Hi Sergey
What else can I say but perfect. Great sharpness with perfect DOF and beautifull BG with lovely compo, and even great catchlight and eye-contact!
Simply Great

Hi Sergey,
the Goldfinch is a beautiful bird and you have captured is
very nice, Lovely colours, fine light, nice POV and composition.
The sharness is good but if I shall be nitpicking the DOF is
a bit shallow both the beak and the tail could be a bit sharper, you had room for smaller aperture since you used 1/800 sec but nevertheless it's a lovely picture.
Well done.

hi sergey,
excellent shot, the sharpness is top notch, you have managed to capture such a wonderful pose, lovely colours, well composed shot, this one goes as my favourite shot,
well done,

You captured this passerine at its best Sergey, the DOF is absolutely choice with positive light flowing over your subject. Nicely done. :)
