Hello Bunyapon,
What a great surprise to see you here with a new posting! And a wonderful one! Perfection all over. Fantastic sharpness, details and an excellent pose with eye contact. Just the best light to get the optimum details in the colours. Splendid background too. The best photo of a Red Bishop I've ever seen.

Hallo Bungbing

Hello Bunyapon,

Hope you are well. This is absolutely stunning as friends have observed.Taken from the back, this bird seemed to have posed specially for you.The focus is astonishingly sharp and the plumage of the birds appears so real that one feels prone to touch it. Thanks a lot for sharing a top quality shot, take care,

warm regards / Abid

Surely one of the best photographs (if not the best ...) I've seen a Euplectes Oryx. Wonderful focus on the bird and branch that serves hanger. Magnificent detail head with excellent eye contact.

Congratulations, Bunyapon!

Hello Bungbing, Nice to once again see one of your beautiful images.
What a gorgeous bird you have posted!! The exposure is superb and the detail is stunning. It's contrasting black and red plumage has been captured perfectly with well balanced lighting and crystal clear sharpness. Looks so real I believe I could reach out and touch it through my screen.
Awesome shot!!

Great shot. First you dont know which side the bird is looking. Wonderful colours and sharpness. Very nice

Bravo, Bunyapon.
Simply stunning bird picture with fantastic subject and unbelievable reproduction of every feather and other details of the species. Magnification level and composition of the shot are superb too. Well done and TFS.

Hello Bunyapon,
Outstanding capture,remarkable sharp details of plumage and lovely colours.

Hello Bungbing

Great close-up photo to the Red bishop, fine POV and appropriate
to his pose vertical framing, beautiful warm light and color tones,
superb focus, sharpness, and details, superb details of the plumage, TFS


Stunning plumage details, and great transluscent light around the head. Looking at the small photo in the gallery, I thought the crop was too tight, but it is actually worth showing all the details.

Hallo Bungbing
What a beautiful image! It is exquisite, has a great composition, excellent point of view, and the vivid colours are really special. If only I could be so lucky to photograph a beauty like this. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hello Bunyapon,
MASTERPIECE photograph of Red Bishop, excellent sharpness and details, excellent composition, excellent lighting and background.
Thanks for sharing,
Jah Thunda

Fantastic photo Bungbing! The composition, the BG, the colours and the sharpness are excellent!

Hi Bungbing,
Masterful photo. Tack sharp everywhere, even the smallest details are well visible on the orange/red plumage, excellent exposure. And what's even more important: exceptional composition with good choice of background. This kind of simple, grey-ish bg offsets the harsh colors of the birds so well. Beautiful pose as well... and one of your best photos. Hats off of you, Madame.
Best regards, László

Hello Bungbing,
magnificent portrait showing the Red Bishop in a very charming pose, perfectly approached and composed, the image effectfully reduced to the essence. An eye-catching, outstanding contibution. Thank you!
With best regards,
