Hi Angelo, very good sharp picture of a very difficult subject, good composition, Juan

Hola Angelo
Una buena e interesante toma de este Cernícalo.
Sobre todo debido a que esta tomada prácticamente a la altura del ojo.
Un saludo

Direi ottima anche come nitidezza

Hello Angelo,
Excellent in-flight capture of this female kestrel, sharp, well-composed and with natural colours.
Best wishes,

Hi Angelo,

A great inflight shot with good sharpness and detail,I posted a ws and added some contrast which imo the above lacks off,

Well captured and TFS

Hi Angelo

This is definately a very beautiful in-flight!
The POV is excellent and the pose you caught it in is fantastic. Grey framing and composition, too!

Bravo and TFS

bonjour angelo
plusieurs personnes ce sont interressés a ce cliché pour le retoucher,et je le trouve un peu "voilé",mais la netteté est tres bonne et l'oiseau pas souvent presenté en vol.

Great picture! It almost seem the Kestrel is hanging still, but I think she had a lot of speed. Good sharpness and nice colorcomposition.

Bel Falchèt!!
ottima presa, resa molto naturale.
Riguardo i WS, si salva solo quello di PSV, gli altri potevano astenersi.

Hello Angelo,
already a lot of smiley, and I am convinced this image deserves it. It's not easy to capture flying falcon, especially not when their speed is high. And I assume this one passed by like a rocket. The image shows nicely the underwing.

Hi Angelo

Congrats on a perfect in-flight shot. Love the clarity and sharp details. TFS.

Ciao Angelo, bellissimo gheppio, splendidamente "congelato" nel suo volo. Grande foto ciao Silvio

Bellissima foto Angelo: uno dei tuoi tanti migliori scatti. Foto nitidissima e perfetta sotto tutti gli aspetti. Anche la composizione mi pare azzeccatissima!

Complimenti, TFS, Emanuele

P.S.: ma che vuol dire TFS?

Hello Angelo
Very nice shot of Kestrel,
Perfect focusing and colors,
