    Man is it nice to have some warblers back in town. Basically full frame. Removed a couple OOF branches.
    Very little sharpening applied with DeNoise. Straight size reduction. Audio employed. Taken yesterday.

    Good shot but I feel it is oversharpened and a little too much contrast, the image appears "heavy" to me.

    Such a beautiful little bird! I think Jonathan nailed it with his comments. Bird looks crunchy and heavy for the reasons he stated. He's also a bit tight in the frame, so I'd give him a bit of breathing room.

    Jack, also in agreement. It feels a bit oversaturated and dense in the detailed areas.

    That said, the bkg is very nice, perch focus is even from L to R and feet are also IF so I think you have a really nice starting point here. Might be worth re-working.

    Agree with the comments. I think this could be revisited.

    Late to the party but revisited the image. Added canvas right and above, fixed the branch mess with a Quick Mask, and reduced the contrast with a reverse S curve. Was too dense but not any more.

    ps: sharp image but not a fan of the hunched over posture.
