A view out of my kitchen window
Sorry about the noise in the bg. I should have used the Helicon Noise Filter. Just forgot it.

I thank you all for your comments and points.
I appreciate this very much, that you took the time to look at my blue tit.
Regards Rose

Hi Rose

What a beautiful shot, very nice composition and a wonderful POV, the details are very sharp and I love the colours with the red berries contrasting very nicely with the Blue and Yellow of the Tit, a little noise in BG but still a great shot.

TFS Hilary :o)

Hallo Rose,
einfach wunderbar Deine kleine Blaumeise. Ich wüste nicht was man hier kritisieren sollte. Pefekt - attraktives Model, farblich sehr schönes Beiwerk und dieses zusammen hervorragend ins Bild gesetzt, dazu noch der stimmige Hintergrund. Gratulation! Eines der schönsten Vogelportrait in TN. Danke.

Hello Rose.
I love what you have done with this shot.
It is a great composition and the colors and details are superb.
Great DOB and BG and splendid framing.
The only thing that I have against this shot is the amount of noise that it shows but never the less, it is a beautiful composition.

Hello Rose.

Excellent picture, very good details an colors.
Great composition.

the bg noise is tolerable as so mant lovely objects are there in the picture,
very well done,

Hi Rose.
Very nice capture.I like like this composition with beautiful colours and fine details.Pretty combination with colours fruits.Very good POV and sharpness.
TFS and greetings.

I down mind the noise.
Bird itself was beautiful (a good start).
Pose and composition are excellent. Colors are brilliant.
Branches in the way are usually disturbing but it is OK in this case.

das ist allerliebst - diese tollen Farben und diese süße Blaumeise, excellente Schärfe, einfach super, Danke und Gruß

Hi rose
Nice bird shot and composition. Good colours, light, sharpnes, details, BG and POV.
Well done Rose


I read an article the other day which said that some photographers introduce a little noise into their pictures sometimes to add a little texture to skies and backgrounds. I kind of like it here. That is quite a view from one's kitchen window. This little bird looks picture perfect...like it just came from the salon!....every feather in place.

Evelynn : )


Wow! Very well done.

Muy hermosa captura Rosa con gran sentido estético y buen trabajo de cámara.
Me gusta la agudeza captada, con intensos tonos sin innecesaria saturación con preciso foco (aunque algo soft, como se aprecia en el Workshop de Dotuan).
La combinación entre el punto de vista captado y el encuadre elegido funciona muy bien, realzado por el excelente fondo logrado.
El bello reflejo del ojo es un bonus muy atractivo también.
Un cordial saludo desde Buenos Aires... Ricardo

Very beautiful capture Rose with great sense aesthetic and good camera work.
I like captured sharpness, with intense tones without unnecessary saturation with precise focus (although something soft, like it is appreciated in Workshop of Dotuan).
The combination between the captured point of view and the elected framing works very well, enhanced by the excellent achieved bottom.
The nice catchlight is also a very attractive bonus.
A cordial greeting from Buenos Aires... Ricardo
