Stunning! Almost thought this was a real photo at first. In fact I still can't tell the difference. The detail is just mind boggling. :)

Wow It took a while to realize it wasn't an actual photo, the focus really made it look realistic I hadn't realized until I looked at the moss on the branch. Great work!

the branch looks really drawn out, but the bird (especially the head) looks extremely great.
The branch needs a bit more shadows to simulate 3D I think.

Keep going - your birds look amazing :thumbsup:

pretty good colors mate, i really like the that you've blurred the background as to make the bird pop out, those feathers are really well rendered by the way... keep it up !
