Hi Ang
quite incredible shot
well done

Hello Ang!
A beautiful focused shot of this amazing pheasant. Details as well as sharpness are good but white color which is not easy to capture with its full grace is a bit over-saturated. Thanks for presenting this beautiful species on TN,
Best Regards,

  • Great
