Dobar dan Zoran,

this is a well composed image, I love the blury suroundings.

It might be a Rufous Bush Robin, quire rare but lives in the Balkans.

I'm sure someone with greater knowledge will soon say.


Hello Zoran this is a beauty lovely sharp detail of the bird and lovely smooth background and surrounds great pose with the insect. tfs rgds Necip.

Hello Zoran,
This is a very fine capture of a female Stonechat (Saxicola torquata).
EXcellent sharpness and fine contrasting OOF BG in this pleasing composition.
Well done and TFS!

Hola Zoran,
bella captura y pose bonito,
colores y tonos como siempre excelentes...

Hi Zoran,
A great capture of this bird!
I like your POV to catch this moment, with the bird like an equilibrist on the very inclined branch.
Very appropiate the DOF used here, got a very soft background.
Perhaps it would be useful to crop a little at the lower part of the image.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

This is a nice capture Zoran. The pose and simple composition are great. I do think the background is so intense that it overpowers your little bird. It being OOF though is really nice. I'd be tempted to tone down the BG just a bit with an adjustment layer.

Hello Zoran,
This is a nice composition with this Stonechat female (Argus, Ivan knows everything, he's just amazing. He knows birds from Quebec as well :)! I like those tones of colors and beautiful pose from this lady. The only thing missing here is a little light in her eye ;) This is a beautiful capture even without it :) Thanks,

un joli petit oiseau posé sur une minuscule branche. Bonne composition, seul la netteté et la clareté peuvent être améliorées.

Hi Zoran.
Nice shot of this cute and unknown for me too little bird. Its pose and whole pictured scene is simply charm. In spite of long subject distance the image of bird is sharpened and details very well, colours are nice and clear. Well done and my best regards.

bonjour zoran
belle pose de l'oiseau,il me semble que cela manque un peu de contraste mais dans l'ensemble c'est bien net.

Cao Zorane!
Zaista odlicni detalji i kompozicija, svidjaju mi se te tople boje!

Hello Zoran,
I dont' know what kind of bird it is either but its a nice shot. I like the diagonal of the branch he sits on. And also the way the background blends in with the bird. Great shot. TFS

Thanks for your comments on my photo " Butterfly Fields Forever (32) " :o)

Superbes détails, curieux bruit dans le BG.

Ciao Zoran, very nice little bird with splendid color and great blurry BG, very well done, ciao Silvio
