This kind of nature photography belongs to professional category, Chris, and you stand out as one of the rare professionals here on TN. Frankly, most of us others look rank amateurs in comparison.
This is a picture that represents the best in nature imagery.

Have a good week!
Best regards

Hello Christodoulos,

You're capturing well this bird by a good composition, good focus and very excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see cute bird with brown head and the body of white/black. The eye is so cute, too. The bird is holding the thin stick well. And, the whole is harmonized well by gentle color tones.
Have a nice day,

Kind regards,

Hello Christodoulos,
A funny "minimalistic" composition, love the way the Sparrow is posed on this fine stick. As usual fine light and beautiful tints. Sharpness at the top. I like the chosen framing too.
Kind regards

Good picture of this male "gorrión" in Spanish. A very good light and excellent sharpness. They are very common in Spain but when you get near of them like in your picture, you can appreciate their beauty. Congratulation for this picture. Saludos.

Giasou Christodoule
A perfectly poised with good eye contact.
Excellent detail and focus, good exposure.
A very lively photo

Hi Christodoulos,

The bird is well placed in the frame. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the Spanish Sparrow. It is clear and sharp. The good luminosity is enhyancing the colors. Have a nice day.


Hello Christodoulos,

A lovely sparrow, a species I can enjoy myself, in the different varieties!
Good details in plume and head, well framed on that diagonal straw...
Accurate DoF and fine colour palette!
