One last (probably) hummer for the season

What technical feedback would you like if any?


What artistic feedback would you like if any?

I liked the hummingbird bush flower for this image. This nice female rufous came in for a few quick checks of the flower.

A real beauty, Keith. Nice details and light, and the background is really complimentary. To me the lighting looks very natural. You have got those flashes set up right. :+1::+1:

Another incredible Hummingbird shot ! Love the composition with the diagonal flower and bird. The whites on the flower are a tit bright on my screen. No nits otherwise, only respect ! Cheers, Hans

Excellent detail and pose. I like the composition you chose with diagonal flower head bisecting the frame

A beautiful pose on the hummer with superb lighting and detail, Keith. I’m not familiar with this flower-is it local?

@Dennis_Plank. Yes the flower is a local flower. We have some that are white and some that are purple.

Sweet shot Keith-everything is excellent.

The diagonal bird and plant make this comp work quite well. If possible, I might cit the highlights on the plant a tad. But that is a rather minor issue. Needs to be seen large.
