Hi Foozi.
It is a very attractive species and you managed to reflect its shapes and especially colouration excellently. Dry tree trunk and branch create a nice composition. BG is a little bit but also is very cute. TFS and best wishes.

Hallo Foozi
Beautiful composition showing the "complete" Drongo with his beautiful tail feathers. Very nice light, sharp details and good colours. I love the 1000's of *stars* in the background created by the sunlight shining through the trees. Best regards and thanks for sharing.

Hi Foozi,magnificent capture of this drongo,spectacular exposure of this difficult but curious backgound and the best DOF for the best detail on the bird,a very bright blue too,i like it!Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano

Amazing metallic colours here MF Foozi! Great compo with the interesting white spots on BG!


Hi Foozi,
Excuse me, but this isn't your best. Wrong camera angle, soft focus, unbalanced composition with a little cropped tail feathers. I don't like the blown out spots in the background and the watermark isn't placed well either. I admire your work and you have a lot, really a lot of excellent images on the site. Unfortunately, this one isn't included. At least in my opinion.
Best regards, László
