Out of The water
Nice note, and a long way from the first TE one. Glad if we can help one another on this site. I have only one decent picture of this guy, and none in flight, This is very nice.

You must be about as fast as Spidermand to have taken this. Incredible moment and timing. Very good note as well

This bird captured in flight is becoming your signature shot. And I can see why. You get it spot on every time. Another nice one. Thanx for sharing. Detailed note too.

Great shot, Elroyie, and I think both versions are interesting in their own right. The one you posted really shines in detail of the successful fisher and the water droplets are nicely rendered. The full frame, like Paul wrote, has the added interest of additionally showing the "diving area", but also less detail of the bird. So bottom line I agree with your choice of posting this one, congratulations for catching this moment.
Good shot! I'm very impressed with your speed, I've never managed to capture a kingfisher flying yet, so I'm impressed. My only criticism is that there appears to be some chromatic aberration on the high contrast areas of the kingfisher - try selectively reducing saturation -70 red/magenta on the kingfisher himself and see what you think! Very well captured :-D

Precisa y oportuna captura Elroyie.
Hermosa composicion con muy buena nitidez, colorido y atinada profundidad.
Las gotas en suspension la agregan un detalle más de calidad.
precise and opportune capture Elroyie.
Beautiful composition with very good clearness, colorful and accurate depth.
The drops in suspension add a quality detail more.

what a great capture Elroyie,
Fantastic. I have ever try it, but the bird was so fast that it flying out of the photo.Very good job
Brilliant capture, they are so so quick i'm so impressed you got this. Great detail and the water drops are really good.
Elroyie, now that I have seen the full frame I think I prefer it, the splash where the bird took the prey definitely adds to the picture.

Elroyie, another great action shot from you. Nice composition to show us this great moment. I like the bg too.
P.S.: I included this photo (and others taken by you) in a theme I created recently. I hope you don't mind.
