Hello Silvio,
Beautiful butterfly and well sharp picture. Exposure looks good to me. But personally I don't like POV here and too much BLANK SPACE in the right side. Although RULE says off center looks better but here it doesn't work, in my humble opinion. Otherwise details and colours look good.

Hello Luis,
This kingfisher almost looks like African Giant Kingfisher. I like its natural habitat and POV. Beautiful colour. But white feathers on throat and chest got over exposed, so details are not visible at all which we could see on its blackish and yellowish feathers.
Thanks for sharing,

Hello Luis,
Beautiful picture of this Mother and child. Light and details are very good. Well composition but eye level shot could have been more attractive. Well focused on them.

Hello Ron,
I like landscape very much and sometime try to capture although now I don't have proper lens.
I like this desert terrain. Well light and POV.
But personally I prefer more depth of field in landscape photograph. Although you have used f/16 but focus isn't well distributed (left part OOF) which I think an essential. Composition could have been more attractive in my choice where eye will not stroll through out the frame. I mean a focusing point which would be bit different than same terrain.

Hello Stone,
Beautiful Squirrel and quite well captured in its natural habitat. In nature it's always tough to get a decent picture and here timing plays a great role. I like the way you framed it horizontal way but its tail touched the frame; better to say a part is out. Colours look good and natural; sharpness too. Well POV.

Hello Ishi,
Beautiful species; haven't seen such bluish Grasshopper before. Excellent details and perfect eye level POV. Total OOF BG could have been more attractive but here plants are so close; difficult to do. Like vertical frame, perfect because here subject is in vertical form. Good work.

Hello Emin,
Only in your 31 years of age you are taking stunning picture. I can see that photography isn't for all; at least not for me :-)
But late but wish you Happy Birth Day.
Excellent BG and nice isolation. Like POV and those yellow eyes. Perfect exposure on such white white feathers.

Hello Jose,
Sorry I don't know the exact name of this species, but like your work. Your picture is showing that before clicking we should think a lot about BG, light as well as composition. First I see BG and here it's perfect. I like its composition too. In my test, here selective sharpening, only on Cicallidae, could have been more attractive. Good work.

Hello Asbed,
Sorry for such sad incident. I watched Bobcat Celtick's so many pictures when you provided me website where you post also. Thanks for the NOTE; and now we know how he helped you to find this American Woodcock. Unforgettable memory!

Now about this picture:-
Bird is hiding in the bush and so many obstacle which restricted viewers to see it clearly. Well focused on its eye even in such camouflaged area we can see it well. But in my test, POV isn't such attractive.

Quite well captured this Pied Kingfisher. Very well focused on it and got perfect BG. Due to harsh sunlight white parts look bit OE, otherwise pleasant picture.

Like such natural habitat shot where I could feel its habitat. Nice! Although a few part of white plumage look bit OE, but it doesn't bother me much. Nice BG.

Hello Tom,
Although I'm not such old member here in TN but I know her. One of her comment where She asked me why my username is 'Hotelcalifornia'.
May her soul rest in peace too.

Nice picture of this Bearded Vulture in gliding pose. Just don't like left side dark branch or wooden things.
