Puffins are great and this photo is too. It's a little bit grainy (I suspect you cropped a lot) but the action is very well frozen. A very good flying bird picture. Well done & TFS!


Hi Zeno. This is a bit noisy, you could try NeatImage (or similar) to see if that helps. Otherwise it is lovely. You have good sharpness and your speed froze the motion beautifully. Good exposure and detail and lovely composition. I want one of these myself, I've been watching them on Springwatch. TFS :)

Nice capture!
Very good details,well composed.

It's a wonderful capture here. I am still trying to get something this way - flying bird, and I still fails.
Full mark for your great work here.
Thanks for sharing...

Belle envolée et quel bel oiseau.

Félicitations !

Very good flight-in, Zeno.
It's a lot of noise in the BG, my little to much PP or itäs from the scanning.
Well composed, nice POV, good colours and details.
Very well done.

Hi Zeno, very nice action shot. A bit noisy but with some post production it can be a very good image.
Thank you for sharing.

Great captured Zeno, what an action shot! I agree with Pieter about the grainy... but other then that, great job! :) TFS
