      Amazing clarity and sharpness. Punchy colours too! The combination of Bigma's reach and good light conditions produces amazing results

          Very very nice set Tord. I like the Goldcrest, but my favorite has to be the Jackdaw. Thats a magnificent shot! The gnarly mossy old ?Apple tree makes a perfect background. I would be inclinded to cover that bright spot where the twig at the left has been sawn off, to remove signs of human presens. I consider cloning as cheating and will not do so 99% of the times, but this one would bother me, maybe ...

            A great set, I think starlings are under rated. Their plumage is amazing.

              Jackdaw for me too, but all are very good, Tordan.
              The picture tells the story, great when you have a bad memory.DW.
