Hi Paul,
Great colours on the tit! With the snow and spruce, it's a beautiful composition. -12c not suited to beetles maybe but you may have birds still. Normally February should be very cold in my country too but we have very warm days here.

Hola Paul, Bellos colores,
buen encuadre, magníficos detalles y original bg... saludos

Hello Paul

Very nice presentation of this Great Tit with natural surroundings. The sharpness is a little soft but still leaving some details in the plumage. The dof is good letting us see the surroundings a little blurred. The colours look very natural. I like the pose very much. Oersonally I woull have cropped about half of the free space in the right and the top but that is a personal matter.

All over a nice picture.


Hey Paul,
This is like a winter postcard! I'm sure this guy would be proud his portrait, he even has a cool glint in the eye.

You've managed to get him sharp from beak to tail which is tough but still given us a smooth aesthetically pleasing background. The whites of the snow are perfect and the image is bright and clear overall.

So well done and thanks for the share,


Hi Paul,

Vey nice shot, the details and colours are very good!
Beautiful composition, well done Paul!

Hallo Paul,
Het mag dan een vogel zijn die we veel zien in de winter, maar je hebt hem prachtig vastgelegd. Hele mooie compositie en pose van je model. Scherpte is perfect, net zoals de kleuren

Bella imagen Paul con muy buen foco y agudeza, además de una excelente composición con la rama estéticamente ubicada dentro de la escena.
El contraste del ave sobre el fondo nevado es maravilloso resaltando la belleza de esta especie.
Gracias y saludos... Ricardo

Nice image Paul with very good focus and sharpness, besides an excellent composition with the branch aesthetically located inside the scene.

Hallo Paul,
Wat een fantastische foto van de koolmees. Schitterende kleuren, erg scherp en een prachtige diepte in de foto mede door de compositie. Ik dacht gelijk aan een kerstkaart.
