Hi Livio!
Looks like in photostudio!
Amazing BG and great bird!

Excellent shot Livio, great sharpness, details and colours, nice bg and contrast. Very well done, thanks for sharing.

Hi Livio

A quick critique tonight as it is getting late. Lovely shot. Good POV and very well composed. Nice colours. Sharpness and detail are spot on. Perfect BG. Thanks.

Sharper than a brand new Gilette! Colors like there are only in Brasil! :) Bravo, Livio!

Magnifique oiseau que je vois pour la première fois.


Beautiful bird. I like tropics shots because they are so vivid. Can't help it; I'm colour-addicted.
Perfect FG-BG separation.

Regards, Petru

Whoa, brilliant colors, Livio. I think a first for me. The colors are stunning, and I like the pose with one leg slightly raised. Great composition and POV. Well done and TFS. : )

Hi Livio,
this bird is wonderful, the yellow parts are so pretty. Also a pretty soft background - it seems like 3D.
Thank you very much, I like it

Superb capture Livio,
Good detail and colours. Great POV, BG and sharpness.
Nicely composed and good exposure.
Thanks for posting. Enjoy your week.

Hi Livio,
This one goes in the WOW! catagory. Beautiful saturated colors. The detail is very sharp. Flawless composition. He is very well seperated from the beautiful green OOF backround.

Livio, this is so beautiful and colourful, especially against the bright BG. I love your POV and sharpness. Good catchlight in his eye too. Well done.

Lovely colors and a spacious composition. May be consider a portrait crop instead of landscape. Very nice one Livio.

This is very nice Livio. Very good sharpness, detail and color with the BG setting the subject off well. Great work! Thank you.
