Nunca habia visto un pajaro como este.
La definicion de la imagen es excelente y esas tonalidades azules son realmente atractivas.


Beautiful picture of this lovely bird, Luis.
Just the perfect kind of exposure in the ambient light.

Hello Luis,
A wonderful shot of the Blue-gray Tanager. The focus is tack sharp allowing us to view it's plumage in exceptionally fine detail. Colors are well saturated yet natural and the exposure is excellent. Love the good eye contact with a bit of catchlight. The composition is very attractive and I love the clean BG. Picture perfect!!

Hello Luis,

Once more a wonderful portrait of yours. Interesting bird with a nice voice!
regards and thanks

perfect portrait, TFS Ori
