Nice photo of this bird in good sharpness and natural colours. Excellent DOF and a good composition and POV.
I particularly like the light on this bird, and this has caused a very attractive catch light in the birds eye.
You don't say what type of camera you have used but I think that you could have improved the shot if you were able to either select an off centre focusing point, or to have focused on the birds eye, and then recomposed the shot. I say this because it seems that your camera has selected a focus point on the head of the upper right-hand seed head which has meant that the depth of field at F8 as not been quite enough to keep the bird in sharp focus. This is a problem I often have when trying to make pleasing images of birds because I lock my autofocus to the central point so that when I am trying to photograph moving birds. The autofocus is quicker and more accurate but it means that if I photograph bird which is slightly off centre I have to be careful to try and get the focus right.
The exposure on the bird and the colours are just about spot-on. It's just a shame that the focusing point is locked on the seat head rather than the bird itself. Thanks for sharing - best wishes - Phil

Nicely composed shot of this little Goldfinch, showing beautiful natural colors. The only drawback I see is that your cameras system seems to have focused more on the seed pod leaving the bird a tad bit fuzzy. Nice work!!

a very nice composition with beautiful colours. It disturbs me that the focus is not put on the bird but on the flower.

La profondeur de champ n'est pas excellente mais le sujet est tout de même relativement bien valorisé.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
