The POV, lighting, colours, sharpness and composition are excellent and you took t6his with a macro lens!
Great work and TFS!

Excelentta captura asta. Sa inteleg ca treceti la fotografia cu pasari? E vorba de un pietrar, nu stiu exact specia pentru ca nu apare si pe la noi.
O duminica frumoasa.

Neata buna Mariana,
uite ca au fost altii mai rapizi si te-au dumirit ce pasare este.
Ca si creatie ... excelenta. Ce ochi de vultur !
Cred ca ai convins-o cu greu sa stea un pic sa-i faci si tu o poza pentru a ne da noua de "lucru" privind-o.
O duminica frumoasa,

Hello Mariana,
I like this bird-shot very much. The colors are most subtle and the contrast between the dark bird and the ocre background perfect. A bird, not often seen on TN. Very natural and pleasing picture.
thanks and kind regards

Buna Mariana,
Excelenta fotografia, claritate si detalii superbe. Culorile reproduse perfect. Nu cunosc pasarea, dar culoarea rosietica a rocilor imi este cunoscuta de pe vremea cand developam diapozitive pentru prieteni. Este specifica muntilor din Maroc.

Ciao Mariana. Superb capture, great contrast. Amazing light. Well done.


Buna Mariana.
Interesanta pasarea asta "marocana" de desert.
Buna captura cu un subiect dragut.
Multe salutari.Alin.

Hello Mariana!

Black and white birds are very hard to capture, but you did it very well. Exposure and details are very good. I like composition with different shades of 'rusty', desert colours.

nice capture, TFS Ori

Hello Mariana,

Best regards
