Hi Peter,
Very good capture. No doubt.
And it is a great model too.
Good detail and tones in these greyish parts and whites...
Towards the tail a bit softer...
Good work.

Hi Peter

I love the colour tones in this shot. A very nice capture of this cute wee bird. Good catchlight in the eye. Lovely to view. :-)

salut Peter,
une jolie prise, le plumage a un aspect doux qui lui va bien.
Bon POV, belles couleurs.


Excellent capture Peter, the DOF/POV is maybe a little off especially on the tail, but with all that glass, I'm surprised you've done as well as you have.
I've images of both species and as you say the differences are very subtle I must admit, but fairly easy to distinguish to the experienced eye. I especially like how you've set the focus on the eye! Top capture Sir!


Nice composition on this, but have to agree with Ade about the POV/DOF.

Hi Peter,

this is a great shot.
Really great detail, the feathers are lovely.


Hi Peter...Good detail and complimentary background. Hard to get up close and personal on these diminutive birds, but you've done a good job. Best, Brat.

Wow Peter, another beauty from you! I particurly like the soft deatail on the feathers. POV is great showing all of the Tit's markings, nice natural colours and good catch light on the eye. Clean and sharp. Lovely shot.
