hallo Sri
very nice coloured composition with good details and super colours
thanks greeting lou

Hello Srikumar,
very nice picture of this Blue throated barbet. nice clarity.
but the composition is not very perfect(of-course according to me), you left too much space on the right side.
Any way thank you for capturing this nice colourful bird with great clarity and very perfect colour.
best wishes,
samiran da

Hello Sir...
You captured this pic very well....but if the subject was central or you should give less space on right side...then the pic will become fantastic. .Overall its great pic with fine sharpness ...TFS

Hello Srikumar,
Nice photo of this beautiful barbet with a bit too much trunk, in my opinion. For a better balance you could have made a vertical composition, for instance.
Good sharpness and natural colours.

Hello Srikumar

Beautiful photo of the Blue Throated Barbet
over its tree, with fine POV, every one has
his taste, I prefer to see all the tree trunk,
beautiful light, the catch-light at the eye
enhance the photo by rendering it more beautiful, TFS

Hello Srikumar
very pretty bird. Exciting color combination. You have presented it in a very lively view.
Well composed shot.


Bonjour Srikumar,
Le cadrage me parait un peu trop grand pour apprécier pleinement la finesse des détails mais le sujet est tout de même relativement bien valorisé.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.
