This is resident (and born!) in the back yard of my house! Here he got ready to take water in the source.
The strongest light is behind the bird but taste of the picture and your opinion will be important.

It a pretty shot !

Focus looks sharp and exposure is almost perfect. The only thing I would change if I was taking the same picture would be the use of fill-in flash. Colors in the birds would be brighter, you would have a nice sparkle in the eye and highlight on the rock wouldn't be so contrasty. Most camera can control fill-in automatically. However composition is very good and BG is wonderfull since it doesn't interfeer with the main subject.
Great shot and TFS.

Good solid detail, nicely exposed, just a little dark in the head area. If I might make a suggestion, reduce shadows and increase highlights, I think you can recover more detail and greater eye contact.


Excellent capture!
Great POV and well composed,
nice colours and details,
very good pose,

Hello Jose!
Lovely capture.POV,colors,details,lighting,framing and composition are perfect.TFS...:-)

Pode até estar em uma área escura - a sombra de árvores, mas está muito nítida e com excelentes detalhes, cores ótimas, uma ótima composição, o bem-te-vi também está com uma boa pose. Um trabalho muito bom e tem se levar em conta que é um animal na natureza não em cativeiro, gostei muito.

Hi Jose,
that's a pretty bird at a nice place.
I think Gregory is right, the bird - special his eye is a little dark - but I like the light coming from behind, but so the bird is dark. I try a WS for you and hope you will like it.
Bye bye and thanks for the wonderful bird

Hi Jose

A quick critique I am sorry to say. Busy time leading up to Christmas. Points only this time.

Hi Jose,
What a colorful, and beautiful bird. I think the composition and framing are excellent. It sounds like you have gotten a few suggestions on improving it some. I would agree with them. I love the pose you have captured here. Nice shot.

José Reynaldo, gosto muito desta foto.

Excelente pose, nitidez e composição. O contrast com fundo também ficou show de bola.
