Hi Laurent
Beautiful sharp kingfisher! Perfect shot. Great colors - vivid bird vs peaceful background. Background is very good homogenous, not disturbing. Also good diagonal composition and nice tight (but not too tight) crop. I like it very much

Hello Laurent,
How nice to see you posting again and what a superb shot of a lovely Kingfisher!! Amazing details and lovely colours in this fine close-up. I love the pose too and the fine gren background. Very well done!
TFS and best wishes, Ulla

Excellent portait, Laurent.
Obviously you didn't have the slightest problems with the details.
Surprisingly the depth of field is perfect. Surprisingly 'cause this is really a close encounter and I don't believe this is a big crop.
Well done!
Thanks for sharing

Bonjour Laurent,
What a great way to take a portrait of a Kingfisher: a floating blind!
This dorsal view showing the wonderful blue back plumage is fantastic and the pose with the head turned makes the image great, especially with this technical high standard
Bravo!
Bon weekend,
Ivan

Excellent ! Quel bol tu as eu... Mais aussi quel talent ! La photo de mes rêves...

Hello Laurent,

This is one of the best photos I have seen with this bird. There is a n outstanding sharpness in your image showing even the fines details of the feathers. You have used excelently the light rendering so beautifull, natural looking colors. The blurry background makes a fine contrast enhacing the feeling of sharpnes.

Congratulations,
Cristian

salut Laurent

Bonjour Laurent,
Tes présentations sont rares, mais toujours de grande qualité. Quelle netteté, c'est absolument parfait. J'aime aussi l'attitude attentive de l'oiseau ainsi que le bel arrière-plan neutre, mettant en relief la beauté du martin-pêcheur.
Un grand merci

Hi Laurent

Nice to see you back here my friend and especially with such a fantastic capture!
I see you have a new and terrific lens ad you seem to use it perfectly!
The close-up level here is impressive and the details you managed to retain here are amazing. Further more, the exposure is spot-on, the colors are outstanding and the DOF is simply gorgeous for such a shot, keeping the kingfisher is excellent focus while giving you an exceptional BG, too.
All-in-all: a masterpiece!

BRAVO and TFS

Bonjour Laurent,
What beauty you have captured here Laurent, the plumage detail is incredible as is the colors. Amazing piece of work, thank you for sharing.

Witaj Laurent,
Piekne zdjecie. Ciasny kadr dziala tu na +. Ostre piora, oko i inne szczgoly. Cudowne kolory.
Gratuluje i pozdrawiam - Roma

Superbe. Les couleurs sont éclatantes, et le piqué est de qualité. J'apprécie beaucoup ce cadsrage serré aussi. Je n'ai jamais fait d'affût flottant, ça doit demander encore plus de volonté que pour un affût classique. En tout cas, les efforts sont bien récompensés!
Matt

Beautiful bird Laurent, one of the best Kingfisher closeups I've seen in awhile.
I see nothing I would change..
Excellent!

Hi, dear Laurent.
I do not believe my own eyes. How I could miss your last pictures. This species is my favorite. I have never seen it in real life and like to watch its shots. Yours is outstanding in all respects. Terrific colours, tremendous sharpness and details of the image, blameless framing and composition. My congratulations. Bravo.
Alexei.

Ciao Laurent,
grazie del tuo commento e dei tuoi suggerimenti; bellissima cattura di martin pescatore, un uccello che ho fotografato molto anch'io in quest'ultimo anno, eccellenti POV e composizione per mostrare perfettamente e con ottima definizione le caratteristiche di questo bellissimo uccello, magnifici i colori e stupendo OOF BG.
TFS.
Maurizio

Bonjour Laurent,
C'est une prise parfaite! Wow! Tout est excellent, que dire de plus? Les couleurs, les détails, la proximité, l'exposition et le fond vert uni, un petit chef-d'oeuvre! Je ne pas comment tu fais pour les approcher si près. J'en ai vu un juste une fois dans le parc du Mont-Tremblant et il était impossible de l'approcher. Bravo!
Claudine

Excellent detail of shot!
Very Very good !!!
Ciao Vanni

Bonjour Laurent,
Superbe cette photo de ce martin-pêcheur ! J'en ai souvent vu, mais il est bien difficile de les prendre en photo.
Il est très net, et on distingue parfaitement son joli plumage.
Bravo.
