This is a beauty, Paul, I love it. We can see the environment of the bird and it is perfectly blended into it, by the "style" of its crest, its colour... thank you for a superb picture,

It's very joyful natural pose.The green twig in bottom make up good composition. because high ISO is visible noise in BG.
Best regards, also Paul.

Hi Paul,

I still love this cute little bird! His haircut is wonderful :-) A very nice pose on the branch. Colors, details and textures of the Crested Tit are excellent. It seems they always have fascinating expressions on their faces.


Niet veel licht, Paul.
Je ziet het ook een beetje aan de kwaliteit.
Daarom vind ik de eerste beter.
Maar de compositie is heel sterk. Ook een heel goed moment.
Zeker niet slecht dus.

Hi Paul,
A nice capture of this beautiful crested tit. Excellent sharp details and a lovely composition. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Hello Paul,

You have had very good eye contact with the bird. The light shining in its eye makes photo look very natural. Colors are well rendered and there is a fine match between the colors of bird's plumage and the background.

Thank you for sharing,

Hallo Paul,
Ja, al weer een Kuifmees, maar zo'n foto verveelt nooit. Prachtige setting met die blik recht in de camera. Jammer dat er een ietsje ruis in achtergrond zit, want de rest van de foto vind ik schitterend. Scherpte en compositie zijn perfect in uitstekende natuurlijke kleuren. Super!

Hi Paul. This one is even better. Yes its hair looks very smart. You have taken a good face on picture shaowing the markings well. With a nice POV/DOF. well done TFS.

Hi Paul.

Superb bird shot in very good perch and focus. I like the sharp details in shallow focus making the image pops. Well done and have a nice day.

Hi Paul,
Excellent shot!
Great composition with nice POV,
very good details and nice colours.
Well done!

Hello Paul
This is a lovely image with great details captured. I very much like the different "segments" in which the plumage is displayed. The crest is really charming and it truly looks if this "punker" is ready to "rock and roll". Thanks for sharing, this charmer and yes I do like its haircut. It is indeed lovely.
Best regards.

hej paul!
i like this little punkrocker!
you show it in a fine way with
good sharpness and a nice background!
well done!

Ottima foto e con soggetto molto espressivo!

Ciao e grazie, Emanuele
