[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Another White-Throated Kingfisher from my archives. I think she needs no further introduction :)
This one shows a better view of the distinctive white throat from this angle. Post processed in Photoshop, RAW to JPG full frame capture.

What a shot, Ken! Perfectly exposed for the bill and the neck, great composition, sharp detail and excellent background (lack of distraction, whatsoever). Did I mention the interesting subject? Honestly, I don't think it's what matters the most in this image. Great job! Congratulations,

Excellent !


The bird looks like it could fly straight off my screen. Perfect focus, color and lighting, the diagonal branch is very nice, his pose, beak, eye, every detail so clear and sharp, amazing work, well done.

Hi Ken,
excellent shot with perfect colours and details in a beautiful soft light against a soft distant background of shaded green. The diagonal branch makes the image look very dynamic. Very lively, and elegant.
With thanks, and best regards,
