Hello Michael

Wow...... nice shot! Very good POV. Great depth of colour. Clarity and sharpness are spot on. Love that reflection! Excellent work. Thanks.

Hello Michael, pose is excellent, great work. Very good sharpness, details, colours and composition. Thanks for sharing.

Unbelievable piece of luck Michael! Nothing to say except my admiration for such a successful shot. And besides that, the light shows it was a wonderful sunny day. Congratulations.
Just a nit, the frame is too heavy IMHO.

Sharpness and exposure are good. Composition is simple but well balanced. I love the unperfect simetry that proves it's not a photo trick. The low light gives warm colors. DOF is a little shallow, but considering aperture and shutter speed used, you are a lot better with shallow DOF than with mouvement blur.
It a very nice and original picture. TFS.

Hi Michael,
Another busy day/early morning rush.
Well worth the big green smiley.
Thanks for posting.

Beautiful shot, crop, composition and lighting are just about perfect on this.

Super reflection. Great in-flight shot, Nice and sharp, well done.
