Hello Raimond,
I see that you cropped this picture; It is better that way. This is a good inflight shot of this raptor but I wish you added more info as I don't know much about him. You caught great details in a nice POV. TFS,

well captured, nicely composed, nice dof, good pov,
tfs & regards

Hello Raimonds,
This is a very good action shot, excellent detail and light, Great capture! Nice color and detail,
You've captured it with sharp details and good exposure and excellent composition. Well-done!

This is a female Common Kestrel (Falco tinnunculus)
Excellent shot. It is nice to write a note with ID of animals, explaining their life, and to say why and how you took the shot.

This is a beautiful in-flight shot Raimonds.The clarity is amazing,I liked the freezing of the wings' and tail's movement a lot. TFS

Hi Raimonds,

This is an amazing picture with superb details. Very good POV. The BG is fabulous. It creates such a nice isolation of the bird. Great composition too! Well done!

Hello Raimonds... nice flight catch.

I like it a lot: composition, sharpness, lighting, DOF, focus, color, background, framing.

I like it: POV.

I don't like it: notes.

Very good presentation.
Thank and greetings... Ricardo

Congrat, great DOF and POv.

Hi Raimonds,

What a superb shot of this Kestrel I have tried many times to get a shot of one of these birds when they are hovering but as yet had no luck.

You have everything spot on, exposure, focus depth of field. GREAT

All the best


Stunning and extraordinary TFS

Hi Raimonds,
The wings here..wow!
Good in flight.
