Hi Eleu,
A bird on a wire! A fantastic composition with this cute bird resting amidst this wire fence!
Perfect lighting and good posture in the presentation. Nice play with shadows and contrast.
Well done for this creative work.
My regards,

Francis Xavier

Very nice POV, Eleu
The sharpness of the bird is very good.

Hi Eleu,I think he's just a polite bird, who is perched, & patiently waiting for you to take its portriat:-)
Nice capture of the light highlighting the bird,I like the shadow of the wire mesh on its body. I also like how you have the wire mesh gradually fading to the right edge,Good DOF. A good crisp sharp image.

It's a really nice shot indeed Eleu, but... it does lack a bit of sharpness on the birdy... the fence all the way on the left hand side is spot on though!
I'm not sure if you use the manual settings in the camera, but I think in this case you should shift the focus point a bit to the right...... I know, it's difficult enough as it is to photograph a bird anyway, they are quite fast... specially useing a 300mm lens!!!!
Taking all this in consideration it's not a bad shot at all!

Cheerzzz, Anneke

Nice idea, well composed Eleu. A small subject is not an easy one.

An honest appraisal; the bird is slightly blurred, only slightly, but it's there. Great use of the fence as a prop!!!! I wonder if you considered cropping this to a more panoramic style too. I'll do a WS.


This is fantastic Eleu. A typical beutiful female house finch deciding which way to go. :-) The color and sharp detail in the plumage is incredible. Just love it. TFS, Lori

Hi Eleu,

This is a great capture, well spotted. The detail on the bird is lovely and sharp and the composition has nice light. Simple but very eye catching image.



Hi Eleu..nice job with the focus...well composed shot.


dear Elue,
the bird is just on border line between in and out,
it can stay in, and also it can fly out, it is quite free, just like someone,
anyway a beautiful picture of lovely little bird indeed,
thank you for your excellent shot,

I love its simplicity. A repetitive pattern with a bird.
