Wow, Stephanie, stunning colors.
I have never seen a lory with colors like these.
Great POV and sharp details.
TFS. : )

Hi Stephanie Loh,
Superb close up shot. Sharp, details, and neat. Nicely composed and well framed.

Hi Stephanie,
Very strong protrait. Lovely colour and perfect exposure. Stopping down the lens a tad would have pulled a little more DOF out of the beak, but the eye is sharp and that's what counts the most.

Good detail in the plumage, nice color, well taken.

Hi Stephanie,
Great close up. I can even see you in the reflection of the birds eyes. Excellent work on the colors and sharpness and a pleasant OOF BG which helps to bring out the Lorikeet perfectly.

I like this beautiful portrait. The blurred background is pleasant. Composition, exposure, POV, colors and DOF are good. Perhaps more sharpness... Useful note.
Congratulations Stephy and thanks for sharing.

you are presenting excellent bird portrait photo. point of view, depth of field, blured background, vivid colours, focus, sharpness and details are great

Hello Stéphanie (do you speak french?)

What a great picture of this Lory!!! The details are very sharp (except for the beak) and I like very much the natural colors. You did also a great composition and the blurred bg compliments very well the bird! Great job and TFS,

Hi Stephanie,
Lovely colour and perfect exposure.


Hi Stephanie,

This has come out really good. Perfect BG, POV with great details.

Keep clicking and sharing.

TFS, Kiran.

That's very interesting, I was at Jurong on 1 October too! What a great place.

Good portrait of this lory. Great colours and good angle. The nostril area looks slightluy out of focus, well on my monitor anyway.

Well done.

Very nice picture, Stephanie. Great portrait, astonishing details and colours and nice framing.
PS: happy newyear!

The important thing for me is to always try and capture the eyes in good focus. You achieved this nicely.Having the bird coming from the side of frame is also something I find more appealing.
Good on you Stephany

Only one, ONE word:
Best regards and greetings from Canada from,

Hi Stephanie,

A wonderful close-up. Extreme colourful and nicely detailed. I like how I can see the mirror effect in the eyes, superb.

Hi Stephanie,

What a great close-up. I like the catchlight in the eye and the red is really impressive. TFS.


Wow! This is an amazing picture. Good level of details and fantastic colours. Great composition.

Well done! :)

Hello Stephanie.

Excellent image, very good details and colors.

Jose Luis.

Great shot! The colour, sharpness, all look excellent. May be a little more details on the red feathers would have been better. Anyways, nice work.

Very strong protrait. Lovely colour and perfect exposure.
