This is exactly the setting I'd love to find myself in. Having a bird pose in such a way is all a photographer can ask for. This is a great shot. You've composed it very nicely, DOF, POV and colors are top notch. Great work and TFS.

Best Regards,


Bonsoir Eugène,
C'est vraiment une superbe capture d'un oiseau que je n'ai pas eu la chance de voir souvent. Tout est parfait dans cette photo, bravo! (j'aurais peut-être apliqué un peu de réduction de bruit dans le BG)

Hello Eugen,

Your photo has a very good composition. The bird placed between the red fruits look very well. You have got a sharp image showing well the bird. Light was well used so that colors are well shown. Background also looks very well.

Thank you for sharing,

  • Great

Hello Eugene,
Splendid coloured photo of this thrush. The contrasting colours are so beautiful. Great environment. The sharpness and details are excellent. Very good POV, DOF and a lovely BG.
