I like very much this composition, the cute subject, the frame and the instructive note.
Hoping to emphasize a little the details of the beautiful plumage, I attempted a quick workshop. I hope you don't mind.

Hi Helene, this is a good composition of this Pine Siskin. You have him well positioned on that branch and you have utilized excellent depth of field to isolate him from his background. The colour and detail on the bird are very good. Very nice eye.

What a little cutie! Love the pose. Nice OOF BG to compliment the image. It looks a little dull on my monitor looks like it needs some contrast. TFS.

Hi, a good simple image with good complimenting colors. I would prefer more DOP so that more of the bird could be in focus. is that a worm-like thing at its side on the branch!?

Another slpendid capture from you!
This Pine Siskins looks wonderful here and i really love the composition that you managed to make here.
The DOF chosen here by you is really terrific and the natural colors look wonderful and well saturated.
The details are a very bit soft, but that really doesn't affect this beautiful shot.
Bravo and TFS

This is a great presentation of a beautifully captured Pine Siskin! The excellent technical and artistic value of this shot is obvious from the very first glance.
It's useless to speak about the flawless composition and how good this bird looks on a plain, natural background. At the beginning I was tempted to say that I would have avoided the branch to exit the frame exactly through one corner but then I realized that I wasn't able to find a better framing. Very well done!
The colors are natural and good looking. In this regard I appreciate how the light gray color is present throughout the picture (including the background) creating a harmonious unity.
The sharp details in the plumage and the beautiful light in the bird's face are just a few of the strengths of this picture. A very good idea to wait for the bird to turn its face to one side so you can capture the silhouette of the beak against the background. If the subject was facing the camera the results wouldn't have been this good.
I also find the frame very appropriate for this picture. It doesn't compete with the subject for attention. A wonderful work with great and useful notes! Thanks!
With Friendly Regards,

A superb shot on this Pine Siskin. I really like your composition and framing on the shot. Soft light and a spot on exposure. Colors and detail look great. The long lens did a great job on the seperation and isolation from the nice OOF backround. Very well done!
