Quelle merveilleuse photo, Gaëtan. L'angle, la précision, les détails, et la pose de l'oiseau, font que le tout nous fait plus que simplement regarder, mais admirer cette photo. Quelle joie de «croquer» un tel moment. Merci de l'avoir présentée.


Nice shot.I like the ice and snow all around the bird, which is what makes this image so striking. Little bit of detail burned out on the side of the head, that could be fixed in Photoshop quite easily with a little bit of low opacity cloning. The coloured noise in the image could also be easily fixed with something like Neat Image.

Hmmm.... I am a little undecided! What do I like best in this image..... the sweet wee bird, or the wonderful shot of the hoar frost. It's a monster task trying to work this one out. I guess I have to say I love the entire shot. Just wonderful. Nice work. Thanks.
