Hi Sergey,
I fully agree with Jorge. This is a stunning shot.

Hey Serge,

Awesome portrait of this fantastic bird, I love the detail you have got and the wonderful composition. Colours are accurate and light is good, the background is ok but could be thrown more OOF, I have done a lengthy workshop to improve this aspect. Other than that nitty point I love this photo.

Excellent work my friend,

Hi Sergey

Great capture, very nice composition and I like the pose a lot as its quite a nice change to see the Woodpecker having a rest from his pecking, nice sharp detail, and the colours are excellent.

TFS Hilary :o)

Wow, stunning. At 280 mm! I guess you work from hides?


crisp clear shot of a bird which can be shy sometimes.
Brilliant colors.
Perfect composition

Hi Sergey,
This is really an excellent capture of this woodpecker!
It's very good the same level POV, you got wonderful details on the feathers and their vivid colors.
I like so much the light and illumination here, a very good exposition.
The background got is so artistic, so soft and with pastel colors.
The branch's texture is so good and detailed also.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Beautiful job Sergey!
Looks great,
