Hi Sergey,
Very clear image this wonderful bird.
Composition, colour and exposure is excellent. very well done.
Regards, Krzysztof.

Another superb one, Sergey.
Difficult one to capture IMO; it is small and it has white and black areas. You did a great job though concerning the latter.

Hi Sergey, great shot of the tit, good detaril and colour .i like the compostion. well done..

Very nice shot, I like the surprised look on this passerines face. The composition works good with this image as the weight of the foreground subject balances out. :)

What a cute little bird, Sergey.
I like his fluffy feathers.
The details are very sharp and the light is fine.
A shame there is the shadow of a twig on his body.
I wonder if you could have cloned it out.
TFS. : )

A lovely composition that is straightforward is the best. The DOP is really good because you kept everythign in the foreground in focus yet your background is well OOF! Color is great too because the tit stands out well from the BG.

I like that the tit seems to be looking our way. And its pose is just great!
