[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I don't think I have a major noise problem in this one, just a twig. I was so excited to see this young titmouse at the feeder yesterday. It has been so long since I filled them that a lot of my resident birds flew the coop. Unlike her parents this one didn't sit still for 2 seconds and was unfamiliar with feeder etiquette. I tried shooting her in several spots but this was the only one that was very sharp. I tried to clone out the branch in front of her but I couldn't do it so I gave up and again, hoped that the rest of the shot and the dof would compensate for the unsightly twig. Added a little saturation, adjusted the levels, added the frame, merged the layers. Resized, reduced noise and increased sharpness. Hope you like her. Have a great week!!

Hallo Lori..
Minunata pasarea ta.. Un POV bine definit!
Numai bine

Hoi Lori,
The bird looks very interested into the lens !
Great capture with good colors and clarity. Dof and Pov are great too.
The branch is pity, but it is better this way, than a poor postprocessed image.

Hello Birdlady

I did a workshop to hopefully correct that nasty stick. Otherwise the skill and patence has shown in this very sharp image. nice

Hi Lori,
Great shot of this young bird, the detail in the plumage is great with spot on focus, as you say the rest of the image compensates for the twig. Lovely shot. Best wishes

Very cute capture! Love the way the bird is posing for you. Great pov and it has a good dof with nice details. Wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

Hi Lori,
A very fine capture with excellent placement of the bird within the frame.
Your sharpness and POV are well done.
I like the expression of the bird with his head tilted slightly to the side.
No noise at all here, you have nothing to worry about.
Very well done and nicely presented.
Have a great week! TFS,

Ok ,this is sickly good photo! I love the natural tones here, sharp details, especially the blurred thin twig , make the viewers as if peeping the bird from your location.

Hi Lori, love the expression on the little guys face, you have managed a nice clear and sharp image with this one.Love the fluffy soft feathers. Fiona

Hello Lori,
