#3 is not sharp enough to be good, unfortunately
#2 is a nice crop
#1 suffers a little from the twigs in the face
#4 is a nice subject, but a little too remote (and to high from above) to be "personal". But excellent timing

Hi Stuffy,

Personally I like # 2 & 4 ( 4 quite a lot :) )

I'd have to agree with Thomas though on the 1st and 3rd.
I find it bizarre they are blurry since your shutter speed for both is short enough to avoid blur. Are they a large crop of the originals? This might explain.

#3 looks like bad focus, #1 is good focus on the bird and the out-of-focus effect on the twiggs is good too. But th etwiggs still disturb the view of the bird...
