Hello Redzlan,
A bird we don't see often. Beautiful light and colours. The crest is a bit overexposed, but the rest of the photo is very beautiful. Good sharpness and an excellent choice of composition. Very nice plain grey BG.
Have a nice weekend,

Fantastic bird with beautiful yellow hair. Super sharp, great composition.

Hello Redzlan,
Nice capture of a male calling Baya Weaver.
The POV shows his features with nice clarity and colours against a neutral contrasting Bg and the composition on the reeds is excellent.
Thanks and best regards,

To be honest, friend Redzlan I think you have missed a golden opportunity to impress some of us with that image. Don't get me wrong Redzlan in my view the composition and the posture of this fantastic little bird is outstanding.I have a issue with the white balance and the unacceptably high contrast settings of the image.Sorry despite good feelings towards your work a cannot give you a full smile here! Hope you understand me well Redzlan!
Best Regards,
George Veltchev

Salam Redzlan,
wow....this is a wonderful capture. Seeing the beak opened,maybe singing makes this shot so lively.
The sharpness is great and how much i like the graphical effect created by the bamboo leaves and branches. you have done a very tough job in producing such a pleasant capture.
Well done...looking for more birds.

Dear Redzian
Excellent composition - good use of the stems and leaves to direct the eye and create context for the bird.

Hello Redzlan
Superb photo, great contrast and sharpness.
Perfect colors, beautiful setting and excellent POV.
Congratulations and thanks for sharing
Hello Vanni

Slam Doc. Your birds series raised to an amazing new level with well crafted tones and framing. Very well exposed details and the perch on that bamboo stalk is just perfect against the silenced background. Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend. Regards. Jusni
