Hi Tabatha,

I like the crop you made. This pose is very good and I like the smooth background.


Hi Tabatha,
Good portrait of this bird. Sharp enough, good colors and good dof.

hi tabatha,
very nice picture with sharp details..
i feel it is a very tightly composed picture. i.e, you have croppped tightly...you could have left some space in all directions

Though picture is good, i feel the bird size is toooooooo big. rest all fine.

One of the best 'from behind' images of a bird that I've ever seen. Great lighting and detail. Superb photograph.

Hello Tabatha,
Very good photo of this Titmouse. Excellent sharpness and pose. Beautiful light and BG.

Hi Tabatha,

What a lovely looking bird and I agree with you that they are very cute. The subtle colours are stunning and I love the tuft. The great pov, depth of field, detail and composition make this a great shot, but you have also captures the bird in a lovely pose too. Love it.

Hello Tabatha,
Well composed, excellent POV,...
A nit could be the shallow DOF, however...
Well done

Nice closeup view, very sharp image, wonderful details, soft natural colours. I like the way you cropped the shot. TFS

Hello Tabatha,
excellent close up, superb sharpness and depth of field, nice colors and very good light, great pose and terrific details.

What a beauty! I have tried many times to capture this cute fellow with no result! I don't see them often and when I do, they are too fast moving or too far. This is an excellent portrait, very close and detailed. I love its pose and exposure. This is wonderful!
