|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
Snapped this fellow which i believe is a chaffinch (although i dont really know my birds too well) on saturday morning.
Inspired by all the great bird photos on TN i thought i would try and improve my bird photography. I think i managed to improve slightly on my last little robin, and i have a few other birds to post from that morning.
Thanks for looking and any tips you can give me would be much appreciated.

Hi Ewan. This is the male Chaffinch as you thought. You have taken this with good detail and colours. you have used the light well. A good POV/DOF. Lucky to get this one with the lichen in the frame. well done TFS.
Nick.. I have done a small work shop.
You asked for any tips well just keep taking as many as you can in all light and learn the bird movement and just sit and wait.

interesante captura y composición...
nitida escena y encuadre.
Very good focus on this fellow. Pleasant sharpness. Natural light and colors are beautiful.
Perch is also special through the lichen. The semi-blurred branches
are generating depth. In addition you achieved a well saturated bluish sky in the background.
what a great capture with a superb little Fringilla coelebs.
Very good exposure, good sharpness.

excellent capture of the pretty male chaffinch enjoying the sunlight! :-) nice pose, good
colors and great sharpness and details - the lichen underneath him is a terrific addition.
pov and compostion are good, although i tend to like nicholas´s workshop with the tighter
crop even a tiny bit better. well done & best wishes, thor.

From my point of view, the particular lighting and colours make this picture an outstanding one. I like the overall impression created by the quite dark colour tones very much. The deep blue spots of the background contrast nicely with the very bright ones of the foreground. Moreover, the subjective impression that the bird is sad adds to the value of the picture.
