Il papā merlo sta imboccando il piccolo.

Hi Franco,
I love this shot of this father with son ;-) You caught it very nicely! Composition, POV and DOF are great. The sun seems very bright that day, maybe I would have tried a little bit more contrast... Anyway, this is very well done and TFS,

A cute family portrait - well done!


This is a very nice shot, nice colours and composition but I've done a workshop to sharpen it a bit. Tell me what you think?
Thanks and regards, Ulla

what a great blackbird-family-shot, franco! :-)
great composition of the big brown and hungry "baby" and its
"thoughtful" dad.
thanks for showing the "nice" side of nature.
good job & take care, thorsten.

Great shot;)) Looks like a very tense talk between them;) TFS,
