[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Turdus merula again. This is a male. They differ from the female in the ring yellow eye and beak. Besides the plumage is black. In the female is brown. When they get used to human presence, they become more confident.
Picture taken without hyde, about 10 m. away. Trimmed with LR3.

Hello Roberto,

Nice presentation and management of light. Black is always difficult. I would rather see the bird a little closer (enlarged). See ws. Attempted to make the bird more of a focal point. As the WS turned out, the bird is the "same" size, but had this crop been done on the original and resized for upload, the results would have been dramatic. Hope that makes sense? TFS.


beautiful closeup of the species. good emotion. nicely timed. tfs.

Stunning image Roberto!!
Composition could not be any better and detail is exceptional. Even though the bird is solid black you have captured the best aspects of it's plumage which is very pretty. Excellent exposure and attractive natural coloration. Great work!!
