Coucou! Une beauté, un portrait des plus intimistes d'un geai bleu que j'ai vu. C'est qu'il te regarde vraiment, Mario! J'adore ces oiseaux et celui-ci, il semble vivant et non une photo.

Hello Mario,
Very beautiful sharp-detailed photo. The flash has the colours a bit over-saturated, or was it really so blue? But the pose, the composition, the POV and DOF are excellent. Very beautiful frame.
Have a great weekend,
Peter

Hi Mario. This Blue Jay is very interested in what you are doing. I do like the darker Bg. They seem to make the colours in the bird stand out so well. You ahve taken this one with fine detail and good use of the light. Well done TFS.
Nick..

Have a good weekeend.

Merhaba Mario,
Kuşlarla böyle çok güzel dostluklar kurmuşsunuz. Dostlarınız da size oldukça cömertçe pozlar vermiş. Gerçekten kıskanılacak bir arkadaşlık bu.
Fotokalitesi çok başarılı bir sunum olmuş. Renkler, tüylerdeki ayrıntılar ve artalan enfes. Elinize sağlık.

Hello Mario
The light and dof is spot on giving just splendid details.
You really have nailed a unique technique!!

Hi Mario
What a great portrait of this Bluejay. He's such a beautiful colour. The dark background really makes him stand out nicely. Excellent lighting, detail and composition.

Great POV showing the blues to a fine extent of this Blue Jay and the sharpness, lighting and BG contribute to showing it beautifully.

Hi Mario,

What a pose! He's not too sure of the man with the camera. The face, eye, plummage, and even the feet are marvelous with superb details. Beautiful blues and the black perfect matches the Blue Jay perfectly.

Hello Mario

A brilliant image of this blue jay.
The colours are outstanding as is the focus and detail.
The lighting is well handled,the bird really shows against the dark BG.
Well composed and presented.

Hi Mario

Lovely shot of this blue jay!
I really like its facial expression here - looking a bit inquisitive towards you :) The frontal POV is indeed very good and the eye-contact it resulted it adds more drama to the scene.
The details are excellent, the colors are gorgeous and the exposure is spot-on, giving you that very nice contrast with the dark BG.

Bravo and TFS

Hello Mario,
Excellent capture, beautiful vivid colors, lovely blues, very nice contrast against the dark background, superb sharpness and depth of field, outstanding details and good pose.

Bonjour Mario,

La prise de vue frontale permet de voir les détails et les couleurs des plumes du geai bleu. Le sujet est bien cadré. L'image est claire et nette. La lumière met en valeur les couleurs de l'oiseau. Bon weekend.
