Hi Peter.
Wonderful photo, absolutly spot on, colour, focus, DOF all great.
I actually have a pair of Chaffinch around my back garden. When I put grain bread out on the post it's not long before they arrive.
The female is a little more elusive and shy but the male comes and goes quite happily.

Focus is spot on and composition very good. Very nice soft bg colors. Details in the feathers of the bird and clarity are wonderful. Best regards, Harry

WOW ! Peter , very crisp and well composed shot , colors perfect , TFS and good luck.

Just about spot on, no nits to pick. Well done.

Hi Peter,
Looks a bit like an old English painting; through the old varnish it has become a bit yellowish but still it has all its glance and glory; and besides the subject is a very adorable one.
Branching and posing matters concerning the former are 'wow'.
