Hallo Sudeshna
Indeed an impressive kingfisher. The colours are vivid and well exposed, with good sharpness and great composition. I like the point of view as well as the tree stump as part of your background. Well done and thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Sudeshna,
The technical details are OK, but the composition's too centered. Usually we leave more space in the direction of the model's look than 50-50, a compo's much more pleasant that way (have a look on rule of thirds, please). And please write meaningful notes. Is it so difficult? About the species, about the photo... Probably you forgot you agreed with the Terms of Service when you registered to the site, so please read this quote: "Photographer's Notes: All photos must contain a note of a minimum of 40 characters in order to be uploaded. Only meaningful notes will be considered, so please do not try to get around the issue by posting nonsense such as "fhgdfhd rthdfjgbnd fgjkfk". The following other nonsensical notes will also be deemed inappropriate: using your camera description / exif data as a note, clicking the space bar until you have reached 40 characters, repeating the same words or partial phrases over and over e.g.: "this is a flower this is a flower" and finally: notes that merely describe the obvious, e.g. : " this is a man standing in front of a church". Notes that fit any of the above criteria may be subject to deletion by our moderators". This is a site with an aim of learning from nature through photography. Not facebook or flickr.
I wish you & your loved ones happy and prosperous new year, kind regards, László
