Hello Eleu,

excellent BG, excellent focus, light, colors, contrast, sharpness!
Congratulations and TFS

Um grande abraço,

Great portrait of a pigeon, Eleu.
I like the sharpness of the eye.

Excellent shot! Great composition and clarity, especially for a subject that doesn't stand still for portraits:) The direct eye contact is superb, not to mention the details and the sheen of the feathers. Well done.

Hi Eleu,

You got a great focus on the eye of the pigeon!
Great color contrast between the metallic tones of this beautiful bird and a smooth soft BG.
The sharpness and POV are well chosen.
Great work!

PS: A note would be useful. Thanks in advance.

Hi Eleu,
A very sharp portrait of this pigeon with a stunning eye!
A very smart bird! Great clarity in the plumage, perfect focusing on the eye and the beak!
A very neat presentation.
My best regards,

Hi Eleu,
Superb portrait shot on this pigeon, the clarity of focus is outstanding as is the DoF. The colours in feathers of the bird are showing a good colour in the light. Nice work. Best wishes

Hello Eleu
I hope to return next month when I travel to LV !
I invite him to take a turn in HD ;-)))

dear Eleu,
the red round eye on blue feathered head is very vivid and impressive,
a beautiful portrait picture of the handsome pigeon,
its shining feathers are wonderful,
original wild ambience is well captured too,
thank you for your excellent shot,

Eleu this is a great shot though I am a bit worried about the growth on his beak. Beautiful sharp detail and color in the eye and feathers. Nice job, Lori

Nice shot and great sharpness with DOF.I didn't know pigeons are so very beautiful.

Even if BG color is almost same than bird color, the good contrast highlighted the bird's head! nice!
