Nice theme for this time of year, Mike. Really good color and detail and sharp focus as well. The snow on the branch tells the whole story. He looks like he's ready to leave any second.

Mike,
A beautiful picture of this male Cardinal bird perched on the tip of the snow covered dead branch watching you closely with one eye, the snow falling around him. His red plumage contrasting beautifully with the snow in the background. Beautiful composition framing and lighting taken with superb camera techniques and sharp focus.
Susan

His color looks great and I like the capture of the falling snow around him. He looks like he;s thinking about taking off. The branch is nice and the snow on it looks good.

Mike this gent is just fantastic!

Your colors are perfect and your vision to see this as a landscape really captured that whole body perfectly.

Great technical specs on this one.

    Thank you very much. I might have liked the snow to be a bit more obvious, It only shows up against something dark and then not very sharply. Glad you like it though. Thanks again.

Beautiful male cardinal in the snow, I can see the snow falling onto his red feathers. The cardinal is such a beautiful bird, this is well photographed with good focus, the image is clear, exposure is well managed, the colors and tones show true. Nice detail in feathers, face and beak, good view of his eye, he stands out beautifully from the m the silvery background. Well composed and presented! Best wishes to you in the contest!

I love Cardinals and this shot shows why. They deal with the cold weather and look so good in snow.
I love the pose, White balance control and the sharp focus. Only suggestion is to lighten his eye a touch more.
Great entry!!
Fine shot Mike ;)
