Lovely image Mary, soft, dreamy, artistic. Brings to my mind the silence of a snowfall, when even the birds get quiet.
Nice job on composition and I like how the Goldfinch seems to be eyeing the viewer.
I'd like to know which filters you used and how to use them. That's something I know little about. #7135300
