I agree, there is a feel of an oil or gouache painting about this image. This female Downy Woodpecker is shown with that type of softness, produced by the camera settings in low light: it isn't as if she moved; the stump and its lichens that she is sitting on have the same softness.
Nice 'watercolor' BG and excellent composition.
Pleasing to look at!

Yes you have a way with birds. Very well done. I much appreciate your work in the flight of nature kingdom. One can think of a few things to do with these. They almost look seasonal as a landscape in a total way.

What an unusual picture from you! It looks to me rather like a painting than a photo. I have no idea what you did to achieve this somewhat artistic effect in your picture. It's probably a combination of a slow shutter speed, long focal length and some other factors. Anyway, it stands out from the rest of the pictures due to this effect.
The composition is well done and the square format suits it perfectly. The background looks wonderful and emphasizes the subject. Contrast and saturation were well adjusted. The exposure was also well controlled but I can't say anything about the details or sharpness since they're not compatible with this effect. Anyway, an original post with certain artistic values! Thank you!
With Friendly Regards,
