Hola Ferran,

Inemjorable captura, excelente rendimiento y nitidez con ese 1/500s, tenía entendido que e difícil obtner este efecto por debajo de los 1/800s. Excelente luz y muy buen cielo (excepcional en realidad).

Hi Ferran,

This Gull in-flight is magnificent! I LOVE the opened beak and the beautiful eye. Wonderful wing positions as he flies through the sky. Colors, details, background and composition are all terrific.

Hello Ferran !
Wow, you have captured the bird in such a great pose, with the wings making a nice V (like my first name ! :-) and an open beak. I also like how the gull stands out on this vivid blue sky. Splendid composition and POV, and even the OOF parts are not that much diturbing, I think. It is really a gorgeous picture. Very well done !

Hello Ferran
very beautiful in-flight shot, wonderful POV and superb details on the whole bird, i like the light effect on his plumage and the amazing blue sky
Have a good night

Hola Ferran:
magnífica tu foto! intenté varias veces sacarles fotos pero en movimiento es muy dificil, asi que te felicito porque los detalles se ven muy bien y el contraste con el fondo azul es muy bueno.
Lástima que no te hayas puesto en contacto conmigo, yo vivo del otro lado de Bariloche, en Villa La Angostura. Ya lo sabes para la próxima vez.
