Where is the bird (Trouver l'oiseau)!

Can you see it?... Do you remember "where is Waldo" ...maybe that could be a new challenge theme.

This picture was taken in Paris, in the "jardins du Luxembourg". For those of you who know that place you will have to tell me why they have something around the tree trunk.

I used a tripod to ensure sharpness as I had to have a low speed due to time of day. No PP done, taken as is just added the frame.

I know there are many of these types of pictures out there but please tell me what you think anyhow...

Thanks for viewing, Marie-José

Salut Marie-José,
Si tu n'avais pas dit qu'il y avait un oiseau sur cette photo je ne l'aurais probablement jamais vu. Mon oeil était plutôt concentré sur cette belle ligne d'arbre gorgée de superbes couleurs automnales. Très bien réussi avec une superbe perspective.


I like it a lot, love the lines formed by the trees and diagonal lines by the light. really stunning photo. 9/10

love the composition, the light is lovely, great long shadows and colours, et l'oiseau! Thanx, M, (*_*)

Hola Marie Jose,

Nice shot... but incredible! Now i posted a photo: a bird in a park.

I change the title: "the bird II"



Delicate photo Marie-José. Lovely use of the light with all those shadows, good lines created by the rows of trees and wonderful colours. All topped off by a simple frame. Thanks for sharing your art.
PS Many thanks for your comment on Sunlit Detail

Hello Marie-Jose.

Regards, Francesco

Hola Maria José.

First I want to say to you that I like the composition very much. The lines of the central low perspective are broken by the bench just in the first plane, and the direction is the same of the shadows O^O. I like the autumn colours in the trees. The focus is perfect all through it.
The image looks very natural, but something sad and it's because when reducing photos they lose quality. Perhaps I miss some more contrast and sharpness (I'm betraying my convictions, but I'm changing because I'm learning many things here).

Très belle image, Marie-José! Voilà une photo où le ratio 4:3 de l'image aide beaucoup car il permet une ouverture vers le haut tout en demeurant proche du banc. Difficile à faire avec mon appareil de format 35mm, donc ratio 3:2. La lumière est très belle, et la diagonale du banc contraste bien avec ces lignes d'arbres. Un très beau souvenir d'un endroit superbe où il fait bon flâner! Bravo!

Cela fait plusieurs jours que je me dis qu'il faut que je reviennes pour te laisser un commentaire sur cette photo et d'une journée à l'autre, j'oublie tout le temps ou je manque de temps. Enfin, j'y ai pensé. Une très belle photo qui me donne l'envie d'aller à Paris. Belle lumière et belle rangée d'arbre. Le petit oiseau est une belle addition. Bravo!

Terrific composition Marie Jose, love the way you have the bench offset. And the line of trees really works well. The colours are beautifully saturated. Marvellous shot.


Hi Marie Jose,
Very nice composition. Perfectly chosen moment for the shot - the bench is almost aligned with the shadows. I love the repetition of trees guiding inside the photo. Very nice colours,a bit desaturated, adding calmness to the picture. Very good DOF. tfs
