Hi Brenda,
Beautiful first plane of the always wonderful hummingbirds.
You've got nice light and pose on your subject.
The dark and smooth background works great to stand out the feather's colours.
The only nit would be the slightly overexposed whites, on which we loose some details there.
Well done and thanks for share it.
Best regards,
JM

Hi Neels,
No, I haven't heard ;-)
I liked a lot the scene you got here, certainly it seems a moment of confidence between those doves.
You've managed to build a nice composition with the branches and leafs at the down-right part of the frame.
I just had a look at the workshop, and found on it still plenty of details that would be great to keep. Not sure if the hot pixels there were because of too much sharpening, but something in between will just work fine.
Well done and thanks for share it.
Best regards,
JM

Hello MF!
It's been long time since my last time around...
Light here is so special, it invites you to discover every single part of the image, which is totally enjoyable.
Not sure other seasons of the year, but in this one the scene is so vivid and plenty of hues.
So well captured and even better seen.
Thanks for share it, will try to catch up with your latest uploads on your site as well.
Cheers,
JM

Excellent moment the one you've caught here.
Is not only the scene, but the details on the usually unseen tongue of the Goose, and the way he stretches the neck to send the warning.

Wonderful capture of this r-w blackbird.
It's so good the pose caught that matches the direction of the stem along the diagonal.

Hola Jesús,
Que buena foto!
Lograste acercarte muchísimo al colibrí, que maravilla.
Este es una de esas fotos que uno espera llegar rápido al pc para bajarla y mirarla.
De paso muy buena la pose en que lo agarraste, con la cabeza semi ladeda que nos deja apreciar con todo detalle su ojo y pico.
Le habrás llegado a tomar alguna en vuelo?
Excelente foto y gracias por compartirla.
Un gran saludo amigo,
JM

Hi George,
I'm really delighted seeing this fantastic photo.
Sharpness is just amazing, and what to say about the intensity of those blue and green feathers, dazzling.
You had a great light and took good advantage of it on the head and the catchlight.
Just one thing to mention and is those scattered hot pixels, product of sharpening or contrasting, but that can be deleted with post production.
My compliments and thanks for share it.
Best regards,

Hi Horia,
This is simple fantastic!
No more else to say, just when everything in a pic seduces your eye and mind.
Love so much the radial beams of light on the snow and the texture it reveals thanks to that smooth irregular shadows.
So good you stopped by and pressed the shutter!

Hi Jusni,
Fascinating bird!
It's incredible how colourful it is, and you managed to get the photo done quick enough before it was gone, good timing.
Perhaps the pic its a little over contrasted, you can see a too defined band along the transition between the white at the top and the rest of the background.
Well done and thanks for share.
