      This week, the POTW goes to Rob Eyers for his perfectly executed portrait of a Ruby Throated Hummingbird.

      Rob stated that he felt the image had issues. I don’t see any. Well. perhaps a little digital noise, but who cares when you’re admiring such a beautiful photograph!

      In my mind, this shot has perfectly placed focus, excellent composition, a nice range of tones, and color saturation levels that match reality.

      It is perfect how Rob positioned himself to capture the bird framed by the highlights on the left and the feeder on the right.

      It is also impressive that Rob saw to it to keep the red of the feeder subdued in saturation and vibrance as relates to the red areas of the bird. This creates a strong subject with perfect visual weight.

      Congratulations to Rob!

      I also would encourage you to visit the Weekend Challenge #447 “Made of Glass” as there are some excellent shots displayed there.

      Wonderful shot Rob! Don’t think i ever saw a hummingbird without his wings going 100 miles an hour.
