    Nice presentation in B&W. If the wings were not obscured it have been perfect. Well done.

    C'mon Man! You've got tons of snowy inspiration out there. This shot proves it! If you need someone to carry your gear while slogging though the snow, you know where to find me!
  • tv writer PRO 6y

    Wow, this is gorgeous... it has such a wonderfully nostalgic look to it, like it's from an old B&W classic film from the 40's.

    Lovely work.

    I'm really liking this photo but having a hard time explaining why. So I'll let the other comments suffice and leave it at that. Just don't hold it against me : )

    Great shot Michael! Poor bird looks so cold. Hope you have a Merry Christmas, too.

    Love the abstract framing of this sparrow. B&W was the perfect choice.
    Enjoy your white christmas!
  • CJ PRO 6y

    Love this Michael, Merry Christmas my friend.
  • Preston Hone 6y

    The B&W conversion is perfect for this shot and adds a wonderful mood to the photo.The twisted branches and smooth bokeh make this perfect!
    I hope you have a very Merry Christmas and look forward to more spectacular images from you in the comming year!

    This is lovely! I like the little dusting of snow on his head...the twisty branches...the whole thing pulls together very nicely.
