    Nice warm tones compared with your previous post. Good composition and exposure. Those woolly legs tend to disappear into the BG, so maybe could be darkened a little.

    Love the wide crop, habitat, and OOF bird behind. It is really creative and memorable frame. Temperature is better than on the previous.

    Personal pet peeve: I cannot stand the bird looking at/into the watermark/signature which is why I always place it on the short side of the frame.

    Much better than the first one but I still find the main bird a bit bright.
    What I really like is the juxtaposition of the primary subject and the OOF rear bird. It works really well. This is very hard to pull off and you nailed it.
    This is an image , where the more I look at it, the more I like it.

    I like it too! I admit I like the tree (OK, weed) on the previous frame, but here you have a cleaner composition due to its absence. The oof birds is shaped and coloured just enough to recognize

    Like the first image more. You know the expression "less is more"?? That is what I'll like in that first one. There are so many images in with the birds fills in the whole frame. In that perspective, the first one offers a clearly different view.
