    Beautiful shot! (Did you open your window?) I love the way the background bokeh harmonises with the bird's colouring. I wish we had colourful little fiches like this instead of (or as well as) our sparrows that they resemble. I think the composition may have been improved with a bit cropped off the top. In my faves.

    Superb shot. The muted colours in the background really echo the colour of the plumage. Great detail and composition.

    Nice capture - like the color and detail. Consider cloning/cropping out the dark shape upper left.

    Nice sharp bird shot, with a lot of character in that face.

    Amazing sharpness for shooting through glass... you must keep your windows really clean!
Love the colours here; echoes between the background and the bird's colouring.
Had you considered trying to clone out the grey object on the upper left edge?
Hope you're back outside shooting now...

    Great shot. To make it perfect, I'd clone out the object in the upper left, as it's a tiny bit distracting.

    Stunning. Wonderful use of depth of field and great natural setting and framing. At first I liked the branch on the upper left though some may not since it does help frame the subject but after more thought think you need to clone it out as it pulls attention away from the subject. You can't crop much tighter without risking the overall excellent framing you have here. It is wise not to crowd a bird in the frame. A sharp eye and beak tip are essential with birds and you have that double here and most importantly the all important light reflection in the eye. Just a great shot for a small bird which is very hard to do well. I think my top pick. I also think I know whose this is and I am impressed with how pro your shots are.

    Great shot through the glass. IMHO, one could crop the left of the image to remove the upper left whatever, as it is somewhat distracting.

    Very lovely natural rendition. Shooting birds through the window isn't ideal, but it's hard to get shots like this when you're outside because they fly away. The framing would be better with the bird to to right side since it is looking to the left. I would not criticize cleaning up the left side to get ride of the branches there.
