majestic! TFS Ori

This is completely magnificent - I'm waiting for him to take a bow! The details are sharp, the colors vibrant, and the action tells me you really nailed the timing when you captured this. I love the individual spaces between the feathered wings because I am reminded of fingertips.

This is a glorious photo and what else is there to say?

Hi Yoram
Absolutely super! I love the pose of the bird and your sharpness, colour and eye catchlight are great. The composition is good and the foreground/background colours complement the bird. TFS

A brilliant shot of a very elegant bird.


Perfect picture. The colors, setting, background, focus, detail and sharpness is top notch. Excellent work.

Best Regards,

What a great pose you have caught, Yoram!
The light on it is good too, and the details on the feathers are superb.
Excellent management of the DOF.

Hi Yoram,
I was just wondering about your photos, and realised that I've missed your latest postings.
Warm lighting, exposure handling, colors and pose you captured are very good.
Well done and TFS
All the best,
