Hi Muhammad,

We understand you could not write a note because of the problems on TL lately... Don't forget to add a note as soon as the problems are fixed, thank you!

Kind regards - Viviane / Moderation

Hello Muhammad! Fine bird. Fibe scenery and background. Nice picture. Good effect. Well done!
PS. I was problem with TL too.

Hi Muhammad,
A clever low angle POV against a good bokeh. A slight loss of detail on its face however a great take.

Hi Muhammad

I've had a look at the camera settings you used and I have a couple of suggestions. The first is the exposure, you used matrix or pattern metering. This has caused the camera to evaluate the whole scene and adjust the exposure accordingly, and, because of the white snow has under exposed the bird. So the bird is quite dark. Perhaps you should have spot metered on the bird. Secondly you had a focal length of 300mm and a shutter speed of 1/160sec. This has caused some camera shake. You should have used a shutter speed of faster than 1/300sec.
Having said that, good composition and a nice catchlight in the eye.

Hi Shaukatmi!

Nice robin hood.
Nice scenery.
Good background.
Fine picture.
