I waited for this guy to open his eye, I was rewarded with a warm smile. This was hand held!

Hello Preston

Welcome to TN.
This is a wonderful shot. Fantastic subject. So colourful. The only improvement would be to sharpen it. It would also be good for you to write a note on your subject. Excellent work. Look forward to more. Have uploaded a workshop giving the USM settings used. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Preston, welcome to TN. This is a great first posting. Colours are super. Good composition.I would like to know what bird it is though. Notes are great to have and read. Well done.

Welcome to TN.

What a beauty. I Love flamingoes. They are so pretty and elegant, and this picture just proves that again. I added it to my flamingoes theme.


A very nice detailed close up study Preston, beautiful warm tone and well composed.
Welcome to TN and I look forward to seeing more of your work.

Hello and welcome to TN. Lovely shot. Nice soft colours and the slight blurriness of the feathers add to the softness. Well done.

Hi Preston, what an excellent photo. I love the composition and the whole setup of this one. This is again one of those photos which is a winner and makes this hobby worth while. Technicalities well taken care of. Would give you two smileys if I could. Good job and keep shootin!!
