From one D200 owner to another, this is an excellent capture. I admire your comp here, Cecilia along with the beautifull colors of the finch. The shallow DOP gives it a three dimentional look.

Good title for this one. As usual, your work is splendid. A beautiful detailed image, and Eric is right, it does have a three dimensional effect.
