Ciao Enrico!
Strepitosa è dir poco! Le piume sembrano le tesserine di un puzzle da quanto son ben definite...e che occhio! si intravede la trasprenza!! Grande DOF.
Composizione e presentazione perfette.
Bravissimo: complimenti.
Ciao e buona domenica! Vand

Grazie della condivisione

Hi Enrico,
amazing photo of this bird. Great sharpness and details. Perfect point of view.
Thanks for sharing
Maciek

Ciao Enrico,
splendido ritratto di fagiano, nitidezza super e fantastici colori, vista la postura del fagiano con la testa girata, personalmente, avrei tolto un po' più spazio sul lato destro per avere la testa/occhio più decentrata; l'ho fotografato anch'io a Gaggio, ma ho presentato un ritratto simile fatto al Parco di San Giuliano
Grazie e complimenti
Buona serata e buona settimana
Ciao Maurizio

Hello Enrico,
Your photo brings back many great memories from my childhood when these gorgeous birds roamed the fields and woodlots near my home. Those days have long disappeared as all the phesants and quail have virtually vanished from the area, except for the ocassional transplanted birds from the local hunting clubs.
I remember vividly hearing the Cock Pheasants early in the morning as they called their indistinguishable cackling calls.
We could walk through the briar bushes any day and count on flushing at least one or two birds with every drive.
Thank you for bringing back those wonderful boyhood memories with the posting of this beautiful image.

Impressive portrait Enrico! Excellent composition and great sharpness. The colours are fantastic!

A superb portrait of a male Pheasant Enrico.
The pose is just right for the POV taken with top sharpness and natural colours in a pleasing composition against a good neutral BG.
Thanks and have a good week,

Hello Enrico,
Perfect capture of a superb species of birds. Lovely natural colors, very good focus and outstanding POV.
I find them in the wild but, it was a very cloudy day and no sun at all, so that I catch a poor image....

Bonjour Enrico,
Joli portrait de ce magnifique faisan. Je vois qu'il y en a encore en liberté en Vénitie. Bon choix de cadrage vertical et des couleurs naturelles.
Bonne fin de semaine
Amitiés
Anne

Hi Enrico,

The subject is well framed. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Commonb Pheasant. The good luminosity is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.
