Just a quick hello to let you know how much I miss you all and to wish you a great weekend! I am sorry I have been absent for so long. I haven't made comments in such a long time, but I try to sign on and at least look at all of your amazing shots and continue to learn from you. Haven't had much of an opportunity to take photos and my equipment continues to deteriorate which adds to my frustration but I still continue to try. All my same bird friends continue to visit so thought I would share this red bellied woodpecker with you. Adjusted curves, levels, saturation,merged, resized, reduced noise and increased sharpness. Hope you like it. Wishing you all well and hope to be back with you soon! Best regards, Lori

It's good to see you back, Lori. What an amazing shot of this red bellied woodpecker. A fine bokeh BG to isolate the bird. A very sharp image adorned with perfect lighting.
A very neat Nature shot.
My best wishes,

Hi Lori,
Nice to see you ! Great colors and details on this little fella. EXCELLENT lighting.... go buy yourself a new camera for the holidays- we miss you. Julie

Hi Lori,
Nice to see you around again. This is a most excellent capture of this beautiful pecker. The DOF is perfectly choose and it gave the BG this wonderful soft texture. Of course the warm colors are making it even better. A few point though. The sharpness is good but could be a little better. The top twig and partial leaf are slightly distracting and crop might just be an idea. I am not that bothered by the central placement of the bird.

Amazing capture Lori, such great DOF and detail!



Hello Lori,

Greeting and welcome back. Like the flicker ... cropped nicely. Sometimes I use the "stamp" to rid such distractions as the green leaf dangling above the bird. It's not something you could have "reached up and removed" just before snapping the pic, so why not?

Have a great day,

HI Lori, wonderful to see a beautiful woodpecker from you, perfectly presented. Hope to be back again here, too tomorrow or on Sunday. I missed all my friends, too here in TL.
Best regards Rose, slowly recovering.

Hello Lori, this is a lovely shot with very good sharpness, all the details of the woodpecker are very clear.
The yellow bokeh is a good bg contrasting with the colours of the bird.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hi Lori,
I love woodpeckers so I was immediately drawn to this. Very nice sharpness, great bokeh, just a great catch. I felt there was an overabundance of yellow tones, though, and have tried a workshop to correct it. I hope you are not offended... Many thanks and kind regards,
