Wow!! What a beautiful bird!! The US goldfinch is so totally different. I have a shot of it and it is all yellow during the summer. Wonder if yours changes colour for the summer too.

Looks like it was worth the while to sit in the hide. Whites on the bird nicely done, the branch is a little OEed. I would have cropped a little differently so that the bird has space to look into.

TFS!

This is a very challenging shot to get ... looks like you used panning to get it. Focus seems a little soft on the bird, but this is a veru difficult shot, so its okay. Like the wing blur on the tips, this along with the blurred BG def suggests motion. Good focus on the eye.

Interesting self critique :)
Agree with you that the BG could be better.
The snow or rain makes it look interesting. Interesting posture on the bird. Yes, parts are OOF, but the overall shot is interesting enough. Like the feather detail on the belly and the saturation on the rump is good.

Warm welcome to TN!! Lovely first post. LOVE the goldfinch on the sunflower. Do sunflowers bloom in CT in Jan? I thought it would be too cold.
I would have liked more space for the bird to look into. I would have cropped with less of the stalk and more space on the right. The stalk has light spots on it which are distracting. I like the feather detail and the saturation.

Good job!

Like the subject and the saturation. You have lost detail on the feathers, this could be from overusing Neat Image or other noise removal software as your focus seems to be spot on the bird and at DOF 7.2, you should have the entire bird sharp.
I like the composition of the branch curving.
I agree with Mariki that you need more space in front of the bird.

Beautiful shot of a awesome bird!!

Only critique is that the BG is distracting. I would select the BG and blur with a Gaussian Blur. Might post a workshop if I feel patient enough to try it.
