Ciao John, splendid bird in great fly on a wonderful blue sky, splendid colors, excellent sharpness and fine details, very well done, ciao Silvio
Hi John,this isn't truely your best pic but i know how isn't easy to take a in-flight bird,the sharpness is poor and there is a lot of noise in the sky...no problem beacuse is a great scoop to take a bird like that in flight...thanks for share,have a nice day,Luciano
Good result taking into account the distance and light conditions. I think you used all the available optical power! ... use the TV mode is right, that allowed you to shoot at 1/2000s and achieve a good effect. I see a lot of noise in the blue sky. I guess that is normal with large increases. With a bit of PP can be eliminated (see WS).
maybe a little bit oversharpened but an excellent in-flight
shot of the stork with his dynamic flight, with very fine POV
and the way it is framed with the very good space in-front, TFS

I find these shots very diffcult to get - so well done! I have lots that I treasure just because they are my only record of the species - and this is much better than any of those! :)

showed thestork well with it's details, I see the only issue nosie has been ws'd already. Besides that it's very nice, well composed and exposed. TFS!
I like your picture for its subject and the superb dynamism emanating from the bird's flight. The position of the wings is magnificent and the picture could be used for an aerodynamic study.
Unfortunately, the picture lacks of quality. There's so much noise and it also isn't sharp. I don't know if this is the result of the postprocessing or if you have cropped the picture too much.
Your gallery proves that you are a good photographer and I hope you will find out what the problem was.
The POV, composition, wing position and contrasting blue sky would have made this good shot excellent if it weren't for the noise.
So I have taken it to the WS, if you approve and made what I think are some improvements.
Thanks and kind regards,

Hello dear John,
I liked more your worshop version because the noise reduction, but the best in this image is your great composition. Congratulations.

Interesante trabajo de un ave que aquí por suerte tenemos en abundancia. Procesado original y diferente de la toma.

I'm glad to see your post here in TN. This is such a wonderful capture in flight. The spreading wings are just fabulous in perfect framing. Really nice against the spotless blue sky.
TFS and best regards,

I tend to agree with Markus on this picture, John. Though the shot is daring, there is a little bit of over-sharpening. Still, it is a good image and shows the Stork in a glorious pose in flight.
Thanks and all the best.

Wonderful minimalistic composition, but I'm afraid Heaven (Markus) is right about the lacking sharpness. Yes, the reason must be the significant cropping. A pity, because otherwise a great photo.
Have a nice Sunday, friendly regards, László

A great action moment well captured, with nice sharp image and well contrasted against the BG.
I like the crop and posture.
Yes, the quality is poor but the composition is strong.
to get around this, i did a workshop

Hi John, Well timed capture of this elegant bird in flight. I attempted to reduce the noise a little using noiseware program. TFS. Murray.

The way you placed the bird in the frame is making him to look bigger. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the stork. There is a good contrast between the colors of the bird and the colors of the sky. Have a nice day.
