[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Taken on a recent bird photography foray with friends. I have never done anything like this before, and found it incredibly difficult. In fact, was getting a bit suicidal thinking I was a naff photographer! However, it started to come together a bit towards the end of the four days - but any hints or tips you experts out there can offer me for next time - I'd be grateful!

Hi Ann,

Fantastic capture.Great shot,with excellent composition.Ligthing, colours and sharpness are good.

i think you did well to capture this action shot your patience paid off in the end it seems, and practice makes perfect. i love the composition of the birds in particular.

Hello Ann,
A belated welcome to TN!
This is a great action shot (on Grassholm?) of a Gannet landing to join the colony. The sharpness is pretty good and composition excellent, as is the POV. Maybe slightly OE, but a minor point to a high quality image.
Thanks for sharing this beauty,

Ciao Ann, superb capture, great action shoot with splendid composition, veryy well done, brava, ciao Silvio
