[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Black-Capped Chickadee IV

Please, go there for info.

I dedicate this one to Callie, for its hundredth.
He is one of the most remarkable photographers on TN and one of the most admired and most prolific criticisms.
To receive a critic from him is an honor.
He taught me some ' trucs' for photographer that I use regularly.
Moreover, it has considerable qualities of which its legendary sense of humour which makes the desire of his friend Japie.
Here, on TN, our images speak for us. The images of Callie speak about beauty, excellence and aspiration to the surpassing of oneself.
Let us wish that this attitude become a contagious disease.

Taken the morning of Christmas, by a sunny day. Sat on my mittens, the gloves to the hands, and a hat covering my ears. The birds, them, are all naked and they fly…
A walk as I like them, alone with my faithful partner, Nature.
From Her I comes.
To Her I turn over, peacefully.

I hope you like it, the last of the serie.

Luc, what a beautiful capture. 10s across the board!!!
Well done.


Nice capture of this little fellow, good diagonal, very good sharpness, DOF and colours, even a catchlight in the eye. The bg could be quieter, but when this is where you find them, so this is the way it gets ;-))

J'aime bien celle-ci Luc. Belle diagonale qui donne du dynamisme à l'ensemble. Bonne profondeur de champ avec piqué sur le sujet. La balance de blanc me semble un peu jaune.
Ton hommage à Callie est bien senti: j'y souscris entièrement.

Beautiful shot Luc. Superb composition. Very nice post. Good work

Encore une très belle photo, Luc, naturelle, bien exposée, bref, une parfaite illustration de cette mésange à tête noire. Je souscris entièrement, et avec les mêmes termes, à l'hommage que vous rendez à Callie. Je vous sens lyrique en ce moment. Il est vrai que la nature est souvent notre meilleure compagne. En tout cas, ici, et malgré le froid, votre très belle photo le montre bien. Bravo!

Great picture, Great capture and great shot!
Only the BG is a bit bad because it's the same color as the bird so the bird is disapper in the BG.
The photo is sharp but could be better with the Canon Powershot!

This is beautiful! I like the composition and innocent nature of the shot (not you). We should learn from nature - This little bird takes one day at a time, not like we do - months at a time.

Excellent work and I love this shot.

Great shot of a real cute bird.
The picture is clear, with good colours and the note is excellent.
Well spotted Luc!

Morning Luc
Thank you so much for the kind words - It makes me feel so humble, as I, too, try to participate and share. And I too, love Mother Nature and are never more happy than when my wife and I are un the bush!
This is a sweet little critter, his colours are well defined and displayed.
The diagonal perch adds dynamism to the scene.
