Hi Chi, nice composition. Although this bird is quite common it is not that often you get to see one close up. Great colours, DOF, detail and well framed. TFS.

Another stunning work Chi. you have learned very quickly to master bird photography and handle your equipment with real profesionalism.
Perfectly postioned in the frame, stunning sharpness and details. Well done mate.

Hello Chi,
Very nice and lovely shot. Beautiful image with good framing, POV, colors and composition you have caught. Congratulations,

Ok, now this is great composition! Thanks for sharing. These guys are everywhere but yes it is tough to get a good shot of them. Wow this is with a 150mm lense. Did you have a doubler on it? Love the sharpness and the colours.


très beau cliché !
Belle prise de vue et netteté impeccable !
Bravo et merci pour le partage

Running late Chi Liu, but Well deserved :-)

Hi Chi!
Beautiful composition! Perfect in every way! From the subtle intriguing BG to the beautifully captured bird, this one is a winner!

Hello Chi, this is a very nice shot. I like the bg - it really makes the bird stand out. The bird is very well focussed and F7.1 was a good choice. Well done

Good capture, the nicely blurred BG and the lines in the BG make a nice diagonal composition in direction of the bird's direction of view. Very nice warm colours and a nice complementary colour contrast with the reddish plumage and green BG.

Chi, lovely capture.

I like sharpness, pov and composition. The dof highlights the bird and blurs the bg.

Great job.

Hello Chi,

I sat a gazed at this wonderful image for a while...

It is quite captivating and I found the melancholy pose of your subject very soothing.

Great work on this fine image, thank you!
