Really beautiful image....background colours are perfect for the subject which is nice and crisp and in such a characteristic pose....can only be a 10!

Lovely capture. The focusing and composition is excellent and the dark backrground really make the detail in the feathers stand out. It's a shame it's looking the other way, you'll have to work on your bird imitations to get it's attention to turn around:)
High marks from me.

Well... I tried to get it's attention but I only spoked the birdie off... and it flew away. I didn't even got a chance for a second shot. Guess that means that I'll definitely have to work on my approach. LOL Thanks for your comments! :D

You can see the cold in the way he's fluffed up for warmth. That's a nice camera and all but I think it's more about what the user composes, and this is lovely and full of interest.

Excellent shot. You caught the bird just right. Just about every bird I see is shot head on on full side view. This is different but still good. Love the details in those feathers.

Wonderful shot of a lovely sparrow. The browns work well with the bird. The texture of the feathers is something you can almost feel. Stunning job!

He's so chubby and cute! What an absolutely beautiful capture. The boughs behind him make a perfect background and bring out his lovely brown coloring. Bravo!
