Cardinal for Werner
This is a lovely shot. The bird is a lovely vibrant colour and your blurred background contrasts well. I also saw Werner's shot and commented on that one too as this is such a beautiful little bird. I agree with your comments too on the subject of Jose's post yesterday. It is very sad. I also have received many encouraging tips and techniques from various members and feel TL is an excellent place to learn. I am sure Werner will be impressed with your image here too.
Thanks for the CU male cardinal shot - very colorful.

Beautiful pose on this Cardinal bird and nicely positioned in frame, focus a little soft but you may be able to sharpen it up. Great vibrant colour of this bird with good DoF. Nice work. Best wishes

Thanks Lori, I appreciate your kind words. This is a nice shot of the male Cardinal. You've already critiqued it yourself, so no need in me going into it other than to say Larry's workshop helps nicely. For the most part I think TL members are trying to improve their photos, so I believe in focusing on positive encouragement. There are some who don't fit into that category, so I generally avoid them.
Sorry I haven't been too active here the last couple of weeks, but I've been kind of busy with other things. I haven't been completely happy with the software I was using, so I followed Linda's (shelbeesmom) advice and bought Corel Paint Shop. I need to learn how to use it, and that is pretty time consuming. Hope to post again soon.
I'll try to find Jose's note to see what he mentioned.
Take care and have a nice evening.

I like this cardinal's expression...as if saying "what you want Lori!" Great colors and nice blurring of the bg. Well done, tfs.
Here in Quebec, we don't have as many Cardinals as you have. This one you share with us today is a very nice specimen with an interesting posture, the head being turned so we can have that important eye contact. As you wrote inthe note guidelines, the image is not pin sharp. This can be corrected and I made a litle workshop for you. Hope you like it.

a beautiful picture of wonderful posed cardinal,
this looking back figure is impressive, especially its shining black round eye is charming,
and also red body color is so vivid in this cheerful and blurred surroundings,
thank you for your excellent shot,

A very attractive pose from this lovely red Cardinal!
A nice composition adorned with beautiful lighting and a nice bokeh BG to isolate the bird!
