auto contrast, noiseware, resize, usm, sharpen, save for web. Haven't entered in quite awhile and I'm clueless as to how this will score. A unique capture, but not wow. My guess is 5.5...if I'm lucky. My hope is a 6.0 or better.

Great competition in this challenge. Way to go everyone.
oops, It appears that I forgot to sharpen after resizing. :(

Thank you so much for the comments and 2 favorites during voting. :)

Hey. That's pretty cool, getting a shot with them all together like that. We have the same mix around here, but they're usually pretty well spread out in the main (birdfeeder) tree and surrounding bushes.

Hope you didn't get your camera wet! :P

What a stunning composition and snow capture. If only the cardinal were just a tad more in focus...7.

Nice composition. Those poor birds look cold.

A lot of people are probably going to wish this was sharper, but I like the kinetic feel of the shot. I can practically feel the snow swirling around me.

You may not have got perfect focus, but you did get a very nice composition with the different birds all on the branch. I like it.

Very nice! A tad sharper would have been nice but it's not a killer....."Soft Focus"!!!!!

I love the contrast of the red bird to the others. The snowfall helps add atmosphere too.

This is so pretty! It reminds me of a winter greeting card. Great job.

A little out of focus. Granted it is hard to get focus on such tiny subjects when its snowing.
