Hello Jose, Fine portrait of this parrot. The colors are incredible, good details, and pleasing composition. The workshop image is wonderful and should be in the gallery also.

Amazing close-up and fine eye-contact with curious bird. Excellent cropping too. I am impressed with great colours and excellent, precise exposure. Combination of details of the main subject and blurriness of the BG is excellent. My best wishes and TFS.

Hello José Miguel,
Superb close portrait of a Rainbow Lorrikeet with excellent sharpness, colours, POV and composition. We didn't get that close to one when we were in Australia a couple of years ago though we saw many and took some shots that were not as good as this.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,

Hi Jose Miguel, this is a very excellent close portrait of this Lorikeet. The detail and that colour you've pulled from the plumage and that eye is absolutely incredible. This is the first macro of a bird I've seen. This guy is bigger than live. Excellent shot!
Thanks, enjoyed! John
Magnificent image of this colourful bird!
The plumage is so beautiful!
I really like the pose and the quirky look on his face :-)
Brilliant POV too.
Very good DOF and focusing.
Very slightly un-sharp and lacks a bit of "punch" so I did a workshop... I hope you don't mind!
Great image anyhow.
Well done Jose Miguel!!

Spettacolare ritratto, eccellenti POV e DOF, bellissima composizione con effetto tridimensionale, ottimi i dettagli, fantastici i colori. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio
I should name you Mr Rainbow of the colour spectrum....or maybe teh bird, but the combination of your eye/camera and image combined with the natural aspects are superior! No picture can do justice to such a creature but if one has to try, then you did it very well!

I hope you'll have a lovely time in Australia - there is so much to see as regards wildlife and all so different! This is certainly a striking bird when you first arrive there, rather noisy though!:-) Very fine close-up of this one watching you with its bright red eye! Excellent sharpness and natural colours.
TFS and regards, Ulla

Can I be honest? It seems that the picture in WS (yours) works better to me as details, composition, colors and environment are just great! I can tell the same about this picture except as it for details. I think that your lovely model might have moved a bit during the shot which is not an easy pic to catch at 1/125 sec... I do appreciate this splash of colors a lot though in a country where we barely have a glimpse of spring :) Thanks a lot for sharing those nice and joyful pictures! Greetings from Quebec :)

You have isolated this extremely colourful Lorikeet from the busy BG with deft use of your camera settings, JM.
The close-up of the bird's upper body and head is sharp, crisp and beautiful.
Great image from your trip to Australia.

¡Qué preciosidad de lorito has retratado aquí! ¡Qué riqueza de colores, y qué graciosa pose le pillaste! El contacto visual resulta encantador. Un retrato precioso y genial en todos los aspectos. Me encantan el encuadre y la composición.

WOW, I nearly jumped back when I saw this because it seems to want to poke his head through my screen. The colors are beyond vibrant, excellent clarity, and the composition is - whamo - you nailed it, kid! Love the texture, the details on the face, and the exposure.

This is a super shot of a beautiful bird. The glossy effect on the green part of the plumage is very fascinating and interesting. I have seen many of these birds before, but this one is an absolute eye-catcher. I like the different colours, forming stripes on the plumage. The red circle around the eye place the cherry on the cake and rounds of this beautiful photo. Thank you for sharing this beauty with us. A beautiful portrait. Framing and presentation are excellent.

Hola José Miguel,
cuanto tiempo sin ver tus trabajos,
preciosa captura y colorido extramo,
me gusta el WS,
cuando gustes puedes visitar, Mi web site: www.victorcardoso.es.
Hello Jose Miguel,
WOW!!! What an amazing and colorful Lorikeet!!! Nature will never stop to impress me! You got a great PoV and managed perfectly the exposition. I think more sharpness can be added to the feathers and it is why I like Joey workshop!
One question: why have you used AI Servo AF instead of One shot or AI Focus? I'm using AI Servo AF only for birds in flight.
One day I hope I will have the chance to visit that great country which is Australia! So open great your eyes for me also ;-)
Bye and have a nice and enjoyable trip, lucky you ;-)))

Hola José Miguel,
LA foto tiene una composición y clorido alucinante, me gusta mucho. Pero creo que el diafragma y la velocidad baja afectaron un poco a la nitidez. A mi hija le encantó, tenemos una cotorrita que rescaté hace dos meses en el campo pero con pocos colores a comparación; ella es ahora una fanática de los loros
