[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
After reading the article "Behind the lens" on a Birds&Blooms magazine, I asked my boss to buy me a bird feeder. Last Friday I got one and hung it on a Crypt Myrtle tree outside my office.

This afternoon a pair of Cardinals just visited "their new home". I took this picture from the inside.

Thanks for viewing

Hi Hien Vy, Excellent capture of a lovely female norhtern cardinal from wonderful POV with nice DOF, clarity and delightful composition.
TFS and have a nice night!


Well hello LS!

Aren't you the lucky one? My boss wouldn't buy me a bird feeder, nor will they let me bring a camera to work. :) I am happy to say that I finally got a window office. :)

Hien, on my screen, this looks great! Nice focus, color and DOF.

Congratulations on having a good boss, and for this wonderful capture!

I'm very tired and going to bed now.

Take care,

Hi Hien Vy,
Beautiful caught of view of this cardinal to take a look of there new home,
good colors and light,
excellent focus too,

Oh my, what a shot!
Lovely light and color, just awesome detail and the clarity of the eye is amazing. I love that catchlight and the way you caught him looking so quizzically.. :)) That's a pretty, light, colorful shot to cheer you up.. :)) Many thanks and kind regards,

Hi Hien,
Your boss bought you a bird feeder?! Fantastic! Sometimes I take photos at the office but I always try to make sure that nobody sees :)
Great capture of a beautiful bird! Very nice colors and details.

Bonjour Hien vy,

Merci pour votre visite.
Ce superbe cardinal a l(oeil bien vif et intéressé.
Jolie couleurs et belle luminosité.Une cpture bien encadrée.
Mes compliments.
Belle journée.

Hello Hien,

You must have been thrlled to have such an interesting visitor so very quickly! It is an interesting shot captured well, despite being through a window.
I think if you pop it back into PS you will see that it will stand a little more sharpening, otherwise fine.

Kind regards,
Bev :-)

Hi Huen,
A very sharp close up of this colorful bird descovering its new home!
A splendid candid picture with the bird very attentive of its surroundings.
Very accurate focusing adorned with precise details and adequate lighting.
Well done,

Hello dear Hien!

Nice capture and composition but the shot overall is little out of focus but that must be due to distance and zoom in?? IMO!

TFS, indeed good try.

Best Regards,
