Hi Sabine.
With your charming sparrow we really have a good week start. Very cute scene, perfect reproduction of the state of mood of these birds. Scenery is so cute and shot is exposure very well despite contrast subject. Bravo and TFS.

A perfect title for this pair..your choice of aperture and shutter speed has cancelled out what seems to have been very bright light...superb work and tfs

Hello Sabine, great Sparrows ! Very good composition, impressive sharpness and a gorgeous pose ! Just great ! THanks,


it is nice to see you Sabine,
and it's nice to see your progression with photography, when I look to your archive I can see that very well. the bird shot here is very nice, good close up shot with your zoom lens. For myself I have to much work on trek earth. It's not that I like this side any more, no it's the time to made critiques, to made photo's and to keep it by. Have a very good evening Sabine.

Hello Sabine,
Lovely shot of these two, they look just like the ones I have in the garden!!! They're very cute birds and fun to watch. The one on the right looks really funny with a squint in his eyes. Sharp details and I love their natural colours. A fine composition too.
Many thanks and cheers, Ulla

Hi Sabine

Apparently i missed this one from you...sorry :)
This is a very good and also funny capture; the title fits perfectly!
The pose you managed to get with this impeccable timing is exceptional and your POV here was also great for the job.
Good sharpness on both of them thanks to the correct focus and also the nice DOF chose - one that also gave you a lovely blurry BG.
A fine composition all-in-all.

Bravo and TFS
