Superb shot here Trudy ! Great capture.note: I would crop off the orange in the lower right corner. Would give the photo more effect. But, that’s just me ! lol !
Thanks Ralph…. I did crop without it and thought it gave it more purpose showing where it was headed, so I left it in…still thinking…LOL…
Okay Ralph, I took your suggestion and took it out but left one pic with it in…we’ll see now….LOL
Absolutely brilliant!! I think either version works just as well as each other :-)
Thank you Rachel, I think I agree with you… just depends on the viewer I guess….we’ll see…thanks again….
OMG…. now thats just brilliant Trudy……WOOOOOW!!!
Thank you dear Lyn, I’m working hard on hummingbird captures this week, that’s my plan… so keep a look out…LOL
That is just amazing, what a beautiful capture – very well done!! :D
Thank you Jacky bunches and bunches….
The image is awesome both ways, I almost like the feeder better, the composition lends itself more to this, but what I know? lol art is subjective….
Thank you Diane….I keep looking at it trying to figure out which way I like better and like you, I’m not sure either…thanks so much.
This is a fantastic capture!!! Either way, it’s just beautiful and an instant fave.
Thank you Nori and for the fav… keep a watch I’m working on capturing hummingbirds this week…I have a million but want to display the unique ones…LoL
I like the idea of the feeder too. But, I did not know it was a feeder. We only see a small part. I am not criticizing your photo either ! I’ve got it in my favorites !It’s a great, great shot !
No Ralph, I so much appreciated your taking a moment to give your opinion, and I think I agree…. I’m working on hummingbirds this week…trying to get that perfect shot/angle…thanks for the fav too…
Wow…what a great capture! I am leaning toward the photo without the feeder. I like the simplicity of the bird in flight…the focus is completely on the bird, everything else is negative space. I LOVE the top photo:) It’s as if the bird is flying straight toward you…you are one with the bird…lol!
After looking at it, I’m with you too….that little spot of red after viewing it took your eyes off the hummer….thank you so much for your viewpoint, much appreciated…;-)
AWESOME capture Trudy! I love the detail on his head! You must have been excited! Did he hit you?
Safe and sound Kim…..thanks much….
So I glance at this and flash a second look, with the exclamation “oh wow” popping out of my mouth. Di
