Hi there! There are so many things I like about this photo.

Composition wise, I really love the way the black bird seems to be looking at the camera and how the colour of its feather seems to contrast with the colour of the white divider. Apart from the black and white of the birds, divider and leaves, the apples provide a nice distraction. The fact that the snow is falling makes the photo look even more beautiful. Snowfall looks beautiful and adds a sort of magical touch to any scenery. The presence of the second bird provides for an interesting mirror effect.

Technique wise, the photo is clear and sharp. The title of the photo seems appropriate given that someone gave the apples to the birds to eat. The watermark does not distract the viewer while doing its intended job.

Overall, good job. :)

Everything looks crisp (or appropriately out of focus), the birds look plump and very happy to be enjoying fresh apples. I didn't think anybody did this type of thing (the apple post) anymore. It brings back some happy memories, so thank you for that.

I like how you did your signature, it is out of the way and soft like the snow. I also like how the little stems sort of point at it in an almost animated "check this out" manner. The angle of the words/placement, and fence post keeps the viewers eyes from leaving the image once they're done reading the sig. Fantastic.

I notice there's an Orton effect going on here. It's a touch distracting to see the double lines (I'm near-sighted), but it also gives a nice dreamy quality. However, I can't help but think how this would look with a gentle Gaussian blur outside the focus, with it increasing as it nears the picture's edges.

Overall, I was surprised you weren't getting many comments on this piece. Until I saw you only uploaded last week! This is something I'd definitely consider putting up for prints, or contacting some card companies... :)
