You've handled the light/shadow well, and I like the upturned head pose..
Well composed, nice color and good detail.
Well done and Thank You!

fine colours and sharpness
Wow, what a lovely bird. I have never seen one of these, so thanks for introducing it to me. It gave you a perfect pose to show off that amazing pink sheen on the edge of the wing and the fill-in flash gave you a nice little catch light in the eye.
The composition is great, the colours are stunning, and the details are very sharp while the DOF plane is clearly visible on the branch. The brighter OOF BG did well to enhance the slightly shady bird and the exposure was managed very well. Since half the bird was in shade you controlled the fill-in flash excellently to bring light to the shady parts yet did not OE on the brighter areas.
Very well done and TFS.

Very nice birdshot. I like the POV very much. The colours and the details are great. I like that there is focus on the brange aswell as on the bird. The background is perfect. Regards Mattias

Nonostante l'ombra, č senza meno la pių bell'immagine che abbia visto del maschio adulto. Originariamente creduto imparentato con genere Cuculus. Ora, creduto pių strettamente in relazione agli altri "Ground-Roller" di Brachypteracidae, ed al genere Coracias.
