    Default American Goldfinch In Crabapple.

    American Goldfinches are not often thought of as berry eaters, or a species associated with these types of trees, but a group of them were doing just that a couple of weeks ago. This one just perched there for the longest time - at least a full minute, making it possible for me to move a bit to align with a great orange-leaved autumn tree BG.

    Canon 7DII + 500mm f/4 II + 1.4TC III, manual exposure, evaluative metering, 1/1600s., f/5.6, ISO 1600, natural light, handheld, about 80% FF, NR to the BG.

    Beautiful Fall colors surrounding this AMGO, Daniel. Nice detail and of course the outstanding perch. Like the crop.

    Oh yeah, lovely Daniel.

    Well-lit yellow subject on that rich orange/gradient bkg works beautifully.

    Like the comp too. Might have taken a moment to clone out the open/hanging crabapple on the right side and a couple of the stray apple-less stems, but a minor nit.

    Very nice Dan, the habitat colours work very well, juxtapose to the colours of the subject, quite striking in many ways. I just wonder about the OOF berry over the branch and cloning one in with a tad more detail so it recedes back into the rest?

    Nice clean fall colors. nice composition. I wouldn't have thought too much about the OOF beery but now that Steve mentioned it....I can't unsee it.

    I like the setting, composition, IQ and sharpness. I found my eye drawn to the OOF berry too but its still a beauty as is.

    I like this as posted Daniel. Honestly my eye was drawn right to the bird and not the berry. The bird really pops against that beautiful BG. Nice work!
