Bird during an important snowfall here in Sainte-Foy, Quebec. The total amount of snow was 15cm and it was difficult to take that photo with this dim light.

Excellent composition! The branch leads the eye nicely through the image and gives a great sense of perspective. Looks like a female house finch.

I know just what you mean about the dim light. The one advantage is that the birds can't see us very well either, and they let us get a wee bit closer. :o)

Hi Gaetan,
it's a good picture you have capture.
The exposure is very good, not easy in the snow.
Well composed, good POV and details.
Very well done.

Hi Gaetan,
it's a wonderful shot at a beautiful moment.
Very good sharpness although you had bad light during the snowfall. Very well done, thanks

Great capture despite the light and storm. I love the simple composition! Just for fun I wanted to see want a little touch of Levels adjustment would do. see workshop : ) Thanks for sharing

Hi Gaetan

Sorry, no time for a proper critique tonight, working from my notebook on an expensive internet connection, back to normal tomorrow, but enough time to see that this deserves a big green smiley. Thanks.

Hi, Gaetan.
Lovely winter composition. Warm bird and bad weather together makes it work. Excellent exposure, sharpness and DOF.

Hi Gaetan,
Very nice capture. Great exposure and composition. You've done well with sharpness in the low light.
