Female Northern Cardinal
I like this beautiful bird and you got her well. The circumstances were hard I guess. Nevertheless a great shot. You sharpened it a bit to much I think. But that's my personal view. I like it more a bit soft focus.

looks like you been down to Hendry's sanctuary?
Excellent composition, the pose is absolutely beautiful. Superb sharp details and the colors of the cardinal stand out on this grey back ground.

Splendida immagine, ottimi POV e composizione, eccellenti i dettagli del piumaggio, molto belli i colori e l'atmosfera. Complimenti. Ciao Maurizio
In Quebec, we are living this major snow storm right now! We don't see anything at three feet in front us; this is the never ending winter :) This is a beautiful composition with this elegant and lovely lady. IMHO, it looks a little too sharpened as it created some noise but the picture remains beautiful. Thanks,

Lovely capture of the female Cardinal in the snowstorm. I like her pose and the lovely colours. Great focus too and a fine soft background. A beautiful composition too.
Many thanks, Ulla

Great to see this female with the snow falling, very effective. Maybe she knew what was comng and was looking for somewhere to shelter, I'm sure many birds perish during such events.
Excellent composition, great exposure and excellent sharpness. Good POV and background too.

This is beautiful Josh. I love the pose and the composition with the thorny twigs and berries, and of course the falling snow. The head does look a little over sharpened on my monitor too. I touch of very low opacity blur tool on just the over sharpened areas would fix that. I wouldn't touch the nice sharp eye or beak or edges though.
