Nice job getting this character perched up, Allen. I always love those blackberry canes as perches and this one is no exception. Good detail in the Towhee. To my eye, it feels like this could use a touch more canvas on the bottom, but if you don’t already have it, I’m not sure how well the content aware functions would work on this.

Thanks, Dennis. I added an inch to the bottom and used content aware. It works pretty well; the new version (I think) in the 2019 edition of PS is pretty good.

It did better than I expected. You might play with the replicated leaf cluster on the left, but that’s the only oddity I see resulting from it. I do prefer this composition.

Excellent color, detail, perch and background. I think raspberry bushes make a superb perch. No need to sharpen that.
