Hi Alexei,
One of the most challenging photo on the whole site. An absolute perfect telemacro, with stunning details on the spider, and very good light management (even the photo might IMHO be a bit darker). I'm not at all surprised that so many people (yes, at that time there was a lot here) liked the image. Fantastic image, hats off to you!
Kind regards, László

Hi Alexei,
Nice composition and colors, perfect DoF... maybe the birds are slightly oversharpened? In spite of this, a very spectacular image.

Privet Alexei,
What a pity you aren't here on the site anymore. Your photos remind me to the period when TN was full of life, full of great photos and photographers. Nowadays, only a few left and the site's agonizing. It's so good to see your work again, even the old images. Common bird yet excellent photo.

Hi Luciano,
Thanks to your unique light management, fantastic colors and a spectacular photo are what we get here. Good shallow DoF and unbelievable color contrast. Probably the moth could be a little (very little indeed) sharper, otherwise a photo to be proud of.

Hi Ram,
I don't agree with the troll, this pic is not bad at all. Maybe a little overcropped, at least this is what I think from the background noise, but everything else is fine on the image. First of all the composition's pleasant, this is the most important, and I also love lights and natural colors here. Sharpness on the wings seem ok as well. I like this photo.

Hi Asbed,
Captivated bird or not, a good photo, excellent textures on the unique plumage, with conspicuous colors. Probably, composing the peacock's head more into the right third might help to make the composition even more effective, however, a very interesting crop by the way. Spectacular and unique image. Congratulations, also for photographing a species new in your collection.

Ciao Silvio, my neighbour in the gallery today,
Wonderful macro with great composition, sharpness and lights. The perfect shallow depth helps the viewer a lot to isolate the tack sharp butterfly from the background. Great photo, maybe (color-wise) with a slightly more cyan / green than the optimal?

Ciao Silvio,
Orange butterfly and blue flower, quite effective color contrast against the dull brown background. DoF is good, too, although I could imagine less as well, with f/4 or such. Great sharpness as well, and an effective photo overall. Congratulations!

Hi Peter,
A conspicuously colored kingfisher on a perfectly composed image, very nice. I also like the smooth background, which doesn't gain attention against the bird, excellent shallow DoF. Top quality photo.
I miss your presence from TN, hopefully you return soon.

Hi Sri,
Today we're again neighbours in the gallery. Fantastic shot, the background blur's as excellent as on Marius' photo which I just commented. Colors and lights are spectacular, too. Overall sharpness is good, probably the reason, why not all parts of the plumage are tack sharp may be the wind??! However, pleasant semi-diagonal composition with awesome technicality, a very valuable image. Congratulations!

Hi Luciano,
Clear and elegant photo in your unmistakable style. Flash usage and exposure control are breathtaking, as well as the composition and the PoV themselves. Vibrant, vivid colors and great sharpness, too. Absolutely spectacular shot, and I hope once I reach this level with my new Sony. Hats off for this image, a perfect one! Bravo!

Very nice, sharp and clear photo of the common starling, with awesome background blur, which helps to concentrate on to the subject only. Excellent exposure, colors and composition also. A majestic photo. Bravo!

Ciao Luciano,
Although a common species, one of my fave butterflies, and I never get bored of looking at their images. Especially when they're so lovely as yours, with such excellent light management and colors. Your unique style of flash usage always impressed me a lot. Nice composition, interesting PoV / camera angle + perfect sharpness even on the antennae. Gorgeous image, congratulations!

Hi Ram,
One of your best photos so far in my opinion. Minimalistic yet spectacular composition, positioning of the moth is spot on, with perfect sharpness and colors. Even the antennae are tack sharp and the exposure's perfect. Lovely shot, absolutely deserves the highest rank. Hats off, standing ovation!

Hi Satirtha,
I don't find the image dark, eventhough I checked it both on laptop and phone. But it was very obvious looking on any device that you shared an exceptional photograph, with fantastic composition, colors and sharpness. I love your white balance with this little red overcast, showing the image was shot late afternoon. Hats off for this superb capture.

Hi Pierre,
An incredible macro, very spectacular due to the great focus. The butterflies don't add anything extra to the image in my opinion, but the well composed, nice and sharp flower's able to sell the image alone, especially with shallow DoF. Great shot, congratulations!

Hi Bob,
Beautiful colors and from the exceptional contrast I firstly thought you used flash (after reading the exif info I see you didn't). Absolutely excellent exposure and light usage. Nice textures, good sharpness as well. Maybe, if there is a direct eye contact with the robin, this photo would be 100/100 on my rankings - but hats off for the current image also. Great job.

Ciao Silvio,
Nice colors, sharpness and composition, however I think you should have removed that grass-blade which horizontally crosses the image as it's destructing the overall view a bit.

Hi Roland,
Majestic image with fantastic lights, colors and sharpness. Depth of field is shallow, but perfect, the usage of f/4 supported you well enough to achieve the necessary background blur, meanwhile the textures on the wings remained sharp. Great image, congratulations!
