    The dissected pine cone on the left led me to a seemingly obvious crop with several advantages ...

    Nice shot Will, lovely colours but I feel a little bright - slightly washed out, I think it needs a little more depth in the tones.

    Will, always enjoy your Blue tit shots. And that world famous perch too :-)

    Don't love nor hate the specs at the top, but definitely a bit interesting.

    It's always nice when you can preserve buds, flowers, cones, etc on perches and that would have been great here too, however I see your choice based on the subject.

    The colors are nice. I do think you have some room to give it some tonal punch. But overall very nice to view!

    Hi Will ... another lovely frame .
    Like the " head up pose " of the Tit .
    OP works for me , for the most part .
    Personally I would add a bit more Oomph to the subject and perch ,plus I would change the WB a touch warmer .

    TFS Andreas

    Yes to more "punch" (add contrast or deepen the blacks), and yes to the exclusion of the pine cone at left. Great perch otherwise, and the cute pose by the subject is, well, cute!
