A nice array of Goldfinches, Wayne. Good job getting three in focus at once. For my taste, the holly leaves in the bottom don’t add to the image. I think you could crop from the bottom to just above the leftmost berry and clone over its stem and anything left of the greenery to get a tighter composition.

Nice to get these goldfinches in different poses. Good detail. I could see cloning out the two berries on the left and the bit of green sticking up in the middle, but I like the rest-has a seasonal feel to it.

I agree that it is a good job getting three birds in focus and different poses. I don’t mind the red berries but would remove the two little leaves pocking up in the middle. The holly leaves and berries do seem in season. I also like the very complimentary bg.

Repost without holly leaves.

Nice job on the repost, Wayne.
