[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Great Tit, Parus major, is a passerine bird in the tit family Paridae. It is a widespread and common species throughout Europe and Asia in any sort of woodland. It is resident, and most birds do not migrate.

It is an easy tit to recognise, large in size at 14 cm, with a broad black line (broader in the male) down its otherwise yellow front. The neck and head are black with white cheeks and ear coverts. Upperparts are olive. It has a white wingbar and outer tail feathers. In young birds the black is replaced by brown, and the white by yellow.

Bella foto. ciao gigicacco

Very nice image Arunas, good detail and color. I might suggest removing the upper left and right corners in Photoshop so that the background remains constant. There are a couple of light, out of focus branches to the right of the Tit (3 o'clock)that should also be reworked with the healing tool.

Hi Arunas,

Nice picture of this great tit,well captured with good sharpness and details,I posted a WS to reduce the noise and cloned away some branches,



Hi Arunas,
Nice birdie..
Excellent sharpness.
Tight cropping to the left..

Hi Arunas,

Where is the other leg? Resting maybe... A good capture with sharp details and colors.WS is useful to bring out more details and re-arrange the composition.

Well done & TFS.

Hi Arunas

Top quality shot. Colour, sharpness and clarity are all spot on. The OOF BG (out of focus background) compliments the shot. :-)

Hola Arunas, bello disparo y maravilloso compo, excelente pov, Genial... saludos

Hello Arunas,
a common bird but so beautiful. Nice capture. With the right postprocessing you can make it even better (See paul's workshop). Only in my opinion the crop should be like you made it.

Ciao Arunas,
bella foto di "cinciallegra"!
Ottimi i dettagli e colori, bravo!

Very nice details and sharpness. It is allways difficult to catch these cuties, for me. Very nice job.
TFS Arunas.
