[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Portuguese]
I was visiting a Ranch near Brazilia at a city called Santo Antonio do Descoberto at Goias State. There we found two ostrichs. I captured some photos and think that this was very good. I croped it at Photoshop 7 and used the "One Step Photo Fix" by Paint Shop Pro 8.
Did you like it?
Your opinion is important.
Thanks a lot.

To use flashlight here was a very good choice. Great sharpness and dof. Congratulations for this one !

Wow Wagner, spectacular capture. The fill flash really did its job here, illuminating details like inside the mouth. Wonderful job on the crop and composition. Great expression too!


I agree with you, Wagner, this is indeed a very good shot. Best close-up of an ostrich that I have seen. Sharp focus, saturated color, good catchlight in the eye. Good decision to go with the flash.

Wagner, esta foto é incrível. Sei que você mencionou o corte no Photoshop, mais isso não parece ter afetado a nitidez sobre o avestruz.

O flash de fato causou um belo efeito; a ave de fato se projeta contra o céu azul.


Para mim, está entre suas melhores fotos até agora.

Hey Wagner,

Excellent shot. Your focus on the eye is really excellent and really does draw the eye to the photo. Well done

Lovely portrait Wagner. Very well composed and presented. You've caught the expression perfectly! Sharpness and detail is excellent. I didn't know something so ugly could be so beautiful!
Very best wishes. Vicky

Great portrait, nice colour and good lighting.

Muito bem, temos aqui um lindo exemplar, tão nítido que parece que está a a olhar nos meus olhos. Linda expressão e enquadramento, a luminosidade e o contraste com o azul do fundo está soberba. Parabéns!
Um abraço,

Wagner, que bacana! Eu adorei esta foto. Que nitidez, que contraste, cores...tudo. Mostrar só a cabecinha deste bichão foi uma idéia muito legal. Avestruzes são animais muito simpáticos, e você soube aproveitar! Parabéns.
