The Common Kingfisher
Beautiful photo with good composition and nice colours.
Regarding your question, I always try to focus on bird eye waiting for an eye contact in order to click. This it is not always easy especially in action photos like my drinking gull. In post processing I used the same amount of sharpness throughout the whole body of the gull before resizing.
Nice capture with good framing.
Nice light management is also appreciated.
Perfect colour and sharpness.
Photo is good. But I would have preferred a different composition. So much of space on the right is not required. Instead you could have given the same space towards the left(where the bird is seeing).Or you could have framed a vertical composition.
IMO, if you get a habitat picture, it is very nice to show as it is. No need to blow up the image and make a bold picture of the subject.
These are just my opinion , hope you dont mind.
Very nice photo of this kingfisher in beautiful light and colours. Nice blurry background too. Good sharpness. I agree with Arjun about the composition. There's a bit to much empty space IMO.
This Kingfisher seems a little bit lost alone on this twig..the great blurred background helps to give this feeling. But somehow it makes the shot special.

Nice little bird....Difficult to shoot because she is very shy....I meet it only once in 4 years and I do not have the chance to take a shoot.

How are you dear friend? This is a wonderful shot of this little, little kingfisher and what you have done with this photo is right.It looks lovely as it is on that dry branch waiting for the prey to stir in the water.His perch is a beauty in itself. Fine photo in all respects. Thanks for sharing, take care.

Hi Srikumar, Great shot of this Kingfisher by your window. Beautiful colours along with splendid composition and angles. I like so much that you included only one single branch in the frame which looks so cool. Thank very much

WOW ! what a great chance you have to live near a pond where you can see Kingfishers,
I have to drive 30 to 45 minutes of car to a nature park to see them and I see them only
1 or 2 times on 10 ! not an easy photo to do, you POV obtained its expressive eye-contact,
the light is very beautiful, and I can see enough of details of its plumage, TFS
