Hi Andrea,
Nice symmetry in this capture. Good exposure with the feather detail handled well n the closest bird. I guess given your shooting platform it must have been a difficult shot to get. Have you got hold of your D200 yet?

Impressive capture.Now this is the right crop in my opinion. I see we use the same lens.Sure isa good one.

Ciao Andrea,
la foto è molto bella.
Per le schiribille sono stato molto fortunato perchè le avevo vicinissime alla macchina.
Complimenti per le tue foto.

Buona Pasqua

Andrean, Excellent work on this photo, Captured and composed well great colors perfect details, TFS Kyle

They look as if they may have had a slight disagreement! ;) Well taken, just a suggestion but consider reducing shadows by about 10-20%, this would bring out more of the feather detail.


Happy Easter Andrea,
Very colorful birds, they seem born with no eyes as they are so dark--not your image. The birds that we have here in the Northwest that live and feed in the rivers and streams are all dark gray and black. I saw one too far away for a photo this past Wednesday.
Nice capture,

Hi Andrea,
Very nice capture of Two!
Great POV, good colours and details.

Superbe spécimen avec de superbes couleurs

Félicitations pour l'éclairage.
PS est-ce qu'ils sont en chicanepour se tourner le dos comme cela.
Merci pour l'envoie et au revoir.....JP

Hello Andrea, Very nice birds and POV. The sharpness was not the best, though.
It must be a difficult shot. Birds never get in on place and you were on a boat. wow! I made you a WS I hope you like it. Cheers, Gabriel
