I knew this had to do well for you -- it's such an incredible catch!! Everything about it is perfect, including the oof in the lower left, so he's peaking out at us. Huge congrats on the HM!

Ha!

Love the fun!


I don't know about the negative space... seems like a closer crop would serve this image better... but... then it's busy.

I don't know... *sigh* Giving it a 7 for now...

Despite the central composition of the birds face the image is otherwise a wonderful insight into nest building and in its environment too. Crisp clean sharp and great BG. 8.
