Hi Jorge

Splendid capture! Truely remarcable!
I think what i like the most is the spot-on focus and the DOF. But also great are the light, colors and sharpness...it's really hard to chose, if you have such a geat picture! :) A very breautiful moment and composition.

Bravo and TFS

Hi Jorge,
The focus and detail in this are both quite stunning, such a clear view of his eye. Beautiful capture with his wings spread like that, great light and exposure and as Horia says the DOF works very well here. A shame the other birds were in front but nothing you could do. It's a beautiful capture.

Hello Jorge
Not much to say that hasn't already been noted. This is a definite WOW. Great composition, sharpness and exposure of the kite's face. Regards.

Hola Jorge
Otra exposicion perfecta.
Colores, detalles y composicion son perfectos.

Good capture, Jorge! Excellent colours in BG.
On regrette juste la présence des autres oiseaux en premier plan...mais la photo reste excellente
Best regards

Hi Jorge,

This is a special photo. I like the moment you captured this guy. Also the lighting is wonderful.Great shot.


Una imagen preciosa. Tiene todo, la luz, la nitidez, el momento... un maravilla. Enhorabuena y saludos

Hi Jorge,
What a spectacular photo. It is so beautiful to see the one kite in focus and positioned in the light. Excellent details and a perfect DOF with the great colors of the carrion. I like it that you have the other bird in the f/g blurred.

Bella imagen en movimiento Jorge, con agradable POV y buen encuadre.
La luz sobre el ave principal de la escena produce un efecto muy atractivo.
El DOF tal vez haya sido escaso, pero es sólo un punto de vista.
Buen trabajo.
Saludos cordiales... Ricardo

Hello Jorge,
The action is so well captured, perfect moment!
Situation is well framed, the birds stand out really well on the bright background...
Bice sharp details and a tad of moyion blur to add dynamics!
Pablo -

This kite reminds me of my cat... "a work of art in search of the prefect frame". I think you've found it! Thanks :)
