    I cropped this shot down a bit, I kinda like the way the natural branches are lit up by the late sun, sorta framing the backlit finch. But the more I look at it, i'm wondering if I should have went a little tighter (to eliminate the distraction of the branches) or wider (to accentuate the natural setting even more). What say you good folks? :)

    i see this crop is perfect,and i don't see the branches are distracting, they are blending in the photo, but you should ask a pro wildlife photographer :)

    i like it alot you could try selective coloring and black n white the branches, background and just color the bird.

    I like the lighting and the branches, make the photo a lot more interesting than just another bird record photo. Would actually like to see more of them so that the bird is not placed at the centre
