Excellent action shot, Hernan. These fleeting moments are very difficult to capture, but you have done a good job. The focus on the frontal parts of the Beetle is pretty good. However, it is the overall action moment that comes through strongly in the picture.
Well done and TFS.

Hi Hernan,
almosy ghostly, ethereal effect to this shot, the lighting is strange but interesting! Good POV and well timed too.

Bonjour Hernan,
Image intéressante, bien construite avec le focus idéalement placé sur la tête de l'insecte. J'aime bien comme le mouvement des ailes est rendu avec beaucoup de finesse et dans une belle lumière. Photo vraiment originale.
Un grand merci

Hi Hernan.
You managed to freeze a terrific moment. It is great luck. Perfect timing, framing and POV. Bravo. Very difficult task and you have solved it amazingly.

Hi Hernan,
Excellent shot of this take-off and you have freezed this action momnet very skillfully. The motion blur on its wings looks superb and I like the studio-lighting effects here. Great image and you have presented it so well. Thanks for sharing.

A very beautiful take off shot! I like a lot the softness dominating the photo and the partly saturated yet magical light from the side. Very nice shot my friend.
