This is a wonderful shot of the bird!. You have framed it well. The light and shadows, colours and the composition have worked out well. Good luck in the contest!

A well composed shot with nicely shown details although it is missing a catchlight in the eye. The colors are fine. Best wishes in the contest.

    Thanks for the comments on
    something I need to pay more attention to;
    the catch-light on the eye.

A nice entry into the competition posted here! Your fine and traditional composition provides us with a good look at your handsome bird and it's location. Exposure and sharpness are OK. Well done and good luck!

This Finch is a really beautiful bird! I really like the purple in the feathers, adds Alot of nice color. The use of light and shadows is also good as it provides a good amount of contrast. Overall a nice eye pleasing photo, good luck!

It is a beautiful bird indeed, I love the colors, this image is well focused, it's clear to view, exposure is well managed, the colors appear natural, when photographing birds, you need to focus on the eye, here the eye is not easily seen, it's in the shadows, the bird is well placed in the frame,leaving room in the direction bird is looking but I feel that just a bit more room above it's head would improve this. I appreciate your effort!
