  • Rob Roy

    Rob Roy (Deleted) gave props (5 Oct 2008):

    Several things give this unique appeal, but the most important IMO is “balance”—of both color and form. The birds’ positions are directly opposite and the 2 are equidistant from all 4 sides of the picture [with the birdhouse serving as a side or “frame”]. Three colors- shades of orange, black and white- can be seen in all 3 components: the birds, the background and the snow-capped feeder. The birds have been “frozen” by a fast shutter, revealing the beauty of their wings. We see even their feet in sharp detail, nicely positioned. Not difficult to see why this wonderful image is “HOT”! Kudos, Ted!!!
