[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note


During my small daily peregrinations, I often see this friendly Robin, always in the same area. And I really got the feeling that this bird likes to be in front of the camera. It poses quite near where I stay and starts to present itself from every side, sings very loudly and stretches itself in a very relaxed way..
May be the bird hopes that I will work the soil a little bit to find a worm for it!
Anyway I have found a new friend and it is a great pleasure to have this kind of encounters.
The bird doesn't always chose the best places for the photographer, it's why I had to shoot a little bit against the light.

Hello Anne,
Beautiful photo of this Robin in stretching pose. Special light, this backlight. Very nice natural colours, good sharpness, composition and POV.

Hello Anne,
you have captured this robin in a nice and funny pose.
The bird looks a bit dark on my monitor but it's not easy with back-light.
It's well composed with a fine pov and good details.
Well done, mf.


Ciao Anne, lovely bird in nice pose against a beautiful blurry BG, fine details and excellent sharpness, splendid light and colors, very well done my friend, ciao Silvio

Hallo Anne!

Wer möchte nicht schon gerne vor deine Kamera stehen! Wenn ich ein Rotkehlchen wäre, würde ich es auch tun, denn so schön abgebildet zu werden, ist doch eine Ehre! Dein Bild ist so schlicht und schön, es besticht vor allem durch das feine Licht und die tatsächlich "freundlich" wirkende Haltung des Vogels.



An adorable subject again from you, Anne. The Robin looks so very cute.
The POV from below shows the bird beautifully. That lustrous eye with the light glinting off it has been very well captured. Despite backlight, you have managed a great shot.
Thanks and regards.

Ciao Anne,
una bellissima immagine di questo simpatico uccello che frequenta d'inverno i nostri giardini, hai colto una magnifica posa con una perfetta messa a fuoco sull'occhio di cui si possono apprezzare dettagli incredibili e la bella luce riflessa, mi piace molto anche la composizione con uno sfondo dai tipici colori invernali.
Grazie e complimenti
Buona serata
Con amicizia
