Laurent bonjour, bravo pour ce beau chardonneret photographié à bout portant!! Il a la position d'un grimpereau!! Bon piqué et belles couleurs, mes félicitations, Didier.

Hello Laurent! Very nice shot. Perfect exposure, sharp detail, tight framing. Did you feed the bird so that it let you so unbelievably close? Congratulations,

sharp and nicely composed Laurent.

Hi Laurent,
great closeup with great colours that rock. A wee bit OE on those white bellyfeathers, otherwise good details in the feathers and the texture of the bark of the tree it clings to comes out nicely too. You perfectly caught the catchlight in its eye. Great shot!

amazing shot.

Hi Laurent,
beautiful pose, marvellous colours, well decided composition.
Maybe the white frame you put in seems to be just a bit too tightly placed around the scene - wouldn't that picture look even better without that frame?
Exciting, cheerful and activation contribution. Thank you!
Best regards,

Hi Laurent,
that's a wonderful bird, I love it.
You captured it in a nice position and with good sharpness and colours. I also had the luck to see one this year, very amazing.
Thanks and bye

Bonjour Laurent!
Good portrait of this colorfull bird. I like taken moment with bird with seed in its beak, nice blurred BG and composition. Frame also looks nice.

very nice shot. with intense, good colors. very good visual impact. tfs

Great capture with seed in beak. Great colours. I would have preferred a plain border.

What a fantastic perspective to shoot this lovely bird, Laurent! I thought only woodpeckers held that stance.
Great image with remarkable depth of view, colours and sharpness.

bonjour papa
très belle oiseau
belles couleurs et bons détails
bon constrat et belle luminesité
bisous je t'aime

A beautiful bird, one of my favourites.
The close-up composition is very nice.
I think that it has either been badly sharpened or not at all. I suggest you try using Un-sharp mask with a radius of between 0.3 and 0.5 pixels.

Great picture of this birs. Good color, pov and bg


An excellent picture of a wonderful bird! Great composition and superb colors. Sharpness and DOF also are very good. It's a pleasure to look at such outstanding work. Excellent job! TFS!


encore une fois bravo LAURENT
photo magnifique aux couleurs éclatantes

Tres belle capture.
belles couleurs bons details, bonne composition.
Un petit nuage devant le soleil aurait donne des tons plus doux mais ca ne se commande pas.
Personnellement, pas pu m'approcher d'eux a moins de 20 m jusque la. :-(

Hi, Laurent.
Very nice bird. Good exposure and sharpness. Very beautiful clean background. Like also pose and POV.
