The pose is great, I like the composition also, but sharpness must be increased and noise must be decreased. However, an image with potential.
Have a great and prosperous new year, best regards, László
Beautiful close-up photo of this cute bird,
excellent details of its plumage, I don't no
what was the light conditions but I see in
your exifs ISO1600, I think it is too much,
the POV and the way you framed are very fine
and with a beautiful eye-contact, TFS

What a pretty little bird you have captured in this photo. I must admit I'm not familiar with it at all, but your image shows it off very well. I love the unique colors in it's plumage and it's bold white eye ring. Great work!!
