Hello Michal,

I was reading your intro and I am glad that you like macro because I do too. Your first post is a bird - a beautiful one captured very nicely perched and very good details. I like the way you managed the light and depth making it contrasting very well with the burred background. Well done and welcome to TN.


Hello Michal

I really like the pose and the BG in this picture. However I think the contrast and white-balance is a little off in this one.

Welcome to TN!

nice photo very good details...

Hello Michal, and welcome to TN!

What a cute little Robin, Michal. This is a bird I would love to see.
It's a lovely pose, a bit soft, but for a first posting I say Well done.

Next time don't place the subject in the centre of the image - I Have done you a workshop for you to show you what I mean and I hope you like it,


  • Great

Hello Michal,
Welcome to TN and I like your first post showing the little Robin in a lovely pose. Good focus on the eye and fine colours. It stands out very nicely against the beautiful soft background. Well composed too.
Many thanks and regards, Ulla

Ostry rudzik, kolorki fajne. Nie wiem tylko czy u rudzików występuje dymorfizm płciowy, czy tez wywnioskowałe¶ o jego płci po ¶piewie?

Hi Michal,

The branch is framing well the bird. The point of view is allowing us to see the details and colors of the European Robin. The blurred background is putting at an advantage the bird. The surrounding light is enhancing the colors. Have a nice day.
