[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Again I am sorry I am a bit behind on looking at your wonderful posts. Working too many hours. But I am determined to post from this computer before I call it a day. I took this last Sunday during the few minutes of sunshine we had. Adjusted shutter speed and tried not to go to the 500mm to retain sharpness. I was inspired to share this today because I was greeted by the cutest baby house finch when I got home last night. It was sitting on the roof just above my front door. It was all fluffed up and it wasn't old enough to mind that I was too close. I can't help but wonder if this is his father. Hope you like it. Have a great day! I am a bit discouraged. After uploading it lost a lot of the sharpness that was there prior. Sorry about that.

Eyecatching image! Amazing POV and shallow DOF, great focus over the beautiful bird and nice pinkish bokeh. I loved it
Regards and BRAVO.

Beautiful framing and placement of th lovely bird in this shot! Although the sharpness could be slightly better I love the beautiful shallow Dof you achieved here with a beautiful Bg to compliment your main subject. Overall a really nice nature shot and Tfs!



Hi Lori..nice work....perfect focus and depth of field...nice work.

Hi Lori,
Another fine capture of this red bird with that touch of pink. A wonderful pose and a lovely composition. Quite a sharp image back by a locely bokeh to isolate the subject and render it a 3D effect.
Well done,

Francis Xavier

Hi Lori...
Nice shot with so great moment...
Nice colors, composition...

Hi Lori
Lovely and cute bird captured with beautiful natural framing of the tree branches and very effective bokeh.
Best Wishes

Nice Bird with Nice composition...


Hi Lori,

Another lovely closeup capture from a beautiful colorful bird with nice details!
The shot could be a bit sharper IMHO, but overall it worked very well as you could maintain a great contrast between the blurry BG and the bird itself.
The colors are natural and sharpness is well done.
Good job!

Best regards,

Dear Lori
good timing in catching the sweet facial expression of this cute brown/orange bird. clear details and pretty colors. nice BG too.

Great shot of this finch nicely positioned in the frame - excellent DoF putting the bg well out of focus. Best wishes

Bonjour Lori,

Nicely captured, this one! Great isolation of thr subject with your narrow DOF and good 1/3rds placement too. Colorful and lively!
