Hermoso, jamás vería algo así de cerca si no fuera por ti. GraCIAS.


Great shot Willie, I just think you should remove a bit nise.
Well done

Nice shot Willie.
Very colourful and good details.
Try to remove some noise.
Well done.

Looking at the thumbnail, I say "wow!" :)

Willie, Good impact with the bright yellow against the brown BG that sets-off the bird well. Nicely composed. Some noise as stated primarily seen in your BG but negligible. Great post! PS - Nice clean-up job in the workshop!

Una verdadera belleza de la naturaleza Willie.
El colorido parece irreal y lo has captado con total fidelidad y calidad.
suaves detalles en el plumaje y pico, con un perfecto DOF y un fondo en contraste al ave, completan una presentacion maravillosa.

A true beauty of the nature Willie.
The colorful one seems unreal and you have caught it with total fidelity and quality.
Smooth details in the plumage and beak with a perfect DOF and bottom in contrast to the bird, complete a wonderful presentation.

Nice bird and a nice mugshot. As I was saying there is a remarkable improvement. Excellent eye detail. With the exception of the noise it's a perfect shot. Download NeatImage from the net, most of us use it to get rid of the noise.

Powerfull colours!
Very nice shot, just a little nit with the noise, but nothing serious.

Lovely colours and detail, but very noisy image, as has been commented on already.

The colours are very vibrant and contrast nicely with the background.
The noise has already been mentioned and can easily be fixed with NI.

Willie, you did a great job here. How can a bird be so yellow? Great cropping and point of view.


What an out of this world portrait ! An image that melts your heart ! Dankie !

Another crisp, colorful shot. I just noted your info about the camera you're using - first time I've seen posted pics from a video camera, and they are frankly stunning! If you haven't used it, you can download a free copy of NeatImage (has many but not all the features of the pro version) which is very useful for removing the noise in the background if you're careful not to lose the detail in the bird. (as in the workshop red45 posted)

This a a great picture. The harmony of the colors makes it pelasant to watch. The picture is sharp. All in focus. The light is soft. presumably the ligth was diffused by wide diffuser screen ?? Well done !!

Tones, colors are really impressive. I like the design of the photo, it is really strong to emphasize the mood of it.

Hello Willie.

Excellent macro, very good details and colors.

Jose Luis.
