I think he is enjoying the seed he is in the process of eating. I'm not sure if soft focus works well for songbird photographs but if I am going to do it I'll use an image like this that already had warm evening light on it.

basically I'm just wanting a 6+ on this one.

Post-processing: Just a bit of levels for contrast. A cooling photo filter. And gaussion blur faded to about 50%.

Nice catch. The softness works well - as does the centered composition - looks like he/she/he is posing. 8

Great capture, but I'm not sure that softness adds anything.

Can nicely apply the rule of thirds here. The more I look at this the more I like it.

Nice straightforward capture. Great color tones. I am not digging the border but I wont let that affect my vote.

Beautifully lit and has that nice, soft glow I expect to see from soft focus.
