8 - Very nice, good coloring and background. Nice composition. Criticism; lost me on the title but matters not, just 'even sharper' and even 'more pop', make this 'even better' (obviously), but camera/lens dependent as well as opportunity. Maybe a fraction more space above the head, depending what you had to work with, of course, but not sure, 'works' well as is. Up to 8 from 7.

Nice shot. Lovely colouring.

Just lovely. I love the luminescence of the bird and the background. You've taken an ordinary bird and made her look extraordinary. I give it a 10.
