Hi Tim,
Long time no see, glad to see you're still posting. Great image of this beautiful bird, I like the isolation of the subject against a distant and completely defocused background. Good exposure and detail, nicely composed/framed.

Hello Tim,
Good photo of this Kingfisher. Very good contrast against the BG. Great colours. I would have cropped a piece from the right side. The bird is very central now.

Great capture Tim.
Excellent BG and details, nice color and light..Well composed, and I like the POV also :)
Well done!

Hi Tim, very nice! I'd love to see it bigger! Perhaps a little warming up would do it no harm Great composition and good control of the exposure. Well done.
