Muy buenas Javier, ahora te ha dado por las aves marinas. Veo que se te dan igual de bien que las de interior. Tengo mono de Chorro. Si vas dame un toque. Un abrazo.

Fantastic photo Javier!

It's gonna be one of my favourites! The sharp details from the focus on the head is great. And the blurry wings in motion and the splash of water makes it so powerful! The face of the jammed fish is scary:D Beautiful colors and compostion! Love it!


Wowww, che momento emozionante!
Bello il fermo immagine, bella l'inquadratura, complimenti!

Amazing moment that you have captured - and well composed. I would be very interested in hearing what PP you did with the photo - it has a strange quality to it.

Just the perfect moment. Good sharpness. :)

Perfect moment, well frozen action! I do think the picture is a little oversharpened, but nevertheless this is a great photo. Well done & TFS!


Ya que le llaman a esto critica, y puestos a criticar, lo unico que se me ocurre es que está un poquito ajustada a la parte alta del encuadre y que hecho en falta una comentario, el resto es un verdarero placer para los sentidos.

Hi Javier,

I like the POV, lighting and perfect timing in this shot. The polarizing filter adds some nice colour. I also think you may have overdone the sharpening a little bit.

Hi Javier,
Great action shot, perfect timing. Excellent detail and great natural colours. Great exposure too, very nice shot.

Hi, Javier

I like the combination of (1) high speed (1/2000) that has completely frozen the action (2) the strong lateral natural light (that perfectly outlines the end of the tail, the webbed toes, but specially the water surge), and (3) the flash that, in spite of this strong lateral light, allows to appreciate the main detail in the head and bill with the catched fish.

Good picture of gull in action

Now that is wha birding is all about, getting the action and maintaining the detail, nice camera work.
