I love the deep contrasts here. I think turning the photo blue was a good choice - it's a cold color, and reinforces the fact that it's winter; as seen by the snow on the branch. The only thing I don't really like is the grain. Otherwise; lovely shot!

Greetings from the Critique Club.

First let me thank you for YOUR critique of my image, a couple of challenges ago.

This is a lovely little shot. There is nice detail and it is well composed.

I would wish for a bit more detail on the eye though, is this a product of the post processing? That is the only thing I see that is detrimental. If we could see it better I feel this shot would have done much better.

Looks underexposed and like the white balance is wrong...

Like the little bird, the little mounds of snow, the overall blue tone.

I'm not really sure where the interesting point of view comes into this, but the colour makes it a very good shot anyway

A little noisy. I like the blue cast. Not very original in the POV department, though.

That little guy looks cold. A bit more light on the bird to make him stand out more.

your little chickadee is cute, but i'm not seeing how the point of view makes this any more interesting. the background looks a bit grainy, and the dark bottom left corner is a bit of a distraction to the bird. I like the blue tint over the image. There is the strong impression of coldness in this shot, and that is good. I like strong impressions. Focus and clarity are good...just not really seeing an interesting point of view. not the kind I have pictured in my own head anyway. still a nice image though. ~Heather~

Effective use of monotone.

Nice DOF but I think it's a bit dark and too much noise. Not sure how much this meets the challenge theme. Even with the noise I like this image.

much as I've tried to see it, I don't feel that this is a unique or interesting point of view. It's a nice photo of a bird, though awfully blue and grainy. Sorry, doesn't do it for me. 3.

A classic bird shot - the white balance seems off (the white is too blue), but tha'ts just it... it's a bit too "classic." The POV doesn't seem to add to the picture.

Very convincing winter color tones, The blues and whites bring through the feeling of coldness. The graininess helps a little but I think there is slightly too much in your image. I wish I could see the eye, or at least a glint or something to tell me there is actually an eye there instead of a empty black area. As for the point of view aspect, well there isn't anything unusual or different in the perspective you have chosen. (7)
