Beautiful photo, dof is excellent as is the colours.

This little woodpecker really gets around, doesn't he? Great detail and lighting- a worthy entry. You might burn in the right side a bit (a little too bright) and dodge the eye and face to bring out detail. I'd like to see the bird less centered, too.

Bird's head seems slightly out of focus. Good use of DOF. I also like how you cropped this image. Would make pretty good cover photo.

Great capture. With a bit more space at the top, a bit less at the bottom, I think it would make a nice cover.

I not a big bird photo fan, but I really like this one and can easily see it as a magazine cover. Very nice detail and colors.

Hey! I got one of these guys in my front yard. Nice capture. I don't know how many shots I've taken of mine without even the hint of this quality. Good luck.

Nice capture but perhaps a selective sharpening around the bird's head would help it immensely. Nice background blur. How close were you able to get to this little guy?

Great shot, very appropriate for the magazine you chose, great detail and wonderful sharpness. Lighting is not too harsh and the color of the head is perfect. Great shot. 10

Great cover shot here, the bird can look at text that sells the magazine.
