Ciao George. Perfect DOF and chromatic results. Wonderful light. Great work.TFS.
this is a nice picture of the Blacksmith Plovers.
Not easy to get right exposure of this bird with the B/W plumage.
I checked it in PS, the white is just over the limit but not much, thats a minor.
The picture is sharp with good DOF.
Well done, mf.
Have a nice Weekend.
Three times eye contact, very beautiful. Good saturated colours and fine sharpness and details. Pleasing environment and composition.

Hi George - this is a lovely well composed, and well exposed shot. I think you have done well to retain fine detail in the black plumage. Well done. Phil
Hello George Friend,
Certainly it is a painting rather "peaceful" compared to most of the pictures from you, where there is always something that enhances the visual and technical interest. But it is a matter of observing carefully, as surely was a real headache to find the proper exposure for these birds "gray, black and white" ... It's almost like shooting, small Holstein cows with feathers! ... ha ha ha ....
I see you again has "played" a bit with the saturation of blue water, this effect is really attractive to these photos taken with warm lights of the morning. For some reason, seems to me this "better conveys" the "temperature of the environment" (crazy ideas mine!). By the way, you've also saturated rocks different? or are the result just of the morning light?
Finally, as always; A excellent photo with a lot things to discuss! ... Good job of composing, leaving the birds in 2 [space] 1 ... I like it!
But ... Are you sure that you are not photographed these birds in a zoo? ... haaaaaaaaaaa ... haaaaaa .... haaaaaa ..! What fun! ... forgive me!... but really fun! ... Undeniable that your photos generate interest in various ways! ... a zoo on the edge of the sea! Sure only en Kommetjie! ...
I send a greeting and thanks for the "week of interesting sharing in TN"!

you surpised me this week with the birds images.
No insect macro's but beautiful sharp birds.
This one good pov and eyecontact with all thee, three of a kind.
Fine colours and nicely composed.
This type of plover is here not known.
Splendid bird, lovely plumage, splendid eyes too.
Very well taken, perfect of colors too.
Nice done, TFS.
Have a nice weekend,

Though the BG is not ideal, it contrasts well with the subjects, three Blacksmith Plovers, taken with perfect sharpness, excellent lighting and natural colours. The eye contact from all three is excellent too in this pleasing composition.
Thanks and have a good weekend,

Que aves mas bonitas, con esas tonalidades de grises y negras, y con esas patas tan largas, muy bellas, veo algo de saturación en las rocas... Pov excelente y gran nitidez

Striking birds George, great setting and getting all three in focus is no easy task.
To be honest, the colors look a bit off, my only nit.
Thank you & have a nice weekend!

Morning light is the perfect time for photography and you have a good chance of getting nice photos at that time. Beautiful birds and a well composed photo indeed. TFS George.

best wishes and have a good night my friend
