Hi Marcin.
Excellent action shot. The captured pose (moment) and selected POV are great. You managed to reflect the colour tones of the bird precisely. Exposure and saturation are really perfect. I like your cropping so much too. Well done and TFS.

hi marcin!
great capture on this beauty!
good sharpness with nice pose and
well composed!

Hi Marcin,

Thanks for the kind and gracious critique on my last picture. I’m glad you liked it.

This is a good picture of something difficult. You managed to capture this flying bird really well.

Well done and TFS.

Great in-flight capture. I love the pose. Lovely composition



Hello Marcin,
This is a very good capture of this in-flight gull which looks very different from the one we have in my country. Exposure, colors, pose and BG are so nice. He has a funny face that seems being out of a surprise’s box :) This blue sky is very nice. Well done!

Bonjour Marcin

Félicitations pour la qualité d'image et le bel éclairage.

Merci et au revoir...JP.

Unusual discord of feathers makes for quite a dynamic flight shot.
