Oh ya its a six! It has all the bells and whistles for top rating art. Wonderful colors, eye shot, details, clean and clear! Cute to the max! Love that branch there with this all white background sure makes this pop! Supreme Mike, love it.

    Thank you very much. The plain background is actually the lake I live on. When the weather is overcast like this it registers almost white. The flat light also gives me shadowless details and very nice colors that do not dazzle the viewer. Very glad you like this one. Thanks again.

She gave you her best side Mike!
Very nice capture of this pretty lady. You have sharp focus on her head, great eye clarity with fine light reflections and superb colors and details.
Nice work ;)

I like the contrast between the fluffy feathers and the rotten branch.

Sharply focused.
Fine features & textures.
EyeCATching avian portrait.

Plain backdrop pops out cute cardinal nicely.

Great framing.
Thanks for sharing...

    Thank you very much. The background is actually the lake on which I live. When it is overcast it records practically white. The overcast day gave me flat light that produces nice shadowless detail and great colors. Very glad you like this one. Thanks again.

    Thank you very much. The background is the out of focus lake that I live on. On a cloudy day like this it records almost white. The soft light from that kind of day gives shadowless detail and very nice colors. It does lack the pop you get from brighter light but you can't have everything. Glad you like this one. Thanks again.

    My pleasure! Perfect even without the pop!
Comment from Robert Plain


Great closeup of this female cardinal. Good composition with the single branch at a slight angle. Really good detail in feathers and eye. Really natural color as well. Super job, Mike.

Mike,
A beautiful picture of this female Cardinal bird perched on the dead branch head turned so she cat get a better look at you & possibly her own reflection in your lens. Her crest feathers raised giving her a surprised look. Beautiful composition framing and lighting taken with superb camera techniques and sharp focus.
