My friend, we are neighbors in the gallery today. :) Your photo's a top class one with fantastic sharpness, absolutely gorgeous blurry background which frames the bird very well and nice colors. Great composition also with using the branch (of a birch?) as foreground. Maybe, if You compose the bird to the right side of the photo and give more space in front of than behind him, it would even be more effective, but only You know if it was possible at all or not, and I admit the photo's pleasant to look at in the form You composed, too. I don't like the multicolor canvas, but the photo itself is marvelous. Congrats and merci mon ami.
Friendly regards, László

What a splendid little bird, taken with clarity and good oof background and good colours. I like the detail showing the pine seeds and the way the branch lies diagonally across the shot.

Lovely shot of a beautiful bird. Its diagonal composition as well as excellent details of the branch and main character, combination of lights and shadows (I mean first of all impressive dark green BG) are fine. TFS and kind wishes.

really an exciting one with the food sandwiched between the beak.
sharpness is well retained and the sttreaks along the wings are so fine and pleasantly featured.
Beautiful composition with excellent uae od light and graphical compo of the branch.

A stunning image, jam packed with wonderful details and fabulous colours, not only on the plumage of the Pine Siskin but in the image as a whole. I like the viewpoint showing the profile of the bird in full, this way we can see the actual size of this lovely little bird. The image is sharp and well presented. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Interesante trabajo Jean Paul. Destacaría la naturalidad conseguida ya que además parece que en esta toma hay poca manipulación electrónica... y eso se agradece.
Buen fin de semana: Josaep Ignasi.

Hi Jean Paul,
Excellent capture of a pine siskin in a fine posture on a trunk with great composition and flawless details.
TFS and have a nice WE!

We have these in Calgary; and, I had assumed that these were a cross breed with some Canaries that escaped into the wild.
So that's a "PINE SISKIN" and not a sparrow/canary/cross.
GREAT EDUCATION for me.
Very sharp & well focused image.
The colours are truely lovely.
Mario from Calgary with most friendly greetings.

I like the way you captured this colourful male pine sisken eating. It looks like he found a great place for a meal. The lichens add nice textures and colours to you portait as well as the sisken. Perfect DOF, lighting and detail. Your notes are really interesting.
