This is an amazingly sharp photograph, detailing exactly the colors, texture and patterns of the plummage of this alert looking Brambling. Well done!

This Brambling is beautiful. I doubt if I would be able to pick it out in a flock of Chaffinches. Amazingly sharp details and excellent colors. Pose, setting, background and composition are all wonderful.

what a good photo of the bird you have made. First of all I appreciate the attitude of the bird. You can feel the bird being attentive but not frightened. the light falling on the bird is very nice showing well the colors and pattern of the plumage. Blurry background fits well with the main subject and enhaces it's sharpness.
Thank you for sharing,

Though Bramblings breed in Finland I have never even seen one properly. Very good capture with good pose and composition, good eye contact with catch light, sharp detailsand nicely blurred BG.

Beautiful image, superb composition, lighting, colour and detail, excellent hand-holding.
They do look a little like the Chaffinch.

At our children s school we had a photographer who came every year to record fo mom and dads...and we bought into it even though I was a picture taker kind of guy...but you could have fit that genre..Your images are always so much ....hmm..trying to find the right words...but they fit into the same mode..not in a bad way but in a good way...always same exposures and such...this is how we learn to prefect certain arenas yes?

Very nice colours and great DOF in this picture. I like also pose of this Brambling. I like also effect of blurred BG which makes nice contrast with main object of this image.
Best greetings from Poland,

Again a very nice shot from you!
I really like the beautiful natural light you've got here on this lady and the very nice shallow DOF you've used, to get that uniform and blurry BG.
The details are good and the colors are lovely.
I know how those hides can be...i've been to one of those with you :) It's indeed not the most comfortable place to shoot from especially when crowded, so credits to you for coming back with such a nice shot.
Bravo and TFS
