Suggester said; ""Rougegorge sous la neige" comes from a long line of splendid work from a new kid on the block, *PierreRodriguez, who is a young Nature photographer and also a new deviant. What I like the most about this photo is the mood it sets up right from start with a scenery of Winter. We can feel the cold from the tones and then we notice that robin and it gets even worse. A sense of empathy for that poor bird amidst such harsh conditions takes in and then... you notice the bokeh and how there is the same palette of colours in the background and in the robin's chest - almost as if it was on purpose. After all of this you only have one choice: to fav it and peruse the rest of Pierre's gallery." Rougegorge sous la neige by *PierreRodriguez

Le rougegorge sous la neige ... ce point de vue sentimental et le titre pour une photo, mais la critique elle-même est dire la même chose. L'hiver même qui a venu et reparti juste devant le pauvre rougegorge cher rappelle aux gens du mythe grec d'une jeune fille malheureuse nommée Perséphone, en fait, si possible, les gens supposent que le rougegorge très solitaire est une femme et ils le nom de son après Perséphone. La touche de couleur sur la poitrine avec la posture accroché sur la branche solitaire dans un fond gris fade contraire semble éphémère, mais de montage. Le point de vue très faible, mais sélective peuvent avoir les gens demandent, "comment dis-tu?"

Right now (beginning of june) Berlin is under a constant grey sheet of clouds, raining down drizzle. When I saw this shot of a robin leaning against the cold wind and drifting snow, I immediately was reminded of how aweful this year's winter has been.

I love the splash of colour on its breast, the posture - clinging with all its might on the one lonely branch in an otherwise bland greyness. There is a bit of colour (similar to the one on the robin's breast) in the bokeh background, which works well but is not obtrusive.

I think it works really well that you did not go for a shutter speed SO high that the snow flakes would be caught perfectly still: the slight motion blur captures the wind and the harshness of winter.

It's not a shot that I have never seen before; it's not a shot of an incredibly exotic bird; still, I really love the way you captured the whole mood and sincerely hope that this little fellow got some corn and a place to sleep at the end of that day. <img src="…" width="15" height="15" alt=":)" title=":) (Smile)"/>

I wouldn't say this is more of a critique as it is a praise. Critiques are there to have the artist's work be broken down, to have it's flaws exposed, so that he/she may get better at what they do. And for this, I think this critique is very unfair to the artist. If you want to spend all that time praising it, perhaps you should just leave a comment instead, next time.

Agreed. Whilst I won't dispute the rating for Technique (I'm no photographer), I will say that Vision, Impact and Originality -- as well as the overall rating -- are a little low.

Frankly, the impact of seeing such a frail little bird clinging to an equally frail branch with a winter storm brewing in the background is astonishing. It's not so much the raw facts of the photo, the real impact lies in the bird's expression -- he's rather 'fluffy', as if gathering a little warmth while he bravely scans over the area, nearly ready for his next perilous flight.

Thank you very much for your critique. It's very interesting to know what the people think and did the people understand that I felt.

I think this this little fellow got a place to sleep, the storm stayed not for long.

Thank you much and sorry for my english :D
