[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Crimson Rosella is a relatively common parrot of eastern Australia, and is quite tame in many places. Getting a shot in a wild setting is not as easy. So I was very pleased when I found this cooperative specimen at Thirlmere Lakes National Park, about 140km south west of Sydney. Slightly cropped and sharpened.

Beautiful birdie, one of my favourite Aussie birds - along with Galahs and Major Mitchells ;-))
Busy setting, but there, that's gumtrees, I reckon. Overall a bit bright, it's evident you had some pretty harsh sun to work with. It may sound funny, but if your camera can do it, I suggest you try stopping *down* some (try one stop or thereabouts) on exposure (for the background) and then use fill flash to lighten up the bird.

Bonita ave Chris.
Bellos colores y buena perspectiva y profundidad.
La imagen no presenta la mejor calidad, tal vez por la compresion que le diste al archivo al almacenarlo (recuerda que pueden tener hasta 200kb.)
RealicÚ un workshop para intentar mostrarla mejorada.
Espero sea de tu agrado.

Pretty bird Chris.
Beautiful colors and good perspective and depth.
The image does not present the best quality, perhaps by the compression that you gave to the file when save it (remember that they can have until 200kb.)
I made a workshop to try to show improved it. I hope you like it.

Hi Chris

Nice shot. Good clarity, colours, sharpness and detail. Thanks. :-)
