Were I go!
Very nice in flight portrait;).POV,sharpness,simple BG and composition are wonderful.I think it would be better if you cropped %25 from left side.

Nice shot Sebastian. You've captured the head and beak with great sharpness & detail. Really stands out against the dark blue BG. The dark spots are easily removed with the spot healing brush or healing tool in photoshop. I really don't see much of a halo effect here..Perhaps very slightly noticeable due to the light subject/dark BG in this particular shot..Well done.
I have no word, so sharp and so clean.
The details are amazing!
What camera you used?
Very very very very very very WellDone!
Salut, Sebastien. Very good shot of this gannet in flight. The head and body of the bird are in sharp focus, and the blur at the tips of the wings suggest the movement of flight. Excellent POV. How did you manage to be on eye-level with this bird? Were you on a cliff?
I do not see a halo. However I do find the little white spots (other birds and light reflections) a bit distracting. I made a little workshop for you to clean that out. Hope you like it. : )

Wow ! Une superbe photo, le sujet est bien arrêté et l'éclairage fait bien resortire les couleurs et les détails dans le plumage.
Félicitations pour la netteté.

Great capture Sebastien, you did a great job here getting this close in and in focus too. I'm always impressed by inflight shots and this is no exception. In a perfect world I would have liked a little more room around the wings and the bottom. Nevertheles, great shot.

Hi Sebastien, This in-flight is tack sharp and well exposed. The blurred wings adds to the movement of the image. I am sorry that you did not get the whole bird in the frame it would have been an exceptional capture then. Very well done.

Thank you for sharing pictures and notes and for the enjoyment which they give to me.
Good day Sebastien. Wow! What an intense shot. It's breathtaking! The clarity, colour and sharpness are super. If you had captured the entire bire it would have been fantastic! As it is it was very well taken!

Going through your photos this one caught my eye immediately. It is a superb photo of a flying bird, one of the best I've seen.

Sebastien, this bird is very beautiful, and you did a great job here too.
Excellent pov, composition and sharpness. I like colors and lighting too.
