Ola Christodoulos grandiosa imagem de tirar o chapéu muito bem focalizada parabéns por esta belíssima foto.

Hi Christodoulos,

You're capturing well this bird by a good composition, a good focus and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the Glossy Ibis standing on waterside with long/curved beak, red head/neck and silver wing. Aquatic plant with green draws out well this Glossy Ibis.

Kind regards,

Hi Christodoulos,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the Glossy Ibis. The good luminosity is making the colours to stand out. Have a nice day.
