crop out leave in foreground, it adds nothing, softer light on chain link..then it is great shot!

Nice bird, good detail. Not that you could have done anything about it, but I wish the fence were old and rusty to contrast the soft, clean colors of the bird.

Nice image, it seems slightly over exposed and there seems to be quite a bit of pixelating. Nice capture of the moment.

7 - Good catch and perspective/angle. Criticism; a little grainy especially on the right/background, which slightly detracts from the 'delicacy' of the bird, but then the chain-link fence balances that out in an unusual way. That fence is slightly dominant (and seems some 'blown' issues in it too), so perhaps a different cropping, not sure, may have helped this be an even better shot in my opinion. Maybe even the leaf at the fore completely out too, even though it means you would get "why did you crop the tail", but I think it would help make the bird 'pop' even more if you did. edit:typo
