A this is a stunner - made a cut above by the diagonal composition of the blossom - excellent.

Would be better without the text though.

Another stunning image, Superb composition, I love the framing blossom, Great colour and detail.

Hey Dad, i reslly like this, lovely capture and i like the natural blossom frame. I do feel, however, that the Goldfinch text is alittle of the large size as slightly detracts from the overall impact of the image. Sorry, nice presentation though, would have liked it a tad smaller. Fab capture, Melissa xxx Smile

A beautiful shot Shaun, lovely detail/pose and the perch is wonderful, one of your best so far I would say, I do agree the text would look better smaller and in the frame rather than on the image though, not a criticism, merely a personal preference.
