Ciao Emanuele,
Very succesfull take off photo of the little egret. Focus, sharpness and the freezing of the action is great. Exposure is very well handled. TFS

Ciao Emanuele,
Great action capture!
I like so much this moment captured, great timing on it.
Very good POV, you got a lot of nice details on the wing's feathers and the legs.
Congratulations and thanks for share.
My best regards,

Ottima ripresa in volo. Mi piace molto la composizione.

Lovely composition, beautifully captured. Lighting adds to the overall effect with shadows on the bird, I particularly like the head emerging into the light. DOF good and focus and clarity excellent. TFS

Nice contrast with the silky background.
The action is well frozen and the details are astonishing even at the wingtips where the speed is greater.
Well composed picture.

Ottima compo con il tronco di lato, bella posa, nitidezza estrema (l'occhio!!) e bianco ben bilanciato.

good compo, details and expo.
