    That is one dramatic perch for the sparrow! Sharp, well exposed.

    The oof vegetation on the left is somewhat distracting. Perhaps you could soften it a bit more, esp. the part closest to the bird. The image is well worth a bit of tinkering if you wanted to.\!

    Great perch, pose, and processing, but the OOF bit behind is rough. There's also a lot of room above the bird, but I think you probably wanted to included the whole OOF bit as cutting it off would be wors

    The sparrow and the perch (flower?) are great, but ... If you could have taken a small step to your left you could have separated the bird from the o-o-f stuff ... Lots could be done after that. Or not.

    I should have asked -- was this at a set-up? Was audio used?
