[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note [Spanish]
Greetings friends of TN, thanks for your congratulations by my first 100 Photos. As soon as it has a little time you will thank for it personally. I want to raise a picture to you of a Common Kingfisher (Alcedo atthis), that put for me does a little. It was placed by surprise to two meters of hide, and I could do east picture to him. The light was not very good, because it was storm cloud, I have trimmed a little to the sides to take advantage of the size the photo. I hope that you like.

nice shot and comp.

Hola Jose,
superb close up shot.
sharp,great details, and very neat image.


Hi Jose,
Wonderful close up photo, simply great colours and the detail and sharpness of the plumage is spot on. If I had to pick, I would say it is unfortunate the beak is slightly out of focus but that really doesn't take anything away from a very good photo.

If the light was not perfect, at least the exposure and the result are.
Next time a bit closer? ;-)

Wow! A fantastic photo of a Kingfisher. Thanks for sharing.
