I was able to shot some of these kingfisher while in South Africa, but there is no way I would have been able to have as much detail as this with the equipment I had... and still have to be honest :-)
This picture is simply... perfect !!!

Excellent capture on this Kingfisher. The color is certainly eye popping on this fellow.
The detail and DOF look to be perfect. I like the composition and backround here very much.
Good Luck on you surgery, and check in when you can.

It'a a beautiful bird you have caught.
Very well composed, nice colours and very good details.
Excellent work, my friend.

Hi Gerhard, brilliant capture, great details and very nice composition of this stunning bird. I dont think the colours here are over-sat but you are on the limit Id say. Most animal pics benefit from a boast and this is the case here, its very effective for this shot. 8/10 Excellent work.

Gerhard, and you wrote that my picture is good... THIS is MASTERPIECE my friend! Bird looks amazing, pose, composition, light - all great. I think colours are good, digital Provia works well and Kingfisher shines with its help!

Technically, exposure and focus perfect.
Artistically, good DOF with blured BG, bird stand in lower part of the frame so not to centered and I love the diagonal branch. And excellent colors saturation (normal when exposure is perfect) ;o)
Wonderful and TFS

Yes, I had an invite to the site by my nephew, so I dropped the hippos along the way. As you know, time is tight, but I will post the impies as soon as I have time - I must at least comment again on the last posts.
We have discussed this gem - you know I think it rocks - I must still try the affect myself.
Sold 3 lenses, have the new Nikor baby, must senf you some shots.
Sorry I could not make it with Paul on Sunday - it was our last day out before Pietta's op today.

Hi Gerhard, I don't know much about Malachite Kingfishers so cannot advise on the colour but wow, it is striking. I thought our native Kingfishers were bright and cheerful but this one beats it hands down. It's a great image: sharp, detailed and a great BG to match the colours of the bird. Nicely done :)
