About the Image(s)

The image was made early morning at a place called Chaki Mord in neighbouring State of Himachal Pradesh about two months ago. Shot with Nikon D500, lens 200-500 f/5.6 and auto ISO. I downloaded the image and processed it in Topaz De Noise and then in PS. To me the leaves to the right add interest to the image.

Subhash, I always enjoy your bird photos, especially since I've not been able to visit your part of the world. I agree with your choice on the leaves. There's a nice balance to the image as a result. I'm guessing the Thrush is looking for food in that direction as well. Well done!   Posted: 11/07/2021 10:58:36

Subhash, Wonderful image. The background enhances the image. Very crisp and clear detail. Nicely done.   Posted: 11/16/2021 20:22:40

Great capture. Looks like the photo was taken with very high iso but the bird is very clear. The colors are very beautiful overall, and the blur background is very nice. The face and the eye of the bird are little bit dark. You may try to brighten up the eye of the bird a bit but not sure if it will lose detail or not. Well done.   Posted: 11/19/2021 10:48:07

Nice image, good bokeh and the bird is nice and sharp. To my eye the leaves and the background behind are the brightest part of the image and take my eye away from the bird. I might recommend darkening the green in that whole area quite a bit to keep the eye on your main subject.   Posted: 11/19/2021 10:48:07

I like the compositional element of the handsome bird on his interesting perch. Also the repeat of colors of the yellow leaves with his beak and lichen. More of the same colors in the bokeh, which ties it all together nicely, but I agree with Howard that it could be darkened.   Posted: 11/20/2021 19:54:16
