Hallo Thijs,
Alphen.Kan mij deze niet herinneren. Misschien een nieuweling. Ziet er heel exotisch uit. Goede focus and DOF. Het wattled gedeelte komt goed tot uiting.
Bedankt en groeten,

Hallo Thijs,
Leuk portret uit Avifauna. Doe tegenwoordig ook het liefst dit soort foto's omdat je dan pas echt de details goed kunt zien. De focus moet dan wel op het oog gericht zijn. Zoals in deze foto. Erg goed, ook al is het licht erg fel. Hij mankeert wel wat aan het puntje van z'n snavel. Prima compositiekeuze.
Groet,
Peter

The sharpness are really good and we can see all details in the head and it stand out nicely from the BG.
Well done.

Hello Thijs,
A brilliant portrait of this Wattle Crane, a species new to me! Not exactly a beautiful bird but your capture is very sharp and taken in beautiful light. Great focus on the eye and natural colours against a fine dark background.
TFS and have a nice week, Ulla

Ha Thijs,

Prachtige scherpe foto met een subliem oog.Kraanvogels zijn altijd weer een genot om naar te kijken.De vogel komt mooi los van de achtergrond.

groet,
Zeno

Hallo Thijs
The results of this portrait is super. All details and colours are seen with great clarity, and you have captured a special feeling in the Crane's almost see through orange eyes. The penetrated "look" is fabulous and speaks a story on its own. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.
