The House Sparrow - My 100th Post
Congratulations dear Goldy. You reached 100 post in a very short time. I have enjoyed every one of them! This is one bird that seems to be the same the world over. A beautiful House Sparrow posing as though he knew he would be part of a celebration. Excellent natural colors, sharp details and your always lovely settings. Heres to hundreds more.
You sure saved a good one for today Goldy. This is one of your best shots and if I have said that before then it at least ties...VERY nice image and so natural looking. Mine of the birds tend to look a bit contrived....but this one is just super. Congrats!
What a spectacular shot! Your notes are awesome as well - I'm constantly amazed at what I learn here - it's better than any class that I've ever paid for.
The colors caught my attention immediately, and my eye is drawn to the sparrow. The pose is lovely, DOF perfect, and POV has me looking at him straight-on. I love the way you compiled the photo - great contrasts, colors, hues, and composition.

Hi L'il Bro Goldy,
Another splendid shot of a bird in a lovely posture. TFS.
Bonjour Goldys, congratulations for your 100th picture! Time goes fast! I just went back to see your pictures and they were good then too! I always liked your forest pictures, the Corbett Park that you have shown us in all its beauty. And this little house sparrow is perfectly shot, it is sharp and the colours are natural looking and beautiful. I like the shadow and the faint light falling on the bird. Congratulations to you and may you post for a long time on TN, your contribution is superb and shows us India in another way than we are used to. Thank you Goldy,
Good composition.Great shot,splendid capture with excellent detail, but with much noise.
Congratulations for 100th post.
Congrats on your 100th posting! Wonderful capture of a house sparrow. TFS. Regards,

Very nice capture with good detail and great catchlite in eye although i would prefer to have seen more space in front of the sparrow than behind
congratulations to your 100th photo post, celebrating
with this excellent House Sparrow shot, fine POV & DOF,
excellent sharpness and details of the plumage,
beautiful catch-light at the eye, TFS
I'm really sorry I missed this one!
A belated congratulations for posting your 100th!!!
I feel I haven't paid enough attention to your photos (not purposely though!) so I will do in the future because they really deserve it.
This for example is an excellent shot of a Sparrow.
The composition is very good!
Good sharpness and very clear.
Very well done!
Congratulations on your 100th post. You have marked it with a lovely sparrow shot. These fellows nest above my bedroom window and are waking me up early in the morning. They are on their second brood.
This is a lovely sharp shot with a nice low POV. Nice pose captured and excellent DOF

Hello Goldy, very nice shot of the House Sparrow, very sharp and well exposed, well done thanks!
Many Congratulations and Thanks for your 100 Posts.
This is a fine capture of the House Sparrow which has now become quite rare in my area.
The details are sharp but I have to be honest and say that the dead space the the right of the picture would have been better used with the subject looking into it...I know so well captures of birds are not easy at all!!
congrats on your 100th post, a fine picture to celebrate with.
Good sharpness with fine details and well exposed.
he POV is also good, about the composition, prefer more space in front and less behind, but that's me.
Good note as usual.

What a shot, Sir.....
Much as I'd like to say that the others are right about the space at the back, I prefer this the way it is.Else where would your artistic licence go?

Just marking this wonderful shot, I will be back with a proper critique.
congrats on your 100th posting.
Well captured and presented house sparrow.Details and colors are great. Composition DOF are too good.
Thanks for sharing.
congrats on 100 posts. Good shot of this House Sparrow, with some very nice lighting, colour and details. I think it would look better on the right hand side of the shot looking into space rather than the left, but i guess that's just personal preference.
With a liitle bit "retard" I would like to congratulate you for your 100th post. We now will look forward for the 100 next. You show us a very commun bird in an unconventional manner,decentred, but in the opposite direction as usual. And it works!
Congratulations on your 100th posting on Trek Nature. You have chosen a very beautiful bird to celebrate it with, and it looks as if this one was posing for you just for the occasion. It is prim and proper and seems as if it is 2nd nature to pose for the camera.The details of the feathers and the clarity of the markings is really portrayed well. Thanks for sharing this great image and your presence on Trek Nature is well noted and appreciated. Kind regards.
ps.It feels as mine is still far away in the future,but I am already seeking for a specific topic and something specially I have in mind.
C O N G R A T U L A T I O N , G O L D Y ! ! !
Excellent shot, sharpness and the details. Very good DOF and warm lights. Thanks for your (always) useful note. TFS!
Very good exposure, detail/DOF, POV, and natural looking colors.
Well seen from your BG also. I agree with Gert, the bird should not be facing the corner, a bit cramped. But composition is always subjective..You know in Chinese philosophy one man's yin is anothers man's yang ;}
Congrats on the 100 mark, hope to see many more from you mf.

Congratulations for your 100th post to TE. The bird is very well located in the picture. The color of the bird arise very well in the BG. The composition is very well balanced.
Many congratulations on your milestone.
I see you have crossed the milestone with a combination of various shots depicting your talent as a wildlife photographer, as a landscape artisit etc etc. Your photographs also makes it quite evident that you carry a passion for the Corbett Park and is keen on essaying a role that will help the park through your contribution of work to it.It is very impressive an idea and appreciable an activity.
The sparrow is one of my favourite birds, simply beacuase of the fact that they are one of the most frequent visitors that i get on my balcony.And this one seems to have visited you somehwere in the vicinity of your home. I like the soft lighting yet the amazing clarity that highlights the features of the bird.Fine DoF and i agree with Gert on the palcement of the subject.The dark muted Bg helps focus on the bird completely.Well done.
TFS & Cheers

Your note has a lot of information. The bird being in the left end bottom corner is giving a good composition. The point of view is allowing us to see the details and colors of house sparrow. The light brings out the colors. Have a nice day.
