The position of the wings in particular is well captured.

Bonjour Asbed,

Je trouve que l'oiseau est bien placé dans le cadrage. La prise de vue permet de voir les détails et les couleurs du faisan en vol. La bonne luminosité rehausse les couleurs de l'image. Bonne journée.


Hi Asbed,
excellent photo of this bird in fligh. Amazing colours. Beautiful sky as a backgroung. Perfect sharpness. A lot of dynamism.
Thanks for sharing,

Hallo Asbed
Excellent action shot with good timing,the colours and details also are very good, especially the patterns on the wings. The white of the cloud gives the image an artistic appearance. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hallo Asbed,
A great composition with good clarity and detail. It almost seems as if the Ring-necked Pheasant is planning to land on the cloud. The BG and your POV was perfect. Excellent work my friend.
Best regards,

Hello Asbed,
Your image brings back wonde5rful memories from my childhood when these beautiful birds were plentiful in our area. Sadly to say they have all vanished from the region due to pesticides and some extremely cold winters in the late 70's.
Perfectly frozen in mid air while showing wonderful detail and beautiful colors. TFS.

Hi Asbed,
Congratulations for the big number of birds you managed to capture, and for this wonderful shot. Even without eye contact, it's powerful and effective, due to the well exposed lights, colors, and most of all the well composed photo (although I can imagine the scene wwith a tighter crop, too). Excellent choice of shutter speed to freeze the action. Perfect image. Bravo.
Besst regards, László
