G'Day Paul,
Excellent sharp capture of a Diamond Finch from a fine POV that displays its colours in a way that suits the festive season.
With that in mind I wish you all the best for Christmas and the New Year.

Hi Paul,
Excellent POV, detail, and pose. I like the diagonal comp as well. I did a WS to try & tweak you great post a little, hope you don't mind.
Merry Christmas!
