Hi Yoram,
Good job on this one. This wings effect is simply fantastic, i'm imagining it flapping its wings violently!
Good job!

Great moment caught, Yoram.
He looks like he is almost falling backwards.
Wonderful action pose.
The details are very sharp on the body,
and the blur of the wings intimate his frantic moves.
Very pretty colors and fantastic composition.
Wonderful shot.
TFS. ; )

Hello Yoram,
Great shot. You have captured the landing well.Good colours and details. Nice background and especially loved those water droplets . It must 've taken a dip in the water, right? Very good composition.TFS, Smitha.

Hi Yoram,
The pose is wonderful. Your POV, colors, contrast and composition is very good. TFS

Bonjour Yoram
C'est un spectaculaire cliché de ce martin-pêhcuer que tu as réussi.Le flou sur les ailes contraste vec la netteté du corps et nous montre le mouvement de l'oiseau. Les quelques gouttes que l'on observe réhaussent encore l'intérêt de cette image d'un retour de pêche. Bravo.

Great Dof and BG composition. I think he is trying to get use to flying as i believe this is a juvenile kingfisher.

very beautiful
a great moment
great composition with the wings and colors are son nice !!!!!!

Hello Yoram , very good action photo , colors super , TFS.

Hi Yoram,
Stuning action shot!
I like so much the movement of the wings frozen here.
Great timing and quicknes to shot at the right moment.
It's very good the exposition and the light here.
I like also the fallen waterdrops from their beak.
The compostion made is very good, the same then the soft and neutral background got.
Congratulations and thanks for share it.
My best regards,

Spectacular pictures. Bravo. Very good composition, unusualy posture of this Kingfisher. Nice work. Best regards. Cezar T.
