Hello Paul,
I didn't realise that we are neighbours!
A superb, close to perfect, capture of a Tree sparrow taken from a fine dorsal POV with its head turned to have eye-contact with the viewer. The technical aspects and the BG are top class,
Thanks and happy hunting!

Paul great detail in this one, and the bg resulting from the f-5 is wonderful. I have way too many of these in my yard, they end up displacing a lot of the other would be residents but your shot is really great.

Hi Paul,
Tot nu de beste en ook een van de mooiste foto's van een Ringmus die ik ooit gezien heb. Vooral het contrast met de vage achtergrond en het ontbreken van storende takken, maakt deze foto erg mooi. Uitstekende scherpte en compositie.

Hello Paul,
Nice composition, excellent details, very good BG.
Very sharp.

Regards, Marius.

Hi Paul,

We have lots of different sparrows here in Arizona but no Tree Sparrows! A beautiful shot against a perfect pale background. Wonderful perch showing off his lovely face and feathers. Excellent colors, clarity and composition.


Hello Paul,
I kind of like this one very much as well. For instance due to its pose and technically also 'cause of the bokeh and depth-of-field.
Composed very nicely.

Hello Paul,
a wonderful picture of the Treesparrow, a fantastic composition with a great pose of the lovely bird against a very good OOF BG, outstanding sharpness and marvellous natural colours
best regards

Ha Paul,

Prachtige foto van deze Ringmus
Uitstekende compositie en achtergrond
Prima kleuren, pose, POV en belichting
