[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
My favourite squirrels prefer to play with each other somewhere high in the trees, so I decided to take pictures of birds.

Hello Svetlana,
A fine pose from this cute little fellow!
Lovely details in the plumage, that always looks fluffy in the colder winter days...
Natural colours in this well done close-up!

Hello Svetlana,
Good image!
I like the bird's details and the DOF applied.

Well done

Hello Svetlana

A beautiful close up of this cute little bird.
The POV is amazing.
Excellent sharpness and focus ,you have captured very good eye contact.
He looks very friendly.
The plumage detail and colour is superb,but the texture and detail in the legs and feet are amazing.
Great job.


Hi Svetlana.
Very nice bird picture at close distance. Excellent details and sharpness of the tit image. I have tried to correct light and shadow and got rather nice effect. Colours on the head and chest became more natural. My best wishes and TFS.

hi Svetlana,
I like so much this picture, this little bird seems to have lost the way home and it is looking around to recognize where to go, great capture Svetlana, brava

Hello Svet wonderfull capture good exposure of difficult subject needing wide dynamic range you handled it beautifully. Central composition was fine. tfs rgds Necip

Ola Svetlana
Linda foto desta ave encantadora, a claridade da foto é excelente, gostei tambem da nitidez e a focalização da ave, e sua posição na imagem. A composição de fundo deixa a foto bem interessante.

This is one of the species that I'm after for too long, but with no success. You present it here with a nice composition. I think your camera tricked you with so much white on the background. You should have raised about one spot on the exposure to keep the whites white.

Best regards,

Filipe Caetano.
