Hello Parvulescu,

I loved teh composition of this picture. It is excellent with the snow flowing diagonally and the King sharp and colourful.

Well done, good work.

Warm regards,

Hi Parvulescu,
I simply can't resist to applaud you for this shot. Excellent contrast.

What a little beauty!!

I think the snow is causing the bird to be underexposed a little bit. You have lost the detail on the wings as OEing any further will cause the snow to become blinding.

I might post a workshop.

Hi Parvulescu

Great and original picture of this Kingfisher. I've seen this bird ones, and hope to see it lots more. Great colours.
Love the composition with the snow. Too bad his back is a bit dark, but that doesn't really mind.Well done!

TFS, Thijs

Salut Lucian,

Frumoasa captura, interesant esta ca l-ai gasit in mijlocul iernii pe bietul pescarel, dupa cate stiam eu trebia sa plece de mult in sud.
Felicitari si un an 2008 plin de realizari si bucurii !


Hello Parvulescu,
That kingfisher must be cold. Good details and contrast in this composition.

Hi Parvulescu,

This is a icy bird. You did a great job catching this bird in this environment. The contrast between the feathers and the snow is superb. My compliments!

Hello Parvulescu,
Nice shot of my favourite bird!
Nice colors and composition!

Hi Parvulescu
This is a great shot of this kingfisher. Beautiful rich color and great exposure especially in the snow.
Very nicely done and thanks for sharing.

Hallo Parvulescu
My first posting on Trek Nature a few weeks ago was also a kingfisher and my eyes tend to search for different types of these colourful birds. A real neat close up, well presented and worth a smiley. In comparison to mine this kingfisher is such a graceful, vivid and dignified looking bird, and what I see in size wise it is quite tiny. Its beak is nearly bigger than the bird. I just love the colourful feathers on its head. I really enjoyed looking at it, and it is my first time I see a presentation of a kingfisher in the snow. Thanks for sharing.
Kind regards

Superba.Imi plac mult culorile pescarusului.Se pare ca in acea iarna pasarile din Timisoara nu au plecat in tarile calde.
