Usei o PS para alterar o BG. Pensei em algo colorido para acompanhar as cores das aves, que são lindas. Pensei também em algo pouco usual, com cores mais fortes e contrastantes, espero que gostem de minha ousadia.

Hello Paulo,

Colors are superb ... the bg colors are also very good ... what is it? Details are sharp and POV is great. Pose of the bird on top is very nice. All the birds have catchlights in their eyes. All I miss is the note ... TFS!


Hi Paulo,
Brilliant colour!
Excellent composition, very sharp image.

Hi Paulo! I do not have the time to write a decent comment.

Thank you for sharing pictures and notes and for the enjoyment which they give to me.

The blurry colors effectively set off the birds very well, Paulo! This is a fine image with lovely tones and colors. Nice work!

Ola Paulo,

Very colourfull picture. Personally I don't adjust the reality much but try to shoot it.
I think you lost the focus on the birds. Red is an agressive color. when youused at the borders it "comes to you". So your loosing dept. In my opinion it is too much. The birds are perfect so they don't need competition.

The basic colors of nature pictures are the green and brown (earth-wood-etc.), but not on your picture.
That's why I like so much your shot. The nature can be colorful. Congrat! I like the sharp-blur contrast too.
