sure better

Great picture indeed.
Perfect clarity and colors.
Best regards.Alin.

Stunning kingfisher action shot. 1/1600 seems like a good move to me. I love the motion of the shot and the blurred background. This shot would have been execelent on it's own on that branch. But you topped it off with the fish.

Hi Adrian,
A stunning moment captured with superb control over the exposure. I can fully understand why this is one of your fav's. You mentioned you added background to the photo. Do you mean that the original was a cropped version or did you clone background into the original to come to this version?

P.S. It's no crime to give critique as well.

Hi Adrian,
that's one of the best kingfisher-shots I've ever seen, applause - great work my friend. We realy can see the action, I'm amazed, thank you very much for sharing it with us

Hello Adrian.

This is the same picture as you uploaded yesterday. Yesterday was a little cropped i think, so see for my reaction of your yesterday's post.
