[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is scrag, my semi tame garden friend who followed me around yesterday as I cleared out the ponds. Having nearly tripped on him I decided to follow him around with the camera. He was quite happy to pose for a few bugs in return.
Will post a closer shot and better notes soon.

Hi Sue

What a cute little fellow, beautiful composition and a lovely shot, the detail is lovely and sharp with lovely natural colours, I like the pose, it looks like he is listening to some birdsong, I'm looking forward to seeing more shots of Scrag.

Hi Sue,
He's very cute, and delightfully placed. I had the same kind of visit last year in my garden and also made the most of it with my camera. They do like to pose! I also like the background...he looks like he's in his natural habitat. Good clarity and colour in the plumage too. Great shot. Best wishes, Vicky

Hi Sue,
Fantastic portrait! The details and the colors are superb.
Well done.
Regards, Krzysztof.

A very beautifull bird. Last yr I had a similar friend same experience would almost fight with my gardening equipment to grab the worms as I turned over the soil. ou did a great job with this nice focus and detail. The DOF couldbe deeper slightly to get the tail but only minor the shallow DOF works well too well captured rgds Necip.

Hola Sue... una muy bonita captura con maravilloso POV, colorido, agudeza y DOF.
Me encanta el encuadre elegido así como el fondo logrado, aunque las 2 ramas cruzas justo detrás del ave distraen algo su visión.
Una bella composición, sin dudas.
Saludos... Ricardo

Hello Sue... a very beautiful capture with wonderful POV, coloring, sharpness and DOF.
I love the elected framing as well as the achieved bottom, although the 2 branches cross exactly behind the bird they distract something their vision.
A handsome composition, without doubts.
Greetings... Ricardo

Fantastic shot. I'm out of points today but I didn't want to miss this. Excellent shot. Sharp, great POV, lovely colours and a nice pose.

Hi Sue,
This is a great shot, i love the composition, colours and detail you were able to capture even with your limited shutter speed. Well done and thanks for sharing :)

Nice bird, excellent shot. I also like the background "composition". We rarely have the opportunity to arrange it, but this one also helps the general beauty of the image.

Hi Sue,
Nice capture.
Details are excellent.


Bellissima foto, Sue!
Ottima la nitidezza della testa e specialmente la luce nell'occhio del "pettirosso", deliziosi i colori, brava!

Ciao e grazie.

Great shot, good color and detail. If I was to fault anything it would be the fact that you could have used more DOF.

Hi Sue

I think this is an excellent shot of one of my favourite little garden birds! As far as DOF is concerned, I don't mind the fact that the tail is not sharp, you got the sharpest part right where you need it in the eyes. If anything, I'd go so far as to say even shallower DOF would be nice to blur the background even further, especially the bright green stalks. Of course, this is all easy to say after the shot is taken :) All in all, a great shot and I bet he's thinking "when am I getting another worm?" TFS. Clarke
