    DOF is tough, I am really close, almost at minimum focus length to get these.

    You got the angle perfect to get that gorget. Sharpness is almost there - 2X probably had something to do with that though. Birds breast also has an unnatural pinkish cast. I don not know if that results from pumping up the levels
    or from natural reflection of the red perch.

    Looks like you saved the best for last!
    I agree with Dorian re: the pinks in the whites of the breast.
    Love the snow and the gorget. I like the curve of the perch- would gave loved to see it in focus throughout it's length( that is a very minor issue) ,

    This one is indeed the best of the series! Lovely colors on the gorget, great pose and good looking perch. The ice on the perch adds a lot, especially good-looking to the right.
    I would have liked to see the perch in focus but that might have compromised the BG. Dito the pink hue in the whites.

    I like the gorget but would like to see a bit more detail in the crown. Try reducing the LUMINANCE in REDs and PURPLEs.
