Hi Ori,
Very spectacular macro, like little fireworks or aan exploding star in the space. Great DoF, sharpness and contrast, exceptional composition and flash usage. Impressive capture. Bravo!

Hi Ron,
Fantastic moth, which is not seen too often, especially not on the pages of TN. Perfect macro, superb composition - most parts of the wings are tack sharp, flash usage is proper and colors are nice. Absolutely excellent shot! Bravo!

Hi Luciano,
It's always fascinating to post a "firsttimer" on TN - it's never an exception. :-) Photography-wise, this image is technically good, but not such spectacular due to the butterfly's pose. With fully open wings the photo might be a stunner, with the visible one it's simply just good.

Hi Satirtha,
Beautiful composition, the way how you composed the bee-eater and the branch into the frame is fantastic, and the bird's pose is very spectacular. Great lights as well, and conspicuous colors. On the other (negative) side, the image is too noisy and the bird could be a little sharper - I demonstrate my idea with a workshop.

Hi Marius,
Beautiful atmosphere with the lonely pelican in the morning lights. Fantastic pose and eye-pleasing composition, lovely white balance. The only thing I'd like to change is the foreground - I find the out of focus part at the bottom a little too much. Otherwise a mesmerising shot.

Hi Musa,
I shouldn't call the scene scary, rather spectacular. Beautiful exposure, the image's completely noise free, eventhough you used very high ISO. Even the stars/planets are well visible, and the contrast between the rocks and the blue sky is awesome. Lovely photo with powerful visual impact, and only with the lack of sharpness on the negative side.

Hi Luciano,
Friendly and wonderful moth, and if I remember well, I already saw it in your gallery previously. It doesn't matter, it's lovely and spectacular on each photo. Great flash usage, colors and sharpness, perfect exposure.

Hi Ron,
Nicely composed photo, beautiful pose of the warbler. Great depth of field as well. Probably some changes with lights, for example adding a little more contrast might make the photo even more powerful.

Ciao Silvio,
Fantastic PoV, colors and lights. Lovely photo, and the butterfly's tack sharp. Probably, if you use a more narrow aperture and focus on the flower, the plant might be sharper as well. Anyway, the visual impact's powerful even with the out of focus flower.

Hi Sri,
In spite of the difficult light conditions, this is a beautiful photo. I shouldn't call the lights terrible, they were just suitable for this image, and the white balance iss lovely. Pleasant composition and exceptional depth of field as well. Fantastic shot.

Hi Ana,
Beautiful mountain view. The tree on the pic is the European larch (Larix decidua), a deciduous conifer.

Hi Luciano again,
This photo is better than the 2nd in the series, the squirrel's much bigger and is more in focus in the frame, so the blown out patches in the background are not so emphasised. Funny pose and great eye contact. Thanks very much for this short series, I enjoyed it. Good luck for the continuation!

Hi Luciano,
The squirrel themselves is beautifully captured, however, the visual impact is a bit distracted by the big blown out spots and the huge foreground. Probably, another camera angle (semi-vertical composition) and tighter crop might have helped? But the story is great, nonetheless.

Hi Sri,
Perfect capture as always from you. Excellent colors, fantastic textures on the plumage and the hornbill's pose is really funny. Like someone just got a heavy backpack and is trying to balance the load. :-) Conspicuous image, congratulations!

Hi Ron,
Light conditions were difficult, but this photo is really spectacular, the sunbird is like a little jewel in front of the light blue background. You managed to use the available lights very well, great details on both the dark and the bright parts. Very pleasant, clear composition + nice sunny colors were also parts of the game. This is an outstanding capture.

Hi Ron,
Not your best photo in my opinion, the grassblades are distracting compositional elements, and the whole pic seems oversharpened to me. In Ireland, where I live, I mostly see foxes hit on the roadside.

Hi Lucja,
The species on the photo is the Sulphur Tuft (Hypholoma fasciculare (Huds.) P. Kumm.), which is a parasitic species (changing to saprobic lifestyle when the wood is dead), so I'd hardly call the subject as "symbiosis". But the photo's lovely, indeed.

Hi Tom,
Beautifully composed photo of an animal rarely seen here on TN. Perfect exposure control and contrast, I love those photos made with flash where the subject is correctly, but the background is underexposed - this is the case here, too, and the contrast is very elegant. Great pose and eye contact as well. Absolutely a shot to be proud of. Bravo.
