Hallo Lesley,

You did really well here. A superb shot. No nits for me. Well done


Hi lesley ! This is a wonderful shot ! Excellent details, colors and composition. This blue sky is a fantastic BG for your bird. I love the attitude of the Kite, wings wide open and looking down at you. Very werll done !

Hi Lesley,
Great detail, colors, and you caught some good light across the kite..Very nice POV and pose seen.
Very nice and Thank You!

Magnifique instantané. Bon réflexe !
Manifestement il y a un lièvre qui va passer un mauvais quart d'heure.

Hi Lesley,
Wow, this is superb. Don't know how I managed to miss this one. A great capture, the light on the Kite is just right (sounds like something from Dr Seuss :-)) Excellent colours. Just a little soft on detail but a sharpen with USM will help that. Nicely framed/cropped, great shot. Looks like you've got the hang of this lark.
Have a good weekend

Hello, Lesley.
Great shot. Interesting moment, excellent composition, amazing colours. TFS. But what do you think about this copy?
My best regards,

The only little nit is that the wing above touchs the frame. Too tight a crop. if it was like this in the original, I would suggest to add a 2 mm line of blue sky on the top.
Excellent capture.
