Hi Albert

Very nice potrait. Its a sharp image, with excellent details and rich BG. I really like the way the crest is lit up!


Hello Albert,
It is colourful indeed...the BG colour is very vivid.
Bird is very sharp, it is a good close up.

Hi Alfred,

A beautiful portrait of the Crested Crane. The colors are just wonderful. Excellent details of the face and his marvelous feathers. The lighting on the crown shows it off well. He looks all dressed up and very proud of it.


Hello Albert,
A well balanced composed, with great details in the plumage!
The bird is well framed, the colours are well reproduced and the result is presented in this fine composition!

This is a stunning photo. Composition is perfect and the back-lighting is superb. TFS.
