nice POV and good use of lighting....

Good sharpness where required.
Eye is clear and on focus.
Well done,

Nice play of shallow DOF.Goood shot..

What a beautiful show of colours, Annick! These Lorikeets are so brilliant. Good portrait of the top of his head, nice and sharp eye, and the blurred body doesn't look too bad either. I wasn't sure about that at first, but for this shot it seems to suit it. TFS

Hi Annick,

Good portrait! What lens did you use on this one? The dof is really shallow, but it works very well in this case. The eyes and beak are sharp and that's what counts. Wonderful colors. TFS!


Bellissimo il primopiano, Annick!
Bella l'espressione dell'occhio che ti sta guardando, stupendi i colori, complimenti!

Ciao e grazie.

Hi Annick,
Wonderful colors in this shot and species, never had the opportunity myself..yet :)
I think the shallow DOF either works for the viewer or it does not. Subjective of course. The full-front POV works well for this one..
Nicely done & TFS!

bonjour Annick
Excellente prise en portrait de ce beau perroquet
Les couleurs sont éclatantes et la netteté est parfaite. Félicitations pour la qualité.

Merci et au revoir...JP

Hi Annick

I love these cheeky charachters. You have captured this one well. Excellent colours, nice choice DoF. Well done!
