Its a lovely soft focus pic, but I see too many bright colors that are distracting my attention from the main subject, should have cropped (IMHO), picture is nice and subject is very good.

Very nice - beautiful natural colors and the bird has good camouflage, the softening works well. Looks like a quality image, so the detail lost at this size is likely there 'wall sized'.

A little less of the soft affect. Good choice for composition - the colors help keep some "pop" in the photo.

At first I was a bit disturbed by the oversaturation, but it does add contrast - nice shot!

This is just shallow depth of field not soft focus.

Great colors. Maybe a bit too heavy on the blur but a cool shot none the less.

great image
the surrounding area certainly helps increase the importance of the subject
