I like the very organic surroundings, bokeh and look on this beautiful little guy. Nice capture and composition.

The tone, details, and exposure on this are much stronger than your "outtake" ' . substr('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/32345/thumb/449508.jpg', strrpos('//images.dpchallenge.com/images_portfolio/32345/thumb/449508.jpg', '/') + 1) . '. Compositionally, I like the outtake better. Nice work on both of them, and congratulations on a very fine score!

Take care.

I applaud your capture. At 40+ attempts, haven't a clear one yet!

Very nice photograph! The sharpness and lighting are great, but its the perfect choice of DOF that I like. Excellent!

Wonderful bird pic...I know how small chickadees are and you did a great job of not losing any detail. The branch it is on is a perfect "frame" for the little one as well.

Looks like the sticks above are sharper than your bird. This would be better if you used the center focus point on your camera and locked on the bird's eye.

Good portrait of this bird. The out of focus background really works well.

One of the most striking bird photos I've seen on this site, in my humble opinion. My only complaint is the blurred foreground twigs...which I find very distracting. Not sure what could be done about those, though. I offer a 9.

Excellent. Great shot. Love the setting.

I like the framing with the branches. THe white is just a little burned out and the focus is off a tad...would like to see the edges of the bird sharp as well as the foliage.

I really like the combination of earth tones in this photo, and nice composition.

Gorgeous! Could easily be a calendar photo for December.
