This was my introduction to photographing birds. A good friend and excellent photographer, took me to the bird hide he has. Following this visit I purchased the Canon 100-400mm lens

Hi Bryan.
Your first shared picture is simply great. All component of the shot is excellent: captured scene, composition, amazing colours, sharpness and details of the beautiful bird. DOF is great too: blurriness of the BG is perfect. My compliments and TFS. Superb start and welcome.

Hi Bryan,
Congrats and welcome...
Congrats 'cause this is a splendid first post.
Everything is well done.
No nitpicking

Hi Bryan,
Well taken, sharp picture of this lovely finch. The white is a bit over-exposed. Perhaps you could remove it in Photoshop.
Keep snapping.
