I'm sure others have already said as much, but a little twist counter-clockwise would help. Otherwise, nice job.

Good capture. Litle tilted (maybe it should be).

hard to see the seed...selective dodging needed maybe??

That's a weird looking bird. Looks like you caught him in the act.

Wow! I mean really....WOW!

6 - Good potential. Good capture. Good bokeh. Criticism; if the seed dispenser were straightened instead of the bird, some more detail in the bird (especially beak/seed/face) and possibly any subtle colors 'brought out more', would have made this better in my opinion. Looks like a very difficult shot to adjust the contrast on.

Fabulous lighting! That little sliver of light on the eye really makes the photo. The out-of-focus background is excellent, but unfortunately it makes the noise very apparent. Noise Ninja/Neatimage would solve that, but you might have to mask out the bird to save the plumage. 8

Had the lighting been on the bird (camera side) this would do a lot better - still a good shot.

Good luck with this avian study.

This is a nice capture, but the birdseed dispenser stands out more than the bird. Unfortunately the birds colors get muted by the shade and further more by the gray background. Cropping more of the seed dispenser may have helped, IMO. I like the action though, with the seed in the beak.

nice capture, I like the slight grain...I think that it adds to the photo.
