Hi Joseph,

This is a very interesting pose. You have captured the bird well and all the technical aspects are spot-on. Well done.


Ho Joseph. Well timed and crystal clear composition. Made unusual with the beak open. Good work. Murray.

Hello Joseph,
Lovely shot!
The pose is superb and makes this picture. The perfect details and natural colours are great too. I also like the light and POV.
Excellent job!

Hi Joseph

Another fantastic photo from you!
Again a great pose you managed to capture here. This little grosbeak looks amazing, with it's sharp and clear details, vivid and charming colors and very well isolated from that blurred BG.
Very beautifully framed and composed, too.
Bravo and TFS

Hi Joseph

It has been a while since we said hello. How are you keeping my friend?

Seems like you caught this female in a typical pose, chatting away (chuckle). Oops, my ears are tingling.

This is an excellent composition and great POV. The natural colours, crisp details, pleasing BG, and spot-on exposure give the photo a lovely edge.

Very well done and TFS.

PS. May you and your loved ones experience a wonderful 2007.

Hi Joseph.
What a nice shot and amazing captured scene. It is really great piece of luck. Outstanding composition, perfect details, sharpness and colours (both bird and twig). I like the illumination of all captured objects also the BG. Its colour tones and blurriness are suitable for main subject perfectly. My compliments and best wishes for 2007,
