p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Garibaldi (Chrysomus ruficapillus)


This one is called "Garibaldi" here in Brazil, and google tells me it's called "Chestnut-capped Blackbird" in english.

I don't usually like birds on barbed wire, but I can't resist this one because of the similarity between his feet and the spikes on the barbed wire.

So: what do you think? It's a little blurred due to the slow shutter speed, you can tell at 100% but I don't think it's a problem at this image size, is it?. Does the spider web distract? Should I reduce some of the 'glare' on his back? Should I increase exposure on the dark region of his chest?



D3100, AF-S 300mm + TC 14EII, 420mm f/5.6, ISO 400, 1/500 sec.

The capture is well done. Clearly well exposed; almost like the bird wanted to pose for you. Thanks for sharing.

Black birds are really difficult to expose, nice job. The barb wire is what you got and sometimes the bird just makes it worthwhile.

I would clone out the web, easy enough to do but its a small nit.

Very nice.
The barbed wire doesnt bother me.
Maybe a bit more shadow detail on the chest.
Background colors are beautiful and compliment the bird's reddish brown crown.
Clone out the web.
Still prefer more standard crops, but.....

Thanks for the feedback lylejk, Ben and Scott.

Cloned out the web, and tried to get some more shadow detail on the bird's chest (however I didn't have much detail there in my RAW file it seems).

Sorry Scott, but can't overcome my 16:9 addiction for this one
