Greetings from the Critique Club!

What a nice shot! Good clarity on the bird, nice framing overall and the way the bill of the bird works with the leaves on the branch is very interesting!

The color seems a bit flat, almost like there is some back lighting on the bird but not quite there. As a result the gray on the bird comes out really flat looking and the detail on the feathers seems just a tad soft in some areas.

The branches and leaves on the top and side are very well placed for the shot but the one shadow or leaf on the bottom in front of the rock is a bit distracting to me. I know these are little things but honestly that is all I have to work with, little things but all the major things are there already! A wonderful shot overall!

Nice light and composition. I also like the blur on the leaves, making them look feathery. I wish the branch was the main focus of the shot, though.

Beautiful nature shot, top marks in an appropriate challenge, I think you'll not do well in this one as the branch connection is really just a bit obscure

Great bird shot, but the challenge is the branch not the bird

Very nice. I especially appreciate the crispness of the foreground vs. the faded background. :-)
Oh, and I love birds. :-)

Great clear shot of this bird. He seems to be in mid-step. Great aperature control.

Good grief! Could that bird be any crisper (outside of a frying pan that is)? ;-) j/k

Fantastic focus and DOF. Beautiful rich tones too (although the rock surface is almost too bright). Great composition - outstanding entry.

Fine bird pic, pushing it on the topic though.
