Hi Jason,
you have taken a nice picture of the beautiful bird.
Lovely colours and nice pose.
I find it a bit over-sharpen since there is some halos around the edges. IMO the compo could be improved by given a bit more
space in front o the bird and less behind but it's still a nice picture.
Well done.

Beautiful shot of this Cardinal. He is in a great pose for this POV. Looks like there may have been a stick that is OOF between you and the bird. That happens to me all the time. There is some noise in the BG, but you don't really notice until you start looking for it, probably because the bird is so bold. You could easily fix that in PP if you had the time. Very Nice shot.

hello Jason

you did a beautiful shot of this Northern Cardinal, excellent POV,
for the framing maybe i would give just a little bit less space in
the subject's back and just a little bit more space
in the subject front (where he is looking),

lovely luminosity of your image, excellent sharpness
and details of the plumage and lovely catch-light at the eye, TFS

Hello Jason

I love the colour contrast!The blue sky is beautiful and the vibrant red looks awesome against it.
Excellent POV,the focus is very good with lovely detail.

Hello Jason. This is so stunning. Red color in vivid details of this bird is just stunning against the spotless blue sky. Regards. Jusni
