I love the colours and detail here Dave, great view of the variation in colour on the back :heart_eyes:

Personally, composition wise, I think I’d like a little more room on the right.

I like the composition and the placement of the junco amongst the foliage. Good detail in the junco. The light bit of foliage in the LLC tends to draw the eye.

Hi Dave. I like the junco a lot. I think I’d remove the foliage in the upper left and do something to bring down the super intense greens in the foreground. If you haven’t played with it yet the “point color” tool in LR is excellent for dealing with this kind of issue.


I took your advice. I like it. Thanks!
