[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Northern Cardinal is very well represented on TN pages, and there are here many good photos of this beautiful bird. So it is very challenging for me to upload another one. I hope it offers a slightly different point of view...

The upcoming spring is now announced by their songs and battles to protect the territory. This one was just chased by a rival from his land, he rests and regains his self-confidence. One battle is lost, but not the war!

Hi Eugene, the Cardinal does look like he's saying his prayers. Very good capture, and the lights in his eyes shine brightly.
Well done
Janice

Bonjour Eugène,
C'est très proche comme photo! Les détails sont excellents et j'aime bien sa pose et son expression. La lumière dans son œil est de toute beauté. Même si on ne la voit pas, j'aurais peut-être laissé un peu de place pour imaginer l'espace pour sa queue dans la composition mais c'est un avis très personnel. Merci!

Hi Eugene

Wow, It is hot red one,Your POV and composition makes the bird like a real cardinal and a king. although i think it is a little bit over saturated but i like the red color here. it match with bird pose.
well done

bonjour Eugene

quelle belle photo de ce cardinal rouge et comme tu le dit
d'un angle de vue différent, j'aime ce POV que l'on pourrait dire
en contre-plongé et le cardinal semble vouloir collaborer
car il lève sa tête pour nous montrer le bas de son bec,
excellent timing pour « shooter » la photo à cet instant-là

belle luminosité de l'image avec belle douceur des couleurs,
excellente netteté et détails du plumage, TFS

Bonjour Eugène
Belle prise rapproché, très belle couleurs et cadrage serré lui donne un air de méditation, le titre est donc parfait!
Amicalement Robi

Bonjour Eugène, le piqué de l'image est excellent, le background est joli et l'exposition réussie. Je crois que la pose et le POV n'avantage pas ce bel oiseau et que le cadrage est un peu trop serré à mon goût. Bon travail, merci!
