Hello Wally,
It's beautiful.
Well done fill in flash.
The bird is very sharp.
"...multi flash set at 1/16 power for a faster strobe". Can you explain this, please?
TFS and well done

Hi Wally,

Good detail in all objects of the image. Lighting well handled and very good background allowing the well lit bird to stand out well.



Gee, you certainly froze the action here. Great work! I too would like an explanation re: strobe etc.

Evelynn : )

Good details, colours and sharpen.

Bonsoir Wally
Wow de toute beauté, j'ai essayé plusieurs fois de capté un colibri et je n'ai jamais réussi une photo aussi claire et précise avec des couleurs aussi belles.
