Wow, Sergey! This is amazing! Perfect sharpness, composition and exposure! Amazingly good!
How did you treat this photo in the computer? Did you use a tripod? You must have been really close.
Thanks for sharing/Bengt

Great work here getting awesome detail on the bird and a nice composition with the branch. The background is still nice and out of focus even with f/8. The image is well lit, clear and bright overall.
This is another absolutely amazing photo from you! The quality of the picture is astonishing! Very good diagonal composition with a clean, blurred background. The sharpness level of the excellent details in the subject contrasts strongly with the background.
The image was very well exposed and the shadows and highlights preserved their details perfectly. I find it difficult to expose correctly an image with lightness levels that reach from black to pure white. You managed it very well my friend! Also great catchlights in the woodpeacker's eye!
I wonder with what you bribe the birds to make them come this close? I struggled several times for hours to photograph some finches but never managed to get close enough.
Overal an outstanding picture of a beautiful bird! Congratulations and TFS!
With Friendly Regards,
