Hi everyone, so this is my first post on TrekNature. :o)
What else I can say, I just love to take photos of Australia's nature.
Frogmouth is such a beautiful bird. I am always surprised by their face expressions. ;o)

Hi Radim
Welcome, very nice first post. It is a pity that you could not increase the DOF to sharpen the beak as well. A very nice photo nevertheless.

Hi Radim,
it's a nice picture you start with.
The POV is good and the details of the eyes are good.
Pity that the beak is OOF.
Well done.

Welcome to TN.

very wellcome on TN Radim,
I saw you nickname a few times one TE. Jammer is a Dutch word it means missery. Your first post is a nice one, I like the fantastic crop you made the eyes are great, and the pov and the details are good, very good job.
gr. jaap

Hello Radim, welcome to TN :)
This is a very nice picture to start with. I like the tight framing. The eyes look great too. As for the DOF, well the OOF beak is a bit distracting, but on the other hand it emphasize the eyes.
Anyway, well done on this one!

Hello Radim
Please except my apology for visiting you so long after you critiqued my impala and for giving you such a belated welcome to TN.

Your photo is very nice. It's all in those eyes. They are so large (typical owl) and so full of life, and you managed to have them spot-on in focus. I would like to suggest what you could have done with the beak which is out of the depth of field (DOF), but since your 'exif' file is not uploaded or switched off, I do not know what settings you used. You should really consider switching this on when you do an upload. It is very import and useful if one need to give advice.
However, well done with your first posting, I hope to see many more.

Fabulous. You made me curious to know more. I went on Google and look for Frogmouth bird. Unbelievable.
That's why TN exist. To learn more about nature.
TFS. Congratulations, Radim.


Hi Radim, This close-up has a real appeal to it. Can even see his little tongue (?). Very clear and focused perfectly.Well done.
