Nice work, a little to busy IMO. If you could have concentrated on the birds in flight or cropped it to that I think it would have been better. Also use less DOF. 8

Some great expressions, but the very blurry birds detract from the overall effect.

Nice catch. Busy background is a distraction. I think I'd crop out quite a bit top and bottom to focus on the in-flight birds. Right now, it's quite a busy shot without a real focal point.

A great shot. This has such a country, peaceful feel to it. Clarity is good, subjects are focused and happy. :) You must be pleased with this photo.

Yeah baby, bingo... This shot is great. I love the lighting, and love the many subjects in this. The birds at the bottom looking up, the birds flying in, and the birds on the feeder all together almost tell a story here. 9.

CUte. Sometimes the best shots are right in our own backyard. The only thing that's distracting is the lines(?) in the upper right. Maybe selectivly soften that area after to challenge.

I find the pink flowers completely distracting to what could be quite a nice picture

A viewpoint with a less busy background would have rated this far higher.

Ah well frozen. The light is very good there. A pity you didn't get all the birds in focus, especially the one flying in the lower right corner.

A touch over post-processed but has excellant content framing and focus. Color and soft background works well in this image. Terrific job.

Nice feeder action shot. I tried, but my feeder has bad lighting. Great shot.
  Photographer found comment helpful.

Great image! I hope you make this print available. I think the crisp focus on the feeder and the softer focus on the incoming birds helps give a feeling of the frenzy that generally surrounds bird feeders, but still gives it that fresh quality. The light looks great, the only disconcerting thing for me is in the lower left corner it looks like the bird is being impaled by the pole! Hehe, but really, fantastic photo!

Great shot of the sparrows. Nice colors and a good capture of flight. Busy little creatures, aren't they!
