Great POV to see this Warbler.
The image is nicely composed giving the bird space in font of it though a crop of some of that space would be of benifit IMO.
PS: I did a workshop addressing various aspects of this image.
This is so beautiful. Brilliant perch and well captured details and plumage. The distance blurry background made this subject stands out well to expose its beauty.
