Oh, I love your birds so much and this one is superb. Your tones in black and white and your perfect detail and light are so wonderful. It's a lovely gesture, even if just grooming, that's full of humility and beauty. Wonderful.

Amazing in mono, creating a very personal, intimate portrait that works so superbly. The light on the eye and detail in the plumage draw the eyes in to what is a beautiful photograph. The subtle tones allowing the feet and underbelly to melt into the frame are sublime.
As an aside Pavan, a great result for me as my much loved 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 Tamron is apparently fine to use with the D700, so I will be able to keep it and start looking for a Nikkor 50mm and either 80 or 85mm to begin with (once I've bought the camera of course).
3 Jun 2010 12:45pm
@SOUL AFLAME: Thank you Paul:)
I would suggest you go with the 50mm & 85mm f 1.8 Nikkors..These are both fine lenses and very easy on the purse! Looking forward to & awaiting your work with the D700! Go get it bro!
This close in shot of the grommer is very successful with its deep tones that are so subtly divided. Excellent work technically and also arranged very nicely in the frame. Top level work!
3 Jun 2010 1:28pm
Wonderful, it looks like I can stretch my hand out and touch... Tectures are great.

@Tony: Thank you Tony. As I cannot read Cantonese I shall presume your comment is positive! However, henceforth I would appreciate the use of English if you please:)
The most charming elegance! So beautifully seen and portrayed!!! What a fine art you've turned this sight, Pavan!
3 Jun 2010 3:14pm
Aww... this is outstanding, Pavan.. look at all the fine and delicate details of her feathers! The light is wonderful and B&W works so very well... (well... when does it not? ;) ) Greetings!

Hi Pavan, allow me to translate what Tony from shanghai said. He mean: It is meaningful and very beautiful.
And I would said the picture has a very soft and gentle mood. I love it!
