Hi Ron ,
this is a stunning portrait of Cardinal , not only because it has a nice composition with good exposure.
I know from personal experience how hard it is to get the red color perfect, the details tend to disappear and the exposure of red tend to also be wrong with a digtial camera. You have to know how to do, what you have done here.
You have done very well with the details plumage , as well as with the dominant red color , the color reproduction is very good.
Impressive!

Hi Smitha ,
nice to see you on TN my friend, I visit TN sporadic now.
a fine picture , good komposion , nice colors and bird stands out well against BG, thanks to F/3.2 .
In place you have lost some sharpness run the eyes and beak because of the large aperture,
chest have sharp feathers. Maybe F8.0 would have helped
Anyway a nice picture .
greetings

a very crips and clear picture with nice natural colors.
You did well with both exposure and WB.

Hi Anne ,
nice to see a picture from you again.
A very beautiful picture of the flying dragonfly .
You have done well to freeze the wings and I think that DOF is very good, all the insect is in good focus and it stands out well against the blurred background.
Sharp fine details , natural colors and good exposure.
Nicely done, MF

Hello Marios,
a nice picture, well exposed with good white balance.
Also a good sharpness and nice colours. But I find it a bit tight cropped, I'm not sure about the square format is right here. A bit more space in front and less behind, maybe you could post a bit larger picture, you are allowed to post 800px.
Over all a fine picture.
Well done.

Hi Marios,
a pretty nice picture of this Ibis.
Pity its a bit over sharpen, we can see the halos around the dark plumage of the bird.
Also a be tight crop, more space in front and less behind make i better balanced.
Akrotiri must be a very nice place for birds.
Otherwise a nice picture.
Well done.

Hi George,
this is a classic composition wiht a small diagonal, nice to view.
Also a good use of the fill-in flash. Accurate WB and excellent exposure.
The sharp insect stand out fine against the blu sky.
Well done, MF.
