Very nice shot, with fine gray background and good sharpness. I like the oranges on the neutral background.
Well done!

That's sooooo lovely, Tommy,
what a cute shot you made - and so sharp and just at the right moment. Also brilliant colours, thanks for sharing

Nice, very well done ..............


Brilliant shot Tommy, great sharpness and perfect exposure. Having a mouthful of eels is such a nice bonus. Very good work.

Great shot! You've captured this puffin beautifully, I particularly like the way his beak is stuffed full of sand eels :) Pose is nice, and the focus is spot on. I suspect there is a little more fine detail in the original though - at first I thought it might be a sharpening issue, but it looks like it's actually a JPEG compression problem - if you used more of your 200kb limit I think it would look even better. I think playing with Curves might pay dividends too. Very well captured :D

P.S. Please consider writing a few more critiques - for TN to continue to be a success we need participation, not just posting images, but critiquing them too... It's obvious that you're a good photographer, so why not share some of your knowledge!

Wow! Excellent capture. Vivid colors and details and very well composed! Great work!

Hi Tommy,
I was at the Farnes on Friday and saw two people with 600s, does yours have camouflage tape on it or just plain black? Great shot, lovely detail and colours and nicely isolated against the sea rather than the rocks.

Very good photo whit great sharpnes.

Great shot, I have always wanted to see one of these birds and this is wonderful. Such a sharp shot with everything right: background, POV, colours. Fabulous

Bonito momento el captado y unos colores preciosas a la vez que una buena composición de la toma.
Un saludo

Hi Tommy

Wow... magnificent shot. Good exposure, sharp and clear.... fantastic... love it!

Hello Tommy! Am I ever happy that you went to the Farnes! This is a great portrait--mouth full, seemingly has his "hands" clasped behind his back, looking a little worried that you might steal his fishes! Marvellous detail. Well done! Linda

Hi Tommy. A masterful catch, in both senses of the word! Good clarity and colour. A classic in TrekNature. Murray.

Tommy, Crazy bird and what a shot you had. Looking at this gives such feeling and I just wondering how you must have felt whenyou looked at this while shooting. Great one. Ganesh
