Superb shot, you were on top of the action, nice camera work.


Well done, Vasilis. Timing is perfect on this action shot.

Une très grande composition, les couleurs sont extra, l'éclairage est magique et l'action de l'oiseau est très agréable à regarder.


To me, that's a perfect shot!

One could say you could have caught more of the bird's reflection on the water but the composition may have suffered (i.e. you would then loose the perfect diagonal the bird is drawing from one corner to the other, which I think contributes to the beauty of your shot).


Fantastic capture for him and for you :-)
Great pose, excellent sharpness, wonderful light and nice reflection. Thank you very much for sharing!

Stunning shot, Vasilis. Absolutely fantastic. The light on the head and the fish is wonderful. The position of the wings, the sense of action, the splash of water... just wonderful. Congratulations and TFS. : )

Excellent capture of mealtime. Great details. Would have been nice with more of the gull showing in the reflection.

An amazing capture of this wonderful scene, Vasilis!

Exceptional details, colors, lighting, POV.

wow, this in one fantastic action shot, vasilis! :-)
superb job, thor.

Perfectly frozen action. Focus, details, lighting ... eveything's perfect too.
It's just pity the reflection in the water is cut.
Anyway, I like it very much.

Hi Vasilis,
Incredible shot! The detail is wonderful and the action is superb. Wonderful colours, lighting and reflections. I love the water droplets. Well captured!!

Hi Vasilis
Great action shot. Great colours, details, shrpnes, DOF and POV.
Well done


Stunning, the clarity is incredible!
Superb timing and the colours are beautiful.
My only nit would be the cut off reflection, but then I also think the tighter crop works really well too ....
Many thanks for posting.

what a moment to catch. Congratulations.

great capture, TFS Ori

It's a perfect shot. Congratulations.
