Beautiful colors. Not quite sharp, I think, as the focus seems to be on the legs, or possibly a crop of a small area of the original picture.

You captured this perfectly. Beautiful colors, sharp, and illustrative in one picture of different wings positions during flight.

Good view of this nuthatch in what I am sure is a typical pose, since our are always upside down in the trees as well. You could resubmit cropping a bit more closely to the bird so we see it better, however.

Great coloring, but not quite sharp, perhaps because it is a severe crop from a much larger photograph or the lens focused a little to much in front - e.g., the branch just in front of the leg looks sharpest.

Spot on focus and definition in this sparrow-lark's head and white feathers - as usual, little birds are hard to capture with equal definition throughout with such a long focus lens so the lower chest is a but blurry. is that a monkey behind? it

Hi Srikumar: You did a good job showing us this bird photographed in very difficult light. Perhaps you need to lighten it a bit in post processing for more natural lighting effect.

This strange background leaves me wondering where this swan is and what it is trying to do!! Excellent use of shallow close-up against a background that provides context to the picture.

Another excellent use of a white background to focus on the coloring of this beautiful bird. Excelent focus and sharpness of detail.

You did a good job on removing presumably distracting background on this warthog picture. The detail in the animals remains excellent.

That little berry this huge bird is holding gives an excellent sense of the size of this bird. Colors are quite good given the mix of shade from the tree and the back light from the gap between the branches - well done.

Lovely clear shot of this insect. I'm curious about the red areas on the sides - do they have some special purpose?
