In this one I like the blue around the eyes which match the sky...It is a keeper Luis! A simple picture of a bird full of symbolism of peace and harmony...and it does look content...You are a fine man!

Hi Luis,
this is a great shot. The focus is perfect, the colours and composition first class.

Hi Luis,

This white-winged looks marvelous against the deep blue sky. It shows the beautiful eye off even more. I love the position he is in. Nice composition on the diagonal branch.

Hola Sr. Luis,
This is beautiful! The pose of this White-winged dove as he turns round to face the camera against the clear blue sky is for me a refreshig bit of light and colour and the composition with the sloping branch is perfect!
Excellente trabajo amigo,

Hi Luis

I saw White-winged Dove when I was recently in Costa Rica, I didn't realize they had that beatutiful blue around the eye. An attractive species in flight though.

Great shot, I really like the pose / composition on the diagonal branch. Great contrast against the deep blue sky.

Well done

Hola Luis,
bello ejemplar nos muestras,
con original pov,
la linea diagonal da un bonito resultado, contra un cielo perfecto y sin nubes...
los animales donde se les muestra cariño allí se quedan, y seguro que en tu casa se respira amor,
un abrazo Luis y familia.

Hello Luis, very sharp details and great sky on this one, I also love the perfectly sharp eye and the overall quality ! Colors are fantastic ! Thanks,


Hola Luis,
Original pose la de esta paloma.
El detalle del reborde azulado alrededor del ojo atrapa la atención de inmediato, y crea un excelente contraste con el rojo del propio ojo.
Me gusta mucho el punto de vista aascendente con el cielo azul de fondo.
Felicitacones y gracias por mostrar la foto.
Un gran saludo,

You must have a lovely family Luis, this dove is so cute! The azure BG effectively emphasizes the coloration of the bird and that glinting red eye stares directly towards the observer. Good composition. TFS.

Hi Luis.
Excellent impressive pose of the dove and pictured scene at whole. Colours of the shot are wonderful as well as the sharpness of the bird and twig. Strong horizontal cropping is so suitable for this subject. Well done and TFS.

Wonderful plumage detail with lovely subtle colours.
