[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another shot from my friends hide. Although I waited for this Woodpecker to give me a better view, without luck. However I think the colours show off well. The shot was hand held at 400mm with a 100mm-400mm lens, spot metered at f5.6

Hello Byran, i think it is still a great shot even though you have only got a back view. The colours are good and focus. you have got a lot of detail in his feathers. Well done. TFS.

Hi Bryan,
Good image; another point of view....
Maybe a bit darker partially would have been a possibility; for instance the tree in the bottom corner to the right.

Hello Bryan,
Fine capture of the back view of a male Greater Spotted Woodpecker. This is sharp and the Bg is excellent but I might have cropped it so that the bird were more to the left, though this does not detract from the quality of the image itself.
Regards, Ivan

I like this view a lot, Bryan.
It shows his plumage from the back. I think it is rather interesting.
Very sharp details and good exposure on these black and white feathers.
TFS. : )

Hi Bryan,
Nice photo but over exposed which is burning out the white feathering. Perhaps if he takes you again you could try -1 exposure.

Très bel prise de vue, on voit tellement bien les détails. Je me demande si je ne préfère pas la première version où le cadre m'apparaît mettre plus en valeur l'oiseau.
Bravo grande réussite.
