Hi Fredrik, Puffins are beautiful, unique birds. Gorgeous colours which you captured nicely. Janice

Hi Fredrik

Sharp details, good clarity and well composed. Excellent POV and good exposure. Well done!

Great colours and DOF use on this photo.
This is a good portrait for a special bird like a puffin is.

Regards, Petru

Hi Fedrik, exellent composition. Due to the backround there is a dramatic effect in the picture, the expression of a the bird is very well captured. Maybe the part of the left is a bit distracting but it doesnt bother me. Well done and TFS Reina

Excellent composition Fred! DoF and colors are great framing is ideal with BG nicely put.
Just a bit too centered though.
Thanks for sharing!

Hi Fredrik,

Very sharp and colorful photo. Also background is very nice.


Hello Fredrik,
Lovely shot! The colours are quite amazing here. Picture has very good details and I like the pose of the puffin a lot. The POV works good too.

PS. Just a little observation. You post your pictures on TN, lots of people spent their time to look at the picture and comment them. I guess it would be fair if you try to do the same. That's what TN is all about.
Regards, Monika

Magnificent image, Fredrik.
What a peculiar head this bird has!
Excellent POV, DOF and colours.
Thanks for sharing the picture of this unusual but beautiful denizen of Iceland.

Wonderful colours here and focus,
He looks so sad and to see these guys in the wild is just amazing

Hi Fredrik, wonderful shot of this nice bird. Good notice , TFS
