stunning photo - shame no notes - they really make a difference.

It is lovely and sharp and you can even see the fish the gull is after.

hi vasilis.
Tha´t a great action photo, you got a right moment of the capture of something, the colours are grea and the focus is great too. I liked most the colour you got. well done.

Its a fantastic in-flight capture with great timing Vasilis. The light is great and focus looks fine. There does seem however to be a smoothness to the image like a noise reduction program was used (to much)? If so I think it has lost a little detail in the plumage. Composition would have been better if the full reflection were shown. I'm certainly not bashing this because its a brilliant capture and I wish it were mine. 7/10 Very well done.

Excellent! Fantastic colors and composition!

Hi Vasilis,
Very nice action shot !! I like it very much.
The light is beautiful.

Fantastique !

Wow, what a pose, and the light is wonderful. Excellent timing to catch the main action and the water splash too.
Only one nit: the partly cut tip of the wing in the reflection (so it's only 99.9999999 ... % perfect). ;-)
Moving the camera upward would also have made the composition more symmetrical, which I find nice in shots using reflection.
The silky smoothness of the plumage (rather lots of tiny detail) I find benefits the image with the reflection also being smooth.

Greta shot Vasilis.
Very good exposure, nicely composed, good colours and well detailed. Good POV. Very well captured, thanks for posting

Beautiful, with the colour and "frozen" water. really tremendous. I would really like to know more about this shot. Please add notes!

Very artistic shot, Vasilis. The light and the details give this picture a surreal quality. I love the way the wings are spread out in a twisted kind of way, and the way the legs are pulled in. Excellent POV and composition. Well done and TFS. : )

Superbe image. Dommage que le reflet soit un peu coupé. Cependant l'ensemble est remarquable dans sa composition.
