    I love those cardinals - they always look so sharp. Artie is right, an all green background would be exceptional. A content aware crop is surely justified here ?

    Hi Joe looks good overall .
    The subject itself does look ... not that happy or excited .
    Color and Tones are looking very good , I am more than ok with the duo color BG .

    The head on view is nice. Good thinking on the vertical framing. Nice background as well.
