hello Tasos

super close-up shot with a low at the level of the bird POV,
excellent luminosity of your image, excellent sharpness & details
of the plumage, but (for me) it is crop very close,
you should leave a (little) space in front where the bird is looking



Hello Tasos,

This is a great shot of the turnstone.
The bird is sharp and I love the details of his feathers! It is a very informative shot for one who has never seen this bird!
Good light and a nice reflection in the eye!

It is a little too tightly cropped. I have done a little w/s for you which I hope you will like!

kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Tasos,

Good photo of the turnstone. Good light that gave natural nice colors. Very good sharp details of the plumage. Interesting moment got in the photo when bird was steping.
May be a larger framing of the image shoul have been good.

Best regards,

Calibration Check
