Hi Steve, Welcome to TN.
This is a beautiful composition. Great POV, color, and DOF isolating the bird from the BG.
I'd appreciate this image larger if the image quality could handle it. TFS


Excellent shot! The finch appears to be sitting on a sunflower throne! The blurred, dull background compliments the colorful flower and bird wonderfully.

thanks for sharing,


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!

Hi Steve and welcome on TN!
This is a very beautiful picture, very sharp and detailed, with natural and vivid colours. I like a lot pose of this bird, together with sunflowers these make a very optimistic composition. On the other hand it is a pitty that the note is very short.
Best greetings from Poland,
