What a beauty!! Excellent focus, sat, detail, and clearing of BG noise. Love the blur of the wings. I would have cropped the pic differently as the eye is in the center of the image.

Happy New Year!

Hi Roberto

First critique this year! I chose a really nice one. I love hummingbirds! Really excited to see them in Costa Rica this year. You captured this one very well! Great sharpness, and colours. your BG is well blurred, so the bird is defenately the main object. Great DoF and pose.

I wish you a happy new year, and keep enjoying nature!


Hello Roberto,
Lovely image of this beatiful little hummer. I actually enjoy the bullseye composition on this fantastic capture. There is no rule that says every picture has to obey the rule of thirds. This image allows the viewer to enjoy the subject at its fullest. Well done. :)

Great catch of the humming bird. Good timing and DOF.
Best regards,

Splendida foto per nitidezza e momento di cattura.
Buon Anno Maurizio
