Hi Vishal,

Very nice pose! You handled the technical aspects well considering the time of day. You were really lucky to get this close. Well done.

Hi Manyee,

Good exposure, I find wet subjects in bright light difficult. Very nice details because of the sharpness of the pic. I played a bit with the composition in the workshop.

Hi Manyee,

Well done with this sharp and well composed shot. It is always difficult to expose a black bird properly and you definately did justice to this one.

Hi Jay,

An interesting subject well presented. With temp reaching mid thirties (c) in South Africa, it is difficult to imaging the cold you are experiencing. It is even nice thinking about cooling down like this, although you probably would swop places with me.

Well done with this shot and thank you for sharing.

Totsiens.

Hi Jay,

I like your composition. The point you are making is about the ocean and not the clubhouse or shore. The horizon is close to the 3rd and is horizontal in spite of the illusion created by the rest of the shore line.

Nice, pleasing shot, but a polarizing filter would have assisted with the glare. It would also have enhanced the blue sky ;)

PS Been a bit busy lately, will try to catch up.

Hi Jay,

So you did it. Like most of the others I also thought you bit off more than you could chew with representing air. You certainly proved us all wrong. Very well done with this great shot.

Hi Paul,

Excellent pose and sharp capture. You did well with the black and white bird against a gloomy sky. Well done.

Hi Paul,

What a brilliantly coloured bird. Agree with you that I would fill my card with shots of this beauty. Good composition and sharpness. High ISO probably caused the noise in the BG. Did a workshop and removed the noise with NeatImage (as suggested) and it worked well.

Hi Silke,

Interesting subject and presented well. The leaf at the bottom is slightly distracting. You handled the light very well.

Hi Bengt,

Amazing sharpness and DOF. This colourful little bird looks like it was begging to be photographed. Well done.
