[Notas - Normas] Nota do Artista
This is a species that I had problem to capture in to an intersting pose.I finally got that one at 400 iso ,the problem whit that species is that you see them most of the time on the ground and on top of that they dont stay still for to long.

Hi Michel,

Your patience paid off. You caught him in a wonderful pose. This is the first time I have seen a Fox Sparrow so I appreciate this post. It's a great shot with razor-sharp details and lovely natural colors. He stands out very well from the excellent background. Nice shot!

Bonsoir Michel,

une excellente luminosité sur l'avant-plan
avec un arrière-plan aux couleurs un peu tout petit plus sombre

Hi Michel

This is a new species to me - so thanks for that.

Great POV with excellnt eye contact and focus.

I know exactly what you mean about getting them up off the ground for a nice POV. You managed it well here Michel. I am impressed with the details at 400 ISO. TFS

Great photo in lovely red/brown colours. Excellent details and pose. Very good composition.

Hi Michel.
Excellent capture, great sharpness and detail, waiting did give you a great shot.
Beautiful lighting showing his colours, wonderful image,

Kathleen

Hi Michel,
Well worth the wait as it is a lovely little bird. Very sharp but a little over exposure is losing the definition in the chest feathers. Why not try exposure compensation and fire off the three shots?
Keep them coming they are great to look at.
Regards,
Peter

Hello Michel
Very intersting spieces to shoot,
Perfect details,lighting and BG,Welldone.

Good Luck
Fartash

Hi Michel

Well composed and I like the pose you got and POV.

Again another specimen for your album. A nice soft delicate bird, well focused and in a natural perch. Very nicely done. You enjoy these birds much as I do!

salut Michel,
tes images sont de plus en plus belles, la lumière est superbe, rendant très attrayante cette frimousse. Bon pov, netteté parfaite.

Dommage que sa tête soit coupée par la branche.

Bonjour Michel,

Je découvre ta galerie, et je vois que tu es "spécialiste" des photos d'oiseaux... toutes plus belles les unes que les autres...

Continues à nous les faire découvrir.

Merci et bravo

Bonjour Michel,

Hello Michel,
Fine capture of a Fox Sparrow with good pose, shapness, colours, excellent lighting and composition.
I have problems with birds that spend their time on the ground too: crouching down to get a good POV scares them away.
Here you have succeeded!
Well done and TFS!
Ivan

bonjour michel
comme marie l'a souligné avec son WS,il reste un peu de bruit dans le BG mais sinon c'est encore une belle image,j'ai juste une remarque a faire concernant la branche qui passe derriere l'oiseau et que j'aurais tenté de supprimer.
laurent

Hi Michel,
I like the wide frame comp, nice POV.
Very good detail, color, and exposed well..
Glad to hear this guy took time from his ground foraging, to hop-up on the branch and let ya shoot em' ;}
Well done!

Hi Michel

Sorry i've missed a lot of your lovely photos lately, but i've been very very busy with my new work.
This is a terrific shot of this rather rarely seen species - the fox-sparrow.
I really like teh pose your captured here - it was definitely worth the hustle :) The superbly patterned and contrasting breast is wonderfully shown.
Excellent sharp details and very good DOF, that completly isolates the bird from the BG.
Great job!

Bravo and TFS

Michel,

Great shot. Beautiful POC and very sharp. The Canon 500/4L IS my favorite lens. to bad it's so expensive.
Well done.

Hello Michel wonderfull pose and gorgeous detailed colours in the plumage. Very sharp and excellent composition. TFS best wishes Necip.

Hi Michel

This is the first time I have seen a fox sparrow. It is a beautiful looking bird. I love the pale feathers on the breast. Wonderful POV, sharp details and excellent exposure in this shot.

All the best for 2008
