At first glance this image looks pretty much spotless and to very much to my liking. The subject, a male Common Redpoll, is very photogenic and offered a cute pose. The perch is the right size with good colours. The background is clean. The composition is well balanced. There is, however, a pretty significant mistake here…one that makes the image fit for the delete bin if you can believe that.
Take a quick peek at the image, and feel free to leave a reply with what you think is wrong with the picture. You can click on the image for a larger, more detailed version if you need the extra resolution to study the image. I will reveal my answer in a day or two. Have fun!
