharp focus.
Good luck in the contest.

I really like the clean look and the simplicity of this photo and how well the red cardinal is standing out from the pale blue sky. I also like the way the branch is framing the bird.

Your focus is spot on and sharp showing such clear and well defined details in every part of the bird, and the exposure is perfect.

I also think the format you have cropped the photo into works well, and the bird has got a perfect placement within the frame. Indeed a lovely and well taken photo, and with an excellent DOF. I wish you luck with the contest.

This is very nice! I like all the sharp detail that can be seen of the feathers and his face. The light in his eye really stands out well from the black mask. I like how the branch fills the space across the lower frame.

Looks like a pretty good entry into the competition with the bird being orange-red nearly all over! Your full and central composition delivers us a very enjoyable look at your bird. Exposure and sharpness are fine. Well done and good luck!

A fantastic capture of this Red Cardinal, looking in more of an orange mood today, perhaps due to the lighting or my vision lol. A Great entry for the competition, showing great detail and clarity of the intricacy of the subtle patterns and changes in colour in the wings and breast of this bird, and it's amazing little black beard and over the nose moustache that always makes me smile. Great POV, nice lighting and good perspective and contrast with the branch upon which it sits, and the clear, light blue sky behind. Great shot, well done and good luck in the polls! :)

Great entry for the red contest. The cardinal is a stunning red color and the pale blue background shows him off well. Love the curve of the branch and the framing of the bird. Nice details and good luck in the contest.
