#1 image is superb, Shaun
Sharp detail, well exposed giving good colour depth and set against a background which helps the bird stand out so well.

V1 is a pin sharp, beautiful Goldfinch portrait but V2 is extra, extra special.

Love the comp of V1. A catch light in the eye suggests slight flash, but data says did not fire, how did you get this, cos I love it so much.

Two fine shots,V 1 possibly the better compositionally and for exhibition purposes, but I love the 'pose' in V 2, Shaun.

Glorious colours and pin sharp detail in both. I really like v2 where the poor little fella is all fluffed up and braving the cold
