Hi Toni!
Wonderful photo! I love its coiffure and bill :-)
It looks superb on blue water!

Very good title and very funny picture, very good composition, there is a little problem with the exposure on the white tones on the chest, it is in over exposure.

Antonio, Very nice profile shot with great sharpness & detail on the head where it counts..Fun title - Well done!

Interesting hair cut Antonio. - Very nice capture and very good composition - I likem the tight croppping. Great colour and very good dof to show the details in the plumage. I looks like a slight overexposure in the white area on the neck but it is a minor thing here. All over a very nice capture in great composition.

A little more information in the note would be very nice.

Voilà une espèce très branchée (comme dirai les jeunes) Un petit peu de gel et il est près pour la photo. Nouvelle mode pour les canards!

Wow, that's what I call a bad hair day - unless, of course, this is the particular look you're after.. ;-))
Very good sharpness and just a hint of over exposure on the white of the chest.

An excelent capture and well done on this composition.
That reflection in the water would have been a great asset to the image if you would have composed it in.


Toni, great portrait, and a fitting title for this photo. I really like the close tight crop. Good Job!

Very nice picture Antonio.
This female looks very nice with her punk style.
Nice colours, composition and details. juat a little over exposure.

Hi Toni, excellent shot here of this punk bird. It looks like it is wearing a polo sweater and swimming so fast its feathers are blowing out the back. So amusing. Good shot, very well done.

Belle prise de ce Harle, je n'arrive pas à les photographier, ils sont trop farouche en me voyant ils s'envolent. Beaucoup de détails, Félicitations.

Nice shot Antonio,
good sharp details and nice colours. great composition. If the whites weren't Overexposed it would have been fantastic.
Thanks for posting

Indeed, Antonio, a punk - with excellent sharpness and within a great composition. I also like the background, and the bird seems rather funny to me.

This is a great shot of a female goosander (or common merganser in North America). Sharp details on the head, good light. Maybe a bit more room on the top would give more space for that wonderful punk hair-do. Apparently it is the only merganser in North America in which the female is crested and the male is not. Interesting. Thanks for sharing.

Wow! Excellent detail. The glint in the eye is great. Love the title. So sharp. I am sure the hook on the end of the beak can do some damage. Awesome work. TFS

Hi Tony
I love these mergansers
A lovely mug shot. I postd a female hooded merganser, title - The lady is a Punk. Her haido looks very much the same. I like this pic a lot, but feel you need a bit more spce pn top, crop a bit on the left to get a stronger compo. His expression is lovely, TFS

Intéressante photo pour ce superbe punk ;-) Sérieusement c'est une belle photo. Jolies couleurs et bonne netteté.
Well done.

Oi Antonio.

Esta foto etá muito boa, não ser o pescoço que esta um pouco sobre-esposto. mas é tão dificil com estes bichos coloridos.

Great capture and very appropriate title, Toni.

Look at the hairdo on this one! It seems he used an entire bottle of gel and neglected to wash it out! LOL!!

Great capture, perfect DOF and focus.


hola Toni:

Que gusto encontrarte en el TN tambien.

Esta foto esta encantadora.... llena de vida.
felicidades .


PD. te colocare en mis favoritos, ok ?

Hi Toni, I like this photo a lot. The crop is perfect and I like the silver water under the bill. Technically very good DOF,POV,focus and lighting. Well done!!
