COngratulations on high score and placement. You submission has everything to make it a great composition. I tried hard to find anything to comment on (for improvement) bu could not find anything. The only thing which I can think of is bit more of contrast. The expressions of subject are very natural. The DOF is just fine and cropping is perfect (there are many photos with lots of background in this challenge which takes away focus from subject).

There are some more great portraits (of birds :)) in your portfolio. "simply a robin" is "wow"

Have a great day!

Man, I am definitely becoming a Harvey groupie I guess. This is yet another of your images I gave a very high score to. I expected to see this in the top 10. Very fine, understated work, as I have come to expect from you.

Love the pastel colours. Composition and lighting is good. DOF is spot on. The mud is a great added touch.

Wow - wonderful image. Perfect for the challenge - You can see serious emotion in the eyes it seems.
A rare 10 from me :)

Love the low saturation look but this needs more contrast to make it pop more, at least in my opinion. Good shot anyways.
