Jeff, Nice details. For me, the background is a bit busy and the Cardinal is a little big in the frame.

A nice male cardinal with decent detail, Jeff. If you have it, a little more room for the cardinal on the sides would be nice. :)

Thanks Gene and Ron. I tried uploading a 1280 x 853 but it gets rejected saying 800 x 800 is maximum size allowed. Yes, photo looks crowded, but that's best I could get at 800 x 800.

Jeff,  Not sure what you mean?  I crop the image to the size that I want/can and then place the dimensions that NatureScapes allows and the image is accepted.  A bigger crop generally means less detail, but other than that the image is accepted.  Maybe someone with a lot more computer knowledge than me can comment.

 Gene, I just realized what i did wrong. When I cropped, I had checked "square" to get the 800 x 800 sized square photo. I should have left the photo in the rectangular shape, then chose 800 on the long side which would have given me a crop of 800 x 533 sized photo which would have looked better.
