I AM GLAD TO DEDICATE THIS PICTURE TO GOLDY goldyrs
***************************************************************
Alcedo atthis (Linnaeus 1758)
Common Kingfisher (inglese)
Martin-pecheur d’Europe (francese)

Ordine Coraciiformes
Famiglia Alcedinidae
Sottofamiglia Alcedininae
Genere Alcedo

Presento un’altra immagine di Martin pescatore, che dedico a Goldy, che dice di avere nel cuore le mie immagini di uccelli e che in fondo le preferisce a quelle delle farfalle goldyrs. Il martin pescatore è uno degli uccelli che più ho fotografato e nel mio Hard Disk devo far posto a quelli nuovi appena entrati che si mettono a litigare per lo spazio a disposizione, essendo uccelli molto territoriali ed aggressivi, per cui qualcuno deve cedere ed abbandonare il territorio alla ricerca di una propria affermazione in altri luoghi.

La fotografia

E’ stata scattata con il teleobiettivo 300 mm., con misurazione della luce spot, regolazione manuale del tempo e del diaframma, ISO 200. Fa parte della serie d’immagini in cui il martin pescatore si dedica alla meticolosa cura del proprio piumaggio ed è stata ripresa da capanno ad una distanza di poco superiore ai due metri, in condizioni di luce molto favorevoli del primo mattino, per cui le tonalità sono leggermente calde. Il martin pescatore è un uccello che predilige i posatoi e quindi si può fotografare facilmente allo scoperto e relativamente vicino, tenendo conto però che è sensibile ad ogni piccolo movimento.

Ciao Maurizio,
A superb shot from your Common Kingfisher series. The lighting is great and themaximum sharpness, colours and composition contribute to a nother very fine portrait of this species from you. This makes it a nice tribute to our THN friend Goldy.
Thanks and best wishes,

Ciao Maurizio
è davvero uno spettacolo questa foto su di uno splendido Martin Pescatore sotto ogni punto di vista. Eccezionale la luce, i dettagli ed i colori. Spero che dopo tanta caccia anch'io riesca ad immortalarne uno: fino ad oggi si sono presi solo gioco di me.
Livio

Ciao Maurizio,
this is a beautiful catch, the kingfisher is on my wish list.
The colours are rich and natural, the POV is also nice.
But I think it's a bit tight down by the feet, a bit more space would be nicer. And the sharpness and DOF look a bit odd, the head and beak are very sharp but the feet are OOF, they use to be in the same focus plane and should retain the same sharpness. To much blur tool?
Nevertheless it's a nice picture.

Hello Maurizio,
Colors of this beautifull Kingfisher are so well shown in your photo. Feathers glittering looks great to me as it bring so much life to the photo. Excelent sharpness comes to increase the overall value of the photo.
Best regards Siggi

This goes right into my favourites, Maurizio!
Simply outstanding, my friend!

Signore "dottore" Maurizio! Catch Very nice. Sembra stagione farfalla è stato completato e aperto al uccelli. Splendida cattura.
Una serata tranquilla,

Hola Maurizio,
Excelente retrato de éste bello martín pescador, el foco perfecto en el ojo.
Excelnte. Un abrazo.

Ciao Maurizio. Perfezione assoluta sotto tutti i punti di vista. Meritano la lode la luce fenomenale, la resa cromatica e la potente DOF.
Comprendo Quanto dice Livio e sono solidale con lui. Io li ho visti sfrecciare a 300 all'ora senza aluna possibilità...

Ciao Maurizio,

Superb closeup capture of the Common Kingfisher with superb details!
I like the great contrast between the colors of the bird and the blurry BG. The sharpness and POV are perfect. The DOF is the best part of your work.
Great composition!

Hi Maurizio,
Outstanding shot of this great looking Common Kingfisher with superb colours and details on its plumage. Great pose captured and you have handled the natural light very well here. Excellent POV, DOF and composition. Kudos.
TFS.

Complimenti maurizio, sei tra i pochi a passare dalle farfalle agli uccellini mantenendo sempre la stessa meravigliosa qualità, fantastici i dettagli, splendidi i colori, stupendo lo sfondo, bravissimo, ciao Silvio

Interesting POV! Potraits of the birds are always amazing because it opens up tons of details on the plumage and the color tones as well. A very well executed shot and with 300mm you must have been very close. Do you use a hide?

Don't know how I missed this in the first place Maurizio, it is a masterpiece, one of the best tele-close ups I've ever seen of this beautiful Kingfisher, TFS indeed!
