Lovley capture of this Starling. Excellent pose and good composition, well done. Posts on TN need to have an accompanying note.

Welcome to TN Bjarne.
Simple a stunning image of this common but much under rated bird, the composition is very strong with the neck stretched out like this, even a clear veiw of the eye with natural highlight.
as has been said by others, the only thing lacking is a few notes about both the subject and how and where it was shot. TN is about learning from other how to improve our own photography and also learn some thing about the subject its self if possible. have a look around and see what some of the others here think of as a good note.
But anyway a crack good 1st post look forward to seeing many more.

An absolutely fantastic shot, Bjarne. Great pose, beautiful colors on this European starling and in the background. Sharp details, perfect exposure, and excellent composition. I would enjoy more information about your photo. Congratulations on a superb job, and a warm welcome to TN. : )

Hi Bjarne. What a fantastic shot of a Starling in spring. Was it sitting on an Ash tree? Your capture shows up the beautiful colours in the spring coat of a Starling and the sharpness is excellent. Great detail and light plus wonderful composition. Perfect I'd say. Welcome to TN :)

This is a wonderful image of this nameless bird, Bjarne.
Well composed with excellent color, detail, lighting, pose, POV, and BG,
Congratulations and welcome to TN!

A note is always appreciated.

Welcome to TN Bjarne. Your first post is excellent! Razorsharp details, great colors, great exposure, a strong composition and the captured catchlight in the eye of the bird makes this picture a pleasure for my eyes. TFS! Keep 'em coming, I know you will enjoy TN.

I ran out of smileys today but will give you one tomorrow.


Ps-A note about the photo (where it was taken, what bird this is, exif data, etc.) would be nice in future posts.
