|Greetings from the Critique Club!
Wow, he looks so much like the guy I called Big Red, who lived around my house some 5 years ago...now he looked like he could rip your finger off, and not mind doing so :-)
Nice shot of the cardinal but whatever that big white thing (feeder?) he is perched on just fights him for all the attention. Red, white and black are the three colours that extras in films and movies are told to avoid bringing to set (unless specifically told to do so or as outfitted by Wardrobe) as they are all colours that grab the eye. Here you have two of those colours, in approximately equal doses and on the same side of the shot...you can see where things are going. If you have a dark or neutral coloured object for him to perch on, so his redness pops in the shot, then half the battle is won.
