Hi Eugene,
Wow, that's a great shot. Interesting pose, great color, clarity and blurred background. Thanks!

This is simply breathtaking. I tried to add it to a theme I created, but no such luck. I'm new to the theme thing. Still a wonderful photo with clarity, sharpness, and POV. I absolutely adore the composition.

Hi Eugene,

Excelent photo of this tiny bird! Very good image quality with well adapted DOF showing good details on the whole bird body. Very nice soft light suited with the color tones of bird's plumage. Not least must be mentioned that image is very clear despite the very instable position of the bird at the end of the branch.

Thank you for sharing,

Hi Eugene,
What a wonderful capture you got there!
These little birds are to fast for me, thanks for sharing this little guy. Original pose, great sharpness and details. Lovely natural colours.
Well done

Hello Eugene,

Excellent capture of this kinglet. Good composition with a great timing. Excellent sharpness and very good natural colours.


This is an excellent shot of this little bird. They move so fast from one place to another and are very difficult to catch. You've done wonderfully here. The detail, background, pose and general composition is excellent. Very nice work. TFS.

Best Regards,


Hello Eugene,

Hi Eugene.
Fantastic shot in every respect. It is my new favorite picture. Bravo. Subject is amazing, quality of the shot unbelievable, lights, colours, correlation of sharpness and smoothness are stunning. Bravo.

Hello Eugene,
This is an excellent image;light, compo, perch, content, DOF, POV and so forth are all well done!

That's a beautiful shot Eugene. I love the roughness of the needle vs the smoothness of the bird. Great contrast. Trevor

Hello Eugene,
WOW! What a beautiful picture. Excellent clarity and sharpness.Plenty of details in the plumage. A fine pose and POV. I am adding it to my favourites.
TFS& Regards,

Bonsoir Eugène,
Ce sont les oiseaux les plus difficiles à photographier pour moi! Ça fait des années que j'essaie sans un bon résultat comme celui-ci! Qu'elle belle pose et détails! Ils sont superbes ces petites créatures. J'en ai dans ma région mais ils bougent tellement vite! Merci!
