As I've read what :devtimbereclips: had to say about this epic shot, I wholeheartedly agree. The browns and reds that compliment the overall photo are nicely captured, though a little vibrant adjustment to make them pop from everything else would suffice an even better photo.

Might I also suggest angling your shots? This specific one is amazing, but as a photographer, you have the world as your canvas. Exploring subjects as small as a bird, or as big as a mountain through different perspectives of the lens is a generous approach to enable the viewer to understand your surroundings.

In short, I wonder what makes this bird so calm? What is so special about the location he's at? At this point, what is distinguishing you two from being face to face...more branches? A nearby bird house? Your front window? or a fountain? I'll never know based on this shot, it's a vague understanding.

Aside from your message being told through an image, just enjoy photographing and take it to a new level. :) If you have any questions or need anymore clarification of anything I've explained, just let me know.

Good luck! :heart:

What a shot!
You hardly ever capture the sight of a bird building its nest!
Excellent Work! :D

I can't stop looking at this picture! Even though the bird itself is a dull color, the detail is enough to catch my eye. :D

What a beautiful shot. I have recently become very fond of these sweet little birds; for years they were not seen around my house and then just this last year my yard swarms with them... such wonderful creatures to watch dance and flutter around the grass.

Gorgeous photo and very well timed!  I particularly like that the background has blurred to almost a single orange color, which really shows off the individual silhouettes of the bird and branches!
