Greetings friends, I present/display to you to this Common Kingfisher(alcedo Atthis), a photo who I made in June and until it had not had time now nor to see it. This put in a small branch, in a pool of a river, where frequently it was sent to fish. I hope that you like.

Hi Jose
Unfortunately there is nothing to critique here :-) Your photo is perfect: sharpness, POV composition, buckground and exposure.

Only the note is a little bit short
Best wishes

Hello Jose Luis,
There are a lot of photos of Kingfishers on TN, but this is one of the better. Perfect sharpness, composition, POV, light and colours.

La ripresa cade bene sull'occhio, tuttavia l'immagine nel suo complesso trovo soffra un po'di micromosso, con colori non ottimizzati al meglio, anche se gli stessi possono risultate non sapendo le condizioni della luce in ripresa, naturali.
Tuttavia indubbiamente ci troviamo difronte ad una splendida, immagine, alla quale vanno sicuramente i miei piu' cordiali e sinceri complimenti.
Un saluto Pierdamiano

Tremendo enfoque y encuadre, pero si hay que destacar algo es la luz y sobre todo los colores. Es increible la viveza y realismo de esta toma; de lo mejorcito que corre últimamente por esta web ( a mi gusto claro ). Algún día espero hacer algo así ...
Un abrazo José Luis.

Hola Jose Luis,
Great capture! Bravo and TFS

Whoaaaa! What a great shot! Congratulations Jose Luis for this so sharp, wonderfully well composed and exposed picture! This is such an interesting bird that I had the chance to see only once in my life. This is very, very well done! I love those tones of colors. TFS,

Hello Jose probably one of the best Kingfisher shots I've seen apart from the one they have a fish in the mouth but this has a lot of quality giving it the edge I'm adding to my fav as I havent got anything close to this quality with a kingfisher rgds Necip.

Hola José Luis:

¿Con que pensativo eh? Claro estará pensando, que caray está haceiendo este observándome con este ojo de cristal tan grande, igual me hace daño.

Después de esto ¿No se fué volando para perderte de vista?

Si hubiera supesto que lo ibas a inmortalizar con esta foto tan perfecta seguro que se habría quedado para verla.

Saludo cordial amigo.


Beautiful image Jose.
Nothing whatsoever to complain about here :)
Excellent work, and a pleasure to view..
Very well done!

Hello Jose,
What an amazing shot you've taken!!
This is perfect I think. Superb details and sharpness, excellent composition DOF, personally, I love this POV and colours.
TFS and Regards,

Hola Jose
¿Cómo podías tener guardada una joyita como ésta y no tener tiempo ni para verla? Tu carpeta de fotos debe de ser como un cofre del tesoro lleno de auténticas maravillas. ¡Qué gozada!
Ya quisiera yo algo parecido, pero los pájaros no son lo mío, buaaa! Ni siquiera he llegado a ver nunca un martín pescador, con lo que me gustan.
La foto es perfecta, amigo, ¿qué más puedo decir? Me encanta!

Perfect shot. What a beautiful pose. Composition, POV and just brilliant. The light was great.
If really looking for a nit, I see a slight orange cast which could have been fixed with photoshop.

Impresionante toma. Mis felicitaciones
