[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The blue tit or Parus caeruleus is seen in Holland allyear round. Its colourful mix of blue, yellow,white and green make the blue tit one of the most attractive resident garden birds. I noticed that it's hard to get the right colours on photo. In my fist posting of the blue tit the colours were not bright enough. In this posting I tried to keep them as natural as possible.
For more info about the blue tit I refer to my first posting.

I have to say I keep being drawn to this photo time and time again, and I can only think that it is becuase of the simple but effective composition and the colours of the blue tit.

Other than being a touch OE'ed on the white, it is an exceptionally nice portrait of a blue tit.

Hi Zeno
This is a very nice capture of this dainty little bird.
The composition is lovely with the diagonal stretch of the twig and the colours are rich and natural. The DOF is excellent showing lovely sharp detail on the bird. The BG is just dandy - you do not ask for anything better. The exposure was on the button showing great contrasts between the whites and darker colours.
Very well done and TFS.

Hi Zeno,
This is pretty close to perfection! Perfect composition and framing. Spot on exposure with the beautiful colors and sharp detail. Great OOF backround. Superb work!

Hi Zeno
