Hello Joy,
Nice photo of this kingfisher in beautiful natural colours, despite the difficult light conditions. Good sharpness and a fine choice of composition.

Hello Joydeb,
Hope you are well. Full marks for this excellent shot! Thanks a lot for sharing dear, take care,
warm regards/Abid

Hello Joy

The catch-light render the photo more beautiful,
fine POV with appropriate vertical framing,
excellent details of the plumage, TFS


Hi Joy,
Composition-wise excellent, very spectaculr photo. The kingfisher isn't so sharp as on your other images I commented recently (probably you overcropped the original photo as some pixelation are detectable on the plumage, too), but colors are natural, and as told, compo / crop is gorgeous.
Kind regards, László
