Hi Hernan.
What an attractive colours palette and subject of the picture. Swett bird among the twigs looks greatly. I like superb sharpness and details of the main subject. TFS and kind wishes.

Hi Anna.
It is really a pleasure to watch this scene and so high quality image. Amazing POV, cropping of the scene, superb colours and details. I also like combination of sunlight across the almost whole scene and piece of shadows at the BG. Great job and my compliments.

Hi Ron.
Shapes and colouration as well as pose of the bird are really very cute. I am impressed with reproduction of every colur tone and every feather of the bird. Twig with attractive leaves and buds is also sweet point of the image. BG is simply amazing too. Well done and warm regards.

Hi Niek.
The result of your efforts is stunning. Photo looks like art work. Tcloude sky is very impressive as well as shadowed rocks, piece land with vegetation and nicely blurred and coloured waves. Well done and TFS.

Hi Seyfi.
What a beautiful butterfly you managed to capture. Simply amazing wingspread and impressive upper POV. I am amazed with refined exposure and reproduction of colouration of the insect as well as the reproduction of all other charming features of the species. Well done and TFS.
Alexei.
P.S. How do you reconcile with the need to reduce the size of the shot from 36 MP to 800x800 pixels. I think about D810.

Hi Jose.
Excellent in-flight picture of a cute moth/ We have the same species of the insect and flower and such subject is very attractive for shooting but is difficult for getting nice result. You have solved all photo task perfectly. Pictured moment, exposure parameters, details vs blurriness (of the BG) as well as colours create a very harmonic composition. My compliments and best regards.

Hi Brenda.
What a cute bird at an impressive magnification you managed to picture. I welcome a very nice framing and composition as well as DOF and details of the bird. Level of contrast of the image is low a bit as it is seems to me but it is not a point. Warm regards and TFS.

Hi Roberto.
I think the better POV and butterfly pose are absent. Great wingspread, superb isolation of the butterfly from natural BG, impressive combination of smoothness of the BG and tack sharp details of the main subject. TFS and kind regards.

Hi dear Gert.
I do not imagine TN without you, your pictures (oh, where are your hundreds masterpieces?), informative notes, useful advices and kind comments. Even your very seldom visits here last years have strong impact on us. It is clear TN now is not the same as TN then. However, I wish you health improvements, many new shots and posts here.

As all your other pictures this one is wonderful. Silk-looking BG underlines the shapes and details of the cute skipper perfectly. I like impressive diagonal composition and natural pleasant colours of the image. Warm regards and all the best.
Yours Alexei.

Hello Srikumar,
it's a nice picture of the red-billed Hornbill.
I agree with Peter about the light but what do? not much.
Decent sharpness and a nice DOF.
Well done.

Hallo Jose,
you have captured this dragonfly in a very nice way.
It's sharp wirt a fine DOF almost the entire insect is in good focus and the BG is nicely blurred.
I like the nice soft colours.
Well done.
