Hello! It's just me!

By tashi
Hello! Good morning!
Today's upload is that of a bird and it's my first time trying to take some bird shoots ... getting inspired by all the lovely bird shoots displayed in the EPZ galleries! However, I admit it was not a very successful venture ... managed to get only 2/3 good ones (and it's just my personal opinion). Suggestions on taking bird shoots .. most welcome.

Also, I thank you all for your lovely comments and suggestions on my earlier uploads.
with best regards.
Rani

Good bird portrait. On my screen it has a pale overtone - perhaps needs a bit more contrast. A

The pale overtone is not there on my screen. Can it possibly be due to some difference in the screen type?
Sincere regards...... and questioningly,

Seems excellent on my screen, I must say but there is always a difference between my main PC and that of my luttle notebook. Wonderful catchlight & eye contact, Superb colour and a fine portrait.

Nice capture. Larger birds allow you a little more time & don't teleport out of the frame like garden birds, and the detail on their feathers makes a pleasing portrait. Focus on the eye(s) if you can, or else the head.
