Great job. You've ended up with a very nice portrait. It looks like you didn't have a lot of DOF to play with but you've still managed to pull of great shot. Its nice to hear you guys help our feathered friends out in times of need - good for you. TFS.

A lovely portrait of a bird I hadn't seen or heard of before. Nice catchlight in the eye and detail on the feathers on his neck.

Wow this is a real close-up. Not just a small one. A real big and glamorous one. This is a wonderful example of an excellent portrait. The detail of this bird is really stunning. Lovely big shiny black eye, and the clarity of the fine feathers around the beak area is really great. Thanks for sharing. It was most enjoyable to look at.

Bellissimo ritratto, eccellenti POV e composizione con la messa a fuoco selettiva sull'occhio, molto buona la nitidezza nonostante la poca luce a disposizione, molto belli e naturali i colori e BG. Grazie e complimenti. Ciao Maurizio

Hi John, Excellent close up of this Apostle bird whi=ose feather details and colour are very good. Maybe a female? One of the best birs compositions seen for a while. The glint in the eye and the DOF are both excellent. TFS. Murray.
PS Pls check out Twin's bird photos on TL also.

THose are great shots John, I love that kind of bird, they are cute and look like a finch in black and grey. I like the "serious" cinematographic lighting on the head of the bird leaving the body in darker zone. I like glimmering pictures like the background here, it shines and has shadows, it's a nice effect. Thank you!

Wonderful portrait shot of this bird with amazing details on its plumage and a fine glint on its eye. Great use of flash lighting and you have captured it in a nice pose. Excellent POV and composition. Kudos.

The head is well focused/sharp with excellent detail and exposure, your dodge/burn has "spotlit" it well..
Great BG separation and catchlight too.
Nice work :)

Excellent close-up of the Apostle Bird in good light. Great focus on the ey' sharp details and fine colours of the plumage. Well done!
I very much appreciate these notes of yours on Brisbane and sincerely hope we can visit Brisbane when we next go to Australia to see my son in Sydney.
