Hi Sergey

This is one outstanding shot of this cute woodpecker!
I love everything about it! The sharpness of every small details is impeccable!, the exposure is spot-on and it reproduces all these wonderful colors perfectly!
The diagonal composition is charming and enhanced by thatsuperb BG that you managed to get here - one that complements the subject very nicely.
The angle of the sun here is particularly great, since it comes directly on the bird and gives you a lovely bonus - that great catchlight in its eye.
The pose of teh bird here is also magnificent and one can easily see that tight grip on the branch and those strong tail feathers that help the supprot.
What more to say: brilliant work!!!

Bravo and TFS

Very good picture of this bird.
Great colors and composition.
The background is calm and makes the bird to stand out.
There are some small white things and colored rings to the right of the bird which are a little distracting.


Hi Sergey
great sharpness and lovely eyecatch, just perfect bg
but imho the centered compo is far from perfect, too much empty space at the right

Hello Sergey,
Excellent photo. Wonderful details and very beautiful exposure with great natural colours.
Fantastic contrast against the blurred BG. Good composition and POV.

Bonjour Sergey,

Photo très esthétique avec un excellent piqué et de belles couleurs.les détails sont très nets,c'est impressionnant.



Hi Sergey,
This is not one of our native Woodpeckers here in the UK so it is a pleasure to see a super photo of this species. Much better than the book pictures I have seen.
Great shot,
Well done,
